Thought we would drop in for an hour and spent three hours and still need to go back. Excellent displays and clear explanations of the events. Will give you a much deeper appreciation for that time in history and the people who participated

The museum is actually 3 different properties, the Nimitz House, the George Bush Gallery and the Pacific Theater. You get 48 hours of access with your ticket. It is well worth your time to visit this fantastic museum.

That depends on your interest level. If you just want to go through and see the highlights then give yourself at least 2-3 hours. Our tickets are good for 48 hours so you can come and go as you like.
