Explore the 6-acre Museum Complex and immerse yourself in Pacific War history, American and Japanese culture of the time, and heartfelt tributes to the heroes of the Pacific Theater.


We have a special place where we honor the individuals, ships and units who fought in the Pacific Theater — our Memorial Courtyard. The 19th Century limestone walls that surround this solemn garden now bear plaques that recognize heroic contributions to the war effort in the Pacific. The Veterans’ Walk of Honor winds through the Courtyard, paved by bricks inscribed with additional tributes.

Individuals and organizations may sponsor a plaque or paving brick.  If you would like to honor your hero, see more information in “Get Involved” on this site.

“They fought together as brothers in arms; they died together and now they sleep side by side. To them we have a solemn obligation — the obligation to insure that their sacrifice will help make this a better and safer world in which to live."
— Chester W. Nimitz, Fleet Admiral, USN 1885-1966

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.
