Definitely worth seeing. The information here is a nice prelude that goes nicely with the Pacific War Museum. I would definitely recommend visiting this place first then going onto the other sites.

Enjoyed a look back at Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz life and career. Includes many family photos and artifacts of his early life, military life and later years.

Check in here first, to buy your Museum pass and learn about Admiral Nimitz's childhood. This site was a hotel in the late 1800-s and early 1900's. Great background on the area and the German settlers of the area.

This museum contains a lot of history in a well organized space. The tickets are good for two days and that is good as you could easily spend several hours here. Worth the drive for sure - very impressive.

A well set up museum that followed the timeline of events. Only complaint is there was not enough light and it was difficult to read some of the documents
