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.

Went later in the day, less crowded. Nice selection of aircraft. Was hoping to see a Hellcat and possibly a Corsair, but unfortunately there were none.

We had a great tour and learned very insightful info on this era. Our guide was a retired Air Force officer and he had a passion for telling this story.

Even if you don't want to see the planes take the time to go there and see the bullet holes that are there from the attack on Pearl Harbor. There is a lot of interesting aircraft there on display.

This tour of displays is a must to include in a visit to Pearl Harbour, Arizona Memorial etc. In the hangers are many excellent displays showing the US involvement in WW2 and the extent of the technologies at the time.

Aloha John R, The Bus (Oahu's public trans) will drop you off at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. There is no direct bus service from Waikiki to the Museum, but it does take riders to the USS Arizona/USS Bowfin Submarine... More
