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.

We were very impressed with the variety of aircraft on display. The focus here was on airplanes primarily used in the Pacific rim conflicts. We took the tour, which lasts about 90 minutes. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Recommended for all interested in aircraft.

We enjoyed our visit but unfortunately one of the two hangars (the one with the Zero) was closed due to flooding. Admission prices were reduced and of course, it could not be helped. What we were able to see was interesting and well done. We...More

There are better aviation museums but the Zero is rare and worth seeing. The swamp ghost b52 is cool also.

I really enjoyed my visit here! Great collection and tour guides that share the wonderful stories of these planes. Make sure to ask about the story of the Swamp Ghost B-17!

two hangars worth of history, one of our grandfathers worked for Republic Aviation on Long Island building these planes, and one mother was a draftsman for Grumman Aircraft during WWII

Close to Pearl Harbor this museum warrants a visit. It shows the planes, both American and Japanese, used in the Pacific during WW II. Quite informative and interesting

Excellent visit. Very informative and enjoyable flying the P-38 Simulators against the Zeros. Be sure to get the Coupon from the Oahu This Week booklet available everywhere. Definitely worth the visit.

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
