Upon leaving the U.S. Army Museum of Hawaii, I was told the museum would be closing for extensive upgrades, repairs, and enhancements probably until late December or into early 2023. So, check the website for updates. I just did and they closed February 12th.

The Army Museum is a short walk from all the major hotels in Waikiki. If you immerse yourself, it will take 2-3 hours. The history, culture, and exhibits presented are awesome. All they asked for was a donation.

You could definitely understand why upgrades are needed as the years have taken a toll on this once important fort. But, it shouldn’t stop anyone from a wonderful historical walk.

With the above said, I will return to see the modifications in 2023.

Anyone visiting Hawaii after the museum reopens, GO! I am sure it will be better.

I always count the Army and Bishop Museums as my must see, go to places on my trips to Waikiki / Honolulu.

Plenty artifacts, photographs, and ephemeral pieces from World War II to Vietnam on display.

Admission is free and is closed on Sundays and Mondays.

The merchandise shop is equally interesting for collectors.

Free museum in a great location with good collection of guns, uniforms, a small Japanese tank, and a larger tank. Gives a good explanation of the attack on Pearl Harbor. I think it is closed Mondays.

This museum offers some great history, and has free admission which is rare for Waikiki. The museum presents the history of the battery, coastal artillery, and Hawaii.

Visited the first Saturday of December. The facility is well within walking distance of the Waikiki hotels, so getting there was easy. The museum is free, but they accept donations. You can easily spend 2-3 hours at this museum (or more) as the numerous exhibits display the interesting history of this place. As a result, I recommend wearing comfortable shoes to avoid getting tired on your feet. The museum has many displays of older and more modern weaponry that the fort and the army possessed during the different time periods - including the different periods of World War 2, Korean War and the Vietnam War. Moreover, the museum features the fort's construction, operation and maintenance over the years. Also, there is a small gift shop that's worth a brief visit. I highly recommend all military history enthusiasts visiting this place.
