Pacific War Museum – George Bush Gallery Reopening

December 8th, 2009 by Lynn MacWithey

The newly expanded George Bush Gallery of the Pacific War Museum has reopened.  Yesterday, December 7, 2009, approximately 5000 people attended the ribbon cutting with guest of honor, George H.W. Bush. 

George and Barbara greet the crowd of 5000 guests.

 I took a quick tour and it is an amazingly comprehensive museum. Done chronologically, and by battle, it is modern, interactive, and a testament to our veterans and those who sacrificed their lives.  It is a must see – no where else in the United States is there a place like this.  You can easily spend a day or more there.  It will even keep your teenagers occupied for hours – and they need to see this.  Stay at our bed and breakfast in Fredericksburg, just a half mile from the museum, and consider coming during the week when crowds are smaller and you can take your time.
