Visitors will learn about the American and Japanese forces as they prepare for battle on a Pacific island. Weapons will be discussed and demonstrated and later used in a final attack on the Japanese-held island. Attendees will feel the rumble of a Stewart tank as it moves past the audience and onto the battle field. The only operational WW II flame-thrower in Texas is used in the final assault. Appropriate for the entire family, admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students. World War II veterans and children under six are admitted free of charge. Tickets may be purchased at the Pacific Combat Zone at the beginning of each performance or in advance at the Front Desks of the Admiral Nimitz Museum on Main Street and the George H.W. Bush Gallery on E. Austin Street.

The Pacific Combat Zone’s “Ship Store” will be in full operation before, during and after each performance.
