Donation Impact

Your generosity has enabled countless additions and improvements to the 55,000 sq. ft., 6-acre museum complex. Visitors can walk through the Admiral Nimitz Gallery and immerse themselves in the life and legacy of Chester Nimitz. Live Re-Enactments at the state-of-the-art Pacific Combat Zone place the visitor close to battle in the Pacific and bring to life the Museum's exhibits. Young visitors can experience the new Children’s Exhibit in the Bush Gallery and learn how America used language, math, and science in the Pacific War. These young visitors will also learn about heroes from diverse backgrounds and communities.

Educational programming available via our website and through virtual community events and Distance Learning programs with schools are just a few examples of how we are transforming how we deliver value to the community. All of this is possible because of tremendous generosity. Every donated dollar helps provide these programs and projects and sustains us.

My dad served in the Pacific during WWII, and I think it’s important that we continue to educate people about how significant WWII was to all of our lives – not just the families of those who served. This is a world-class museum that does just that, and I am glad to support it.
