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 is a great tour if you are an aviation enthusiast, my wife wasn't very impressed by the display (but she's really not into airplanes). So you have to be aware that just about everything here is aircraft related, some very old aircraft and parts...More

I saw a brief description of the story behind this B 17 E online. It's a great story. The museum has some great historical pieces like a Wildcat and a couple P 40s. The F111 from Australia was impressive. All in all a great experience.
