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.

Audio tour helps you understand the vehicles history, use and features. One plane sat in a swamp for 64 years! Most exhibits are inside a warehouse that was not destroyed during the attack on Pearl Harbor. If you like planes, you will enjoy this museum. Once you get to the main entrance at Pearl Harbor, you will need to board... More

Very nice experience with a knowledgeable tour guide. We had a special tour with only 4 in our group plus one tour. Good facilities with a wide array of historically significant aircraft. Well worth the cost of admission.

This was my second visit and my husband's first. He works in the airplane business and was like a kid in a candy store. It's not as big of a deal for me. It is a neat place to visit but I wish there were more planes to see. They do have a nice café to get food and drinks,... More

I took the guided tour and learned a tremendous amount of information. The guide was knowledgeable and a retired fighter pilot himself. Made the whole experience to Pearl Harbor that much more meaningful.

Visited the museum as part of our Passport ticket. Sadly didn't have a large amount of time so it was a whistlestop tour around the museum although what we did see was excellent. We also ate at the café which was good value, good food, good selection and quick service.

We visited as a part of a Pearl Harbor experience tour. Wow! We probably wouldn't have done the Aviation museum if it hadn't been part of the tour, but we were so glad we did. We stayed with a guide (I think his name was Jerry) that talked us through all of the exhibits and had wonderful knowledge of WWII.... More

This museum features aircraft displays of different world war era. Although not as huge as the National Aviation Museum at NAS Pensacola, Florida, this is a good tour to see. The separate hangar is a "working" hangar where artisans continually work on restoring aircraft to be added on display. Right next to the hangar is the Ford Island Tower (Operations... More

What I liked most about this place was the inclusion of female aviators, which you don't get everywhere. Very cool to see all the planes too.

The aviation museum provided great views of planes, stories of those involved in the progress of aviation and some of the sacrifices that were made during war (and peacetime). Take a walk to the hanger to view bullet holes that have remained as reminders of the attacks on Pearl Harbor.
