Admiral Nimitz Foundation TX
Founded in 1970, the Admiral Nimitz Foundation is the support organization for the National Museum of the Pacific War, the only institution in the continental United States dedicated exclusively to telling the story of the Pacific Theater battles of World War II. The Foundation has raised over $20 million to support not only capital projects and expansion of the Museum, but also for its many educational programs, such as its popular symposia series. Originally named The Admiral Nimitz Museum, the Museum has grown into a dynamic, first-class experience that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and from all backgrounds. In addition to nearly 34,000 square feet of indoor exhibit space, the museum boasts an impressive display of Allied and Japanese aircraft, tanks, guns and other large artifacts made famous during the Pacific War campaigns.
