The Railroad and Heritage Museum is hosting a bus trip to Fredericksburg, Texas on Thursday, September 19.  The trip includes a visit to the National Museum of the Pacific War and time to explore the charming Hill Country town.

Expanded in 2009, the museum is the only institution in the U.S dedicated exclusively to telling the story of the Pacific and Asiatic Theaters in World War II. Located on a six-acre site, the museum includes the George Bush Gallery, Admiral Nimitz Museum, Pacific Combat Zone, Plaza of Presidents, Memorial Courtyard, and Japanese Garden of Peace. Guests will be able to explore the museum at their own pace.

Guests can choose to spend their day at the museum or take some time to explore the town of Fredericksburg.  “Fredericksburg offers some wonderful ways to explore our history, from the perils of World War II to the German families that first called Fredericksburg home.  Of course, plenty of shopping and dining makes for a fun day as well,” said Railroad and Heritage Museum director Stephanie Long. “While this trip is a fundraiser for our museum, we hope to continue to offer our patrons a variety of fun and educational ways to explore history.”

The bus leaves from the museum at 7 a.m., returning around 7 p.m. The cost is $45 for Museum members and $50 for other guests. Call the Museum today at 254-298-5172 to reserve your seat!
