Overview

One of the principal Pearl Harbor Historic Sites, our unique interactive museum is located near the Battleship Missouri in the battlefield hangers of historic Ford Island which were attacked by the Imperial Japanese Navy on December 7, 1941, the beginning of WWII. Aircraft, such as a Japanese Zero and the Stearman in which former President George H.W. Bush soloed as the war's youngest aviator, illustrate how aviation helped stem the war. You'll view historic videos, including a movie of the beginning of the war. Enjoy the authentic gift shop, 1940s themed cafe Laniakea, and the combat flight simulators in which you can virtually fight the battle of Guadalcanal in either an American or Japanese plane.Pacific Aviation Museum's mission is to develop and maintain an internationally recognized aviation museum, which educates young and old alike, honors aviators and the support personnel who defended freedom in the Pacific Region, and is dedicated to preserving Pacific aviation history.

My 17-year-old son and I recently visited the museum. We chose the guided tour. One of the docents, who was an X Air Force pilot who served in Vietnam, took us around. He was an excellent historian. He had an incredible memory of all of...More

The drop off point at the main entrance is coned off, making handicap drop off difficult. Also, no wheel chairs available at main entrance.

Great exhibit. Bullet holes still in the hanger. There is an Asian guy that does tours. His passion is exhilarating. Wish I'd got his name.

We took our teenage grandchildren to visit the museum and hanger 79. Seeing the actual bullet holes in the hanger glass and exterior walls was chilling to see after the attack on Pearl Harbor 75 years ago.

Given the history and significance of Pearl Harbour as a military base for so long, I felt the display was lacking some key aircraft e.g. P51 Mustang, B52 Bomber. Great to see some immaculately restored and as-found derelict aircraft from USA, Japan, Russia and more...More

If you're staying near Honolulu you could just catch a bus to the Pearl Harbour Memorial and then pay for what parts you want to see. A bus to the Aviation Museum leaves from inside there, cost included in the entrance... More
