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.

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.

The final of the four attractions @ Pearl Harbour - Definitely worth adding to your tour (buy a Passport $65) - Have seen more comprehensive displays but was good none the less. Remember to allow all day 6-8 hrs to cover all 4 attractions.

If you are interested in aviation, especially WWII planes, this is the place to visit. It is full of history and many of the aircraft are being lovingly restored by volunteers. In addition to the older aircraft, there are quite a few planes and helicopters...More

My husband and I chose to purchase the Aviator's Tour at the Pacific Aviation Museum at Pearl Harbor. Our tour guide, Rich, was so knowledgable, and went above and beyond our expectations to make our visit informative, entertaining, and memorable.

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
