  • An amazing museum. We were there for 4 hours and we needed more time because of the richness in content and exhibitions. They have a complimentary audio guide that gives a deeper understanding of the panels, artifacts and displays. The ticket is valid for 48 hours because the staff knows that the museum (3 buildings and over 50+ sections) needs some time to be explored completely. The staff is very friendly and will be glad to answer your questions regarding the museum, the history, or the different exhibitions they have. Definitely plan a complete day for this if you like history.
  • Great displays in a beautiful building. Tells the story of the war and the reasons behind it in a creative and informative way. Modern use of a constantly turning layout keeps you focused on the display in front of you. Make sure to have time when you go as the museum is quiet large and you will need several hours to see it all. Don't worry you will still have time for seeing other sites in town. Also there are two other museums, Nimitz's house and a third location that houses a PT Boat and other diplays.
