Fleet Admiral Chester A. Nimitz grew up in an historic building which has now become a museum. Not only does it include a lot of interesting material about the man, but it also provides an entree to understanding the mission and strategy of the naval battles of World War II. There is an excellent bookshop connected to the museum. If time permits, a visitor will want to be able to see the National Museum of the Pacific War, as well.
Hours are 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Admission is $12.00.
You may be fortunate to see a ceremony such as this one; an old soldier is honored with a plaque on an outdoor wall. This old soldier was my father-in-law, being honored a year after his death. He fought and was wounded at Okinawa.
