In 1971, The Nimitz Foundation was created to provided additional development funding for the museum of the extraordinary Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, a native son of Fredericksburg who achieved greatness as commander of the Central Pacific Theater in World War II. We established the original Nimitz Museum in the former Nimitz Hotel. Since then, the Museum has evolved to become one of the most well-regarded military museum complexes in the nation.

THE VISION

To provide national leadership in articulating the history and lessons learned from the Pacific-Asiatic Theater of Operations during World War II and to offer educational platforms for their application to current and future national security issues. To continue to preserve the legacy of Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz and the men and women who served in this theater of operations. And, to facilitate programs that honor and support all veterans, past and present.

THE MISSION

In an agreement with the Texas Historical Commission, the Admiral Nimitz Foundation manages and provides financial support to the National Museum of the Pacific War in order to:

  • Preserve and exhibit the material history of Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz
  • Preserve and exhibit the material history of the war in the Pacific-Asiatic Theater during World War II
  • Create and participate in programs that honor all veterans past and present, and programs that provide strategic insights into national security issues affecting our country
