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.

Be sure to take the one hour docent tour. You can book online. It is well worth the $10 cost. Our guide provided so much information and we enjoyed the museum very much. It is just the right size to learn about the attack on...More

My wife and I and another couple toured the museum this week. We all really enjoyed it. It was a very sobering experience.

This place was a blast from the past, we got to meet an old Solder who was there when it was bombed and he was really informative on the actual day, looking at all the old planes was really good also

I recommend going to see the real thing! The visit helped me to realize how big (and small) the various planes and fighter jets were! Real fun for kids too.

Seeing the bullet holes in the glass that were made during the attack on Pearl Harbor was numbing. To think so many died that day and quite possibly a bullet that went through those windows could have killed someone that day was humbling. The planes...More

This is one of those must see sites for anyone visiting Pearl Harbor. Aircraft of all eras have been professionally and lovingly restored to give a close up view, and docents have been well trained to explain their role in combat operations. I've visited some...More

It was fun and interesting to learn about the aviation planes of WWII and other earlier notable aviators such as Emelia Earhart. Overall it was perfect for a family time and educational for the young kids! Highly recommend!

I came here for an evening event and was wowed by the planes inside. It's definitely a step back in time to see the uniforms, planes and historic memorabilia that they keep here.

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
