Voted Best Military History Experience of Texas
The National Museum of the Pacific War is a dynamic, world-class experience designed for visitors of all ages and backgrounds. It is the only institution in the continental United States dedicated exclusively to telling the story of the Pacific Theater battles of World War II.
“…this is perhaps the most comprehensive, well-organized and informative military museum I've ever seen. A museum of this quality—and importance—needs to be seen…” — Mark Yost, Wall Street Journal
Located on a six-acre site, the Museum includes the George Bush Gallery, Admiral Nimitz Museum, Pacific Combat Zone, Plaza of Presidents, Memorial Courtyard, Japanese Garden of Peace, the Nimitz Education and Research Center and (opening soon) the Oveta Culp Hobby Education Center.
