Great old hotel with many artifacts from the time Admiral Nimitz lived there and before. You will learn so much about his difficult life and his determination to always do his best--it is no wonder he was such a great Admiral.

Pretty cool place, and makes you appreciate those that have served in the Navy! It's one of the more interesting things to see in the area. It would be ashame to go to Fredericksburg, and not stop here.

This is a grand Museum. Really well done and so informative. Our history comes alive. It was located 1/2 block from our lodging. We could walk. You have two days to use your ticket. The mini films are great. The museum was very comfortable. Nimitz...More
