Headed to Fredericksburg this weekend? Don’t forget to stop by the National Museum of The Pacific War where they will be doing Pacific War reenactments out at the Pacific Combat Zone. It is a 90 minute program that puts you on the front lines of battle. Experience first hand U.S Marines moving in on Japanese defenders. There will be flamethrowers, landing crafts, tanks, and explosions and you will be right in the middle of it all! You will witness the tactics of the U.S. Army, Marines, and also those of the Japanese. Watch how hard they fought at Tarawa, Peleliu, Iwo Jima, and Saipan.
So, how do you get your hands on tickets? Easy! You can get your tickets through the museums website, in advance at the George H. W. Bush Gallery, or the Museum of The Pacific war, or at the gate. However, we don’t recommend you wait to buy at the gate. These reenactments are not only tourist favorites, but local favories as well.
Tickets cost $7.50 for adults, $5 for students, and children under six can get in for free. Your ticket also comes with earplugs, as it can get pretty loud.
We are looking forward to seeing you, and hope you enjoy your stay!
