National Museum of the Pacific War Offers a Unique Show for Spring Break Travelers to Fredericksburg, Texas

On March 9 - 10, the National Museum of the Pacific War will hold its Living History Program at the Pacific Combat Zone. The program demonstrates weapons and strategies that were vital in the struggle for dominance in the Pacific theater in World War II. Re-enactors use landing craft, halftracks, explosive charges, and WWII flamethrower to explain and illustrate the equipment and tactics used by the American Army and Marines and the Imperial Japanese Army forces in WWII. The mock battle represents one such battle-the deadly struggle for island of Tarawa.

There are three shows daily at 10:30, 1pm, and 3:30. The program takes place at the Pacific Combat Zone, which is located two blocks east of the museum complex on East Austin Street between Elk and Lee.

Admission to the 90-minute program is $7.50 for adults and $5 for students. Children under six years of age are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the George H.W. Bush Gallery or online at http://www.pacificwarmuseum.com. Tickets are also available at the Pacific Combat Zone on the day of the programs, but due to their popularity, advance purchase is recommended. Admission includes earplugs.

The National Museum of the Pacific War is a Texas Historical Commission property supported, operated, and managed by the Admiral Nimitz Foundation.
