Admiral Nimitz Museum at the National Museum of the Pacific War


While Fredericksburg may be best known for its German heritage, peaches, and wineries, it is also home to what USA Today calls “one of the top five history museums in the country.” The 6-acre campus features memorabilia, exhibits, and installations, but the flagship gallery dedicated to the life and achievements of namesake/native son Fleet Adm. Chester W. Nimitz is must-see. Housed in the former Old Nimitz Hotel, the state-of-the-art building was designed to give visitors the feeling of moving through an oversized watercraft. Escape the heat and take a deep dive into the life of a true Texas war hero.
