If you want to go central U.S. I recommend the National Museum of the Pacific War.
Located in Fredericksburg, Texas.

I’ve been there and it has some very unique items. They now have a living History Program.

If ya'll wanna come to Colorado, I can get us into Cheyenne Mountain. Just imagine it. All of us, locked up in a lead & steel lined room deep in a mountain with a series of terminals in front of us. Then a voice comes from a speaker....

+1.

I'm about an hour from there and have been there twice. Both times 'rushed' and only got to spend a half day. Would love to go there and spend a bonafide full day (or two) with a fellow aficionado.

I'm assuming that sometimes it's "Let's play a game now, eh?" with all the Canadians there?

Murfreesboro might be the place to have it. Not that there's anything wrong with Nashville (except Nashvillen of course). It has Feable Weiner too. Any musicians out there? We could create a band called Murfree's Burro. That might be a better name for a bar.

Oh, you wily Gorn, I have you fooled!

I work in Murfreesboro (The historic courthouse downtown, built before the ACW) and live about 8 miles away!

I would be happy to be the point guy for this. We have lots of great new hotels around here and like has been mentioned before lots of things to see in the region.

If you all hurry with this thing, I am driving through Nashville, Murfreesboro and Chattanooga on the way to Blue Ridge GA and Atlanta GA for Christmas. I can take out a day or two to spend with you rather than some of my relatives.

Central Ohio. Dayton has the Air Force Museum. Near me we have the Motts Military Museum. Columbus has Pubs, Pubs oh and did I say Pubs. There is a Air field just north and west of Columbus were they are restoring a B-17. I know a guy who was a ball gunner on one, Yes he is still kicking, and he gives talks with pictures and will be more than happy to talk about his experiences. We can go shooting too.....GP

McMinnville, OR has an entire museum built around the Spruce Goose. Plus it's in the middle of Oregon wine country. Lots of wine tasting in close by.

So THAT'S the explanation behind that "Barefoot Bandit" news story from a few years back.

Not that I have anything against Texas but it seems an odd place to put a museum of the Pacific War....isn't it hundreds, probably close to 1,000 miles away from the Pacific Ocean?

New Orleans - WWII museum is great and NO is a great town.

San Diego - USS Midway, great tour and weather is San Diego is predictably good.

Phoenix - Commemorative Air Force is based there and weather in winter months is great.


Chino, CA - 2 huge air museums

I believe the main CAF field is still in Texas, but they have a branch in Arizona.

They winter in Mesa (suburb of Phoenix). Pretty much all of them are in display every day and air shows are fairly common from Nov - April.

There might be a bit of a connection.

So this was just a charade then to build the Chester Nimitz Museum but to get someone else to pay for it by labeling it the "Pacifc War" museum.
Well, I always thought those Texans were crafty... ;-)

New Orleans would be of interest for a number of reasons, the WW2 museum is great, Mobile is just down the road (USS Alabama) and a bit further is something that is a real gem, the Naval Air museum at Pensacola. We could have a moving meeting! Hal

Mobile isn't too bad of a drive from NO, but Pensacola is a bit much, especially as most would have to back track to NO to catch return flights ...

The Chester Nimitz Museum was the original footprint for the museum. It was relatively modest in size and scope. The museum of the War in the Pacific was subsequently added and, more recently, expanded. It's 'connected' by a courtyard filled with militaria. Most people (including the docents) consider them two separate museums, administered by the same people.

I saw it back in the day when it was co-berthed / co-housed with QEII. What an anachronism!

Or you could come to Canberra, and the Australian War Memorial ... the new ANZAC Hall is great, with G-For-George, an Me-262 and -163, Zero, Landing Boat from Gallipoli etc.

Though, yes, it is a bit out of the way ... for those of a North American persuasion.

Head SWish from LA and proceed straight on for the next 7500 odd miles ... and be careful for the Gendarmes and their speed traps near New Caledonia

It's always good to meet up with fellow brothers. This is me and JWE/Symon/John in B'ham AL on his way moving down to the Gulf back in 2010 I think.

I've posted this pic before, so I'm sure he won't mind. It was very fun to get to sit and have a long conversation over dinner.

I also met up with AUTiger in Memphis (Collierville) a while back as well.

Hoping to hook up with Big B one of these days soon!!

I live in ROLL TIDE country so make it close!!!! Love CW battlefields. Walked all over Horseshoe Bend last summer.
