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.

Attended with my airplane-obsessed 2-year old son, husband and parents visiting from the UK. Excellent layout with many well-maintained, impressive planes accompanied by helpful information and history of each. Worthwhile piece of history to catch whilst in Oahu!

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....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.

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.
