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.

every boys dream: to see jetplans and fighters in 1 hangar. Some planes are old and some are newer. But they are all beautiful to see

When visiting Oahu this is a must see. The staff is friendly, very knowledgable, and highly motivated. We joined a tour group for the USS Missouri and I highly recommend that. They open at 7am, but the line is clear down the sidewalk by then....More

I wanted to see this while I was there. But afterwards I thought I probably could have skipped this & honestly spent more time on the Missouri. But honestly, a personal preference. I mean for me honestly the only highlight was seeing the windows in...More

We have been to Oaho and Pearl Harbor many times. This was the first time visiting the Pacific Aviation Museum. Wish I had known about it before. I recommend the guided tour. Our tour guide Eddie was a delight with many stories.

Lovely visit to the museum. Two hangers to explore and benches to sit on when you're tired. I bought tickets online and received a 2 for 1 price. Much cheaper than purchasing at the door.

We visited the museum as part of the Discover Hawaii Tour of Pearl Harbour. The visit was very good because we had a 30-45 minute free guided tour by one of the volunteer museum workers. We would not have enjoyed the visit as much without...More

I love planes and the technology and development behind them. What you get here is a glimpse of some of the planes if the Pacific theatre of WWII but not all of them. The first hanger you go to is purpose built as such it's...More

We bought the 65 and went to everything. But absolutely you can get tickets to each individually. I believe the Arizona is free. But we liked having the audio tour headphones, you may have to pay for those, not sure. But... More

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
