Only Rex on museum display. Lone Star Rex and Admiral Nimitz' motor barge can be found proudly displayed at the fantastic Museum of the Pacific War, located in Fredericksburg, TX. Strongly recommended for anyone with an interest in WWII PTO history.

Been to that museum a number of times and I didn’t see either of those. But I will the next time I go.

Wasn't expecting that much when I visited although I never need much of an excuse to visit the Hill Country. The museum was way better than I thought.

It's one of the finest WWII museums and surrounding grounds that I've ever seen. I've been there half a dozen times and I always run out of time.

Been there and really enjoyed the Museum. Also the local Fredrecksburg is a pleasant little town with some good cafes and the Guadalope River not too far away for river tubing or canoeing. Go - Have some Fun, and see the Museum.

Many years ago, I was prowling around the surrounding grounds.

There was a Priest-type (105mm on a Sherman body) and I think a Type 95 (or 97?) Jap Tank which I could crawl over and peer into.

Lots of Japanese uniforms, weapons.
An open/unshielded (I think? 5in?) ship mounted AA gun you can sit in the Aiming Seat.
The Japanese Mini-Sub.

Lots and lots to see, well worth the trip.

I ran out of time when I visited as well.

I hear the museum in New Orleans is pretty good. Haven't been to it myself despite going there multiple times; somehow, I always end up on Bourbon Street.

Alcohol related/fueled events seemed to take up a lot of time when I visited New Orleans as well.

Has anyone been to the Army Field Artillery Museum at Fort Sill? I don't get out much anymore but I'd like to see all the self-propelled artillery they have there and it's not too far away.

Been there several times. If you want to see their inside museum collection the last time I went its by appointment only, otherwise its closed.

Also if you're going, try to make time to visit the 45th Inf. museum in OKC, if you've never been. Lots of good stuff inside and out.

The museum in New Orleans is pretty good - I went with the wife unit so was not able to spend as much time as possible there. Also was not able to see the PT boat that they were working on making into a runner again. The museum also has a fair number of WW2 vets who volunteer there.

All that said, New Orleans is a must visit city if you get the chance. Bourbon street is 'interesting', but better venues off a couple of blocks to the primarily Eastern side of Bourbon. Food is generally awesome - music ditto - I plan on getting to Jazz Fest at some point. Lot's of interesting tours, haunted evening walk, cemeteries, etc. And you can stay in one of the smaller 'boutique' hotels for a reasonable rate (no swimming pools, gyms, restaurant, room service, etc - but if that's what you are looking for in New Orleans you're missing the opportunity).

Caveat - still high crime rates in certain parts of the city but easy enough to avoid.

Regards,
Frank

Went there over a decade ago while in town for a conference. It was excellent. Well worth the trip.
