This museum is on Ford Island and you can get there from the bus at the Pearl Harbor Memorial parking lot. They have a movie about the history of the attack on Pearl Harbor and several displays with history to Pearl Harbor and more. They are still adding displays and recently added a large display of aircraft in an adjacent... More

You take a shuttle from the visitors center to Ford Island. The hangers has a lot of examples of WWII and later aircraft. It may not be interesting to everyone but those that do go there find it pretty fascinating. I was awed by the wreckage of a Japanese plane that crashed on Niihau. It was also nice to eat... More

This was part of an all day tour for us and included our lunch stop, so we didn't have as much time as we normally would take, and i cant speak to value for us As with other Pearl Harbor museums, there is a narrative headset that you punch numbers in to for each section you are looking at.

Expected it to be far larger for the price. Even after military discount. But the exhibits were well done and kids enjoyed the extra hanger even more than the primary building.

Nice museum, wonderful history. You can watch some mechanics doing restorations. The most impressive were the bullets holes in the hangar door.

This was a stop on a pre-arranged tour. Like another reviewer said, it was the least interesting stop of the entire day, and frankly, a regrettable waste of time on the island. The guide that I had was so bad, we just decided to walk out and sit outside. It was better to walk through the hangar and sit on... More

The gentleman who provided information in the first area was excellent. Hangar 79 was the next stop which is a self-guided tour. Well documented and most interesting. The planes are incredible!!

This is a relatively small air museum residing in a couple of hangers with few interesting exhibits outside. I was lucky to attend a special lecture and tour of the B17E they recently managed to salvage from middle of nowhere in New Guinea and it was fascinating! I loved hanger 79 open floor, no barriers or tapes, you can walk... More

When you go to Pearl Harbor everyone sees the USS Arizona, most see the USS Missouri, many see the USS Bowfin but not many know of this museum. It is privately run and not part of the park service but this place oozes history. The hangers that hold many of the planes have the bullet holes from the Japanese planes... More

This reviews a bit late but, never mind. We arrived from the USS Missouri via the handy little shuttle bus having been to the USS Arizona & the USS Bowfin first using the Pearl Harbour pass which I purchased on line a few months earlier, which meant no dreaded tour group for us and allowed a hassle free trip to...
