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.

Went on our own viewing the Museum, however, there are guides available. Have been to the museum several times and nice to see the tower repaired.

Great variety of WWII aircraft and other aircraft as well as incredible overview of Pacific WWII History. Being on Ford Island and in hangers that were present at the time of the Pearl Harbor bombing was incredible.

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
