The Pacific Aviation museum is located on Ford Island. Next to the large hanger is the still-standing air traffic control tower that survived the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Scaffolding is all around the tower with workers restoring this historical building.
Admission was $12 with a military discount. Two hangers contained aircraft such as the P40, Japanese Zero, B25, SBD, F4F, and N3N. My husband truly enjoyed this place, as he’s a pilot and majored in history. At the entrance is a huge panorama on the floor of the area, which was quite neat to see.
There’s a small cafeteria where we had lunch. I do not recommend this place at all! I had the mahi mahi sandwhich, which tasted terrible. I wondered if the fish was not fresh. Tony had the cheeseburger, which was ok. Portions were small and the food was overpriced. When we first arrived to the place we could smell something delicious in the air. We thought it had come from the cafeteria at the musuem. No, it was in the building across the street. We didn’t realize this until we left the museum. I would recommend coming to this musuem before/after lunch.
