Nice museum, photos, artifacts, information, about the islands, those who served...
The Army Museum of Hawaii is one of Hawaii's least known and used attractions, even though it is at Ft. DeRussy just steps from the Hale Koa and Hilton Hawaiian Village hotels, on one side, and the Halekulani and Reef on the Beach on the other side. It has much more to share than Pearl Harbor because its military history... More
This wasn't really on the tourist radar in brochures etc but we were staying close to it and decided on the last day to go in. What a fabulous display. It is run by volunteers and well worth your time
Disliked the hours of operation. They are closed on Sundays and Mondays which limits your choices when you're only there for a few days.
John, You indeed came a very long way to visit our island of Oahu. We are sorry that your time was limited and that you were unable to visit during our hours of operation from Tuesday through Saturday from 9 AM to 5PM. There is much to do on Oahu and we hope that you will visit again soon and... More
We had not been here in years and were pleasantly surprised to see what they've turned this museum into. Holy schmoly!!! You'd never guess what's in store for you to see from the outside!

Mahalo for visiting our Museum again during your recent trip to Waikiki. We appreciate your suggestions on donations, as it was donations that afforded us the opportunity to recently reconstruct the two parapets. Over the next several years we will be developing galleries in the newly available spaces. Please return and see how every donation makes a difference! Aloha! More
The museum is right next to Fort De Russy and is free. The museum walks you through a timeline from the monarchy, WWI, Pearl Harbor through the Vietnam War. Much more interesting than I thought it would be. We thought we would be done within an hour but we never got to see the second floor before it closed.
Happily this coastal artillery installation built in 1911 was not torn down but turned into this lovely display of Army history. The staff is wonderful and the museum is by donation only. Take a break from those sandy shores and go get some education in between surfing!
This museum is well put together and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The history of WWII is outstanding a good compliment to information from Pearl Harbor exhibits. This is a great spot to hone up on your army history and take a break from the craziness that is Waikiki
