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.

We really enjoyed our guided tour and the flight simulator (extra charge). When visiting Pearl Harbor allow at least 2hrs to account for just the aviation museum.

This was included in the tour by Robert's of Hawaii for Pearl Harbor. Very interesting vintage aircraft, displays and projects under reconstruction. Must see for history buffs and/or airplane lovers.

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
