HONORING HISTORY AND SERVICE

The Admiral Nimitz Foundation has supported a world-class military museum complex from humble beginnings on Fredericksburg’s Main Street since 1971.


ABOUT

The Admiral Nimitz Foundation was established in 1971 as a 501 (c)(3) to provide additional development funding for the Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz Naval Museum, a museum honoring Fredericksburg’s native son and Commander-in-Chief of Allied Forces, Pacific Ocean Area. Since then, the Foundation’s efforts have built a well-established and respected institution, which annually welcomes over 100,000 visitors, including about 15,000 middle and high school students from across the state.


Experience the human story of WWII in the Pacific Theater told through 55,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space, over 900 artifacts, and audio/visual displays.
