National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg Texas

On scheduled weekends throughout the year, the Pacific Combat Zone comes alive with the sights and sounds of combat on a Pacific island as American Marine re-enactors move in to capture fortified positions from their Japanese defenders. Employing landing craft, tanks, explosive charges and flame thrower, the Pacific Combat Living History programs explain and illustrate the equipment, weapons and tactics American Army and Marine and Imperial Japanese Army forces employed in the deadly struggles on islands like Tarawa, Peleliu, Saipan and Iwo Jima.

For a schedule of Living History program dates see below. Admission to these 90-minute programs is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students. Children under 6 are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the George H. W. Bush Gallery or the Admiral Nimitz Museum. Walk-up tickets are normally available at the Pacific Combat Zone prior to the program; however, these shows are subject to sell-outs. Earplugs are provided.
