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.

After visiting several Air Museums across the US, this one seemed very small and wasn't super impressive. It's definitely something to see at least once and the cafe on site has wonderful food! I'd go back just to eat there!

Here are some very rare examples of the USA and Japan's aviation history with the stories of the men and the exercises in which they took part.

My husband loved this, the planes were amazing, note when walking around to see the bullet holes still left from Pearl Harbor bombing in the windows of the airplane hangers.

The day we went Nuskin had rented the one hanger but we still managed to seem most of the exhibits. The short film on the bombing of Pearl Harbour was very interesting considering bombs landed only a few feet from where we sitting. The Zero and Allied planes were very interesting. We took two days to do all the attractions... More

The aviator's tour is a must if you visit this museum. Our guide, Putt, was great company and a masterful story teller.

Paid full price to get a less than desirable showcase of the war planes, helicopters which were outside the hangar where it was pouring rain. NUSKIN rented the Hangar and we did not get our money's worth for the tickets.

My husband loves aviation and we visit every museum we can find. We came from Los Angeles to see Pearl Harbor and this museum. We purchased the Aviators Tour to see the hangers. Nothing was said about them being closed due to a company party. Our guide Chuck was very knowledgeable and spent 2 hours taking us through the main... More

The Pacific Aviation Museum is one of the best I've ever been to. My grandfather was a pilot and got me interested in planes at a young age. For anyone interested in flight, or history this is a great place to visit. With all the model and small scale air craft and carriers, along with a simulating section and a... More

Very good with the exception of missing the restoration and unrestored B-17. That plane was my #1 reason to visit the museum. That area was not open due to a "special event" . Most unfortunate for us.
