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.

There were so many planes to see and so much to learn. You have the vintage planes in one building, then in Hanger 79, they have the war planes of WWII, Vietnam, The Korean War and later war planes. Lots of people to talk to....More

What a brilliant learning experience, it takes you back in time and makes you appreciate all the effort the US NAVY have endured over the years.

Museum is well presented though a little tired. Probably needs more exhibits. More descriptions and details of the aircraft - particularly - outside would help explain things to a 10 year old.

Terry, the guide was excellent. He knew the history of the Pearl Harbour and the aircraft inside out. The 90 tour flew by. After 90 minutes, he asked if anyone wanted to leave... there were no takers. And the tour group was not just techno-nerds,...More

We bought a guided tour ticket and was really happy with the tour: interesting stories and background info. Our two small kids (4 and 6) were clearly too young for this format but I can see how teenagers may be more compelled.

I went with local friends during my island stay. This museum presents a sobering reflection of the reality of the attack on Pearl Harbor and the surrounding areas. Bullet holes riddle the window panes of the hangar. The buildings are massive and house full size...More

This was an eye opening experience about what really happened that day. Taking a tour with a docent is a must as he explained everything and walked us through what happened.

Sure just bring umbtella to walk between the buildings — there are few planes outside but most are inside two different buildings

Arizona is free. You just need to line up the morning of your preferred visit date at the gates. Get there early to avoid missing out!

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
