Pacific Combat Living History — World War II Re-enactments

Three Shows Saturday and Sunday

Volunteer Living History re-enactors will present three shows each day earlier in the weekend, Saturday and Sunday.  The 75-minute shows begin each day at 10:30 AM, 1 PM and 3:30 PM at the Pacific Combat Zone on East Austin at Elk Streets, located two blocks east of the Museum.  Visitors will learn about the American and Japanese forces as they prepared for battle on a Pacific island.  Weapons will be discussed and demonstrated.  All of these weapons will be used in a final attack on the Japanese-held island.  Attendees will feel the rumble of a Sherman tank as it moves past the audience and onto the battle field.  The only operational WWII flame-thrower in Texas is used in the final assault.

Appropriate for the entire family, admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children over six years of age.  Tickets are available at the Pacific Combat Zone before each program or in advance at the Admiral Nimitz Museum or at the George H.W. Bush Gallery.
