It's always interesting to see reviews about a site that is aimed at a very specific audience - in this case, people like me who are "just plane nuts". My 2-hour visit last week was far too short, but I was with 3 other people without my level of passion for both history and flying machines. We had a 2-for-1... More

Go on the Bowfin submarine and the Mighty Mo and all the planes that no longer are flying and you can actually get close and touch things that... More

If you do this museum after Pearl Harbor, Arizona Memorial and USS Missouri, you'll find the information starting to get a bit repetitive. I know I know, it's history and they're all discussing the same tragic day in history, there's only so many ways they can tell the same information. I guess it's good that it's a bit repetitive, they're... More

The museum is in two hangers that survived the attack on Pearl Harbor. Hanger 79 still bears the bullet holes. The first hanger is air conditioned with nice displays of the aircraft that fought in WW2. There is also a flight simulator, a gift shop and snack bar. The second hanger is not air conditioned. It is full of airplanes... More

A bus takes you to the museum from Pearl Harbour. I had read the museum was a work in progress. There were about half a dozen aircraft displayed and the free audio tour was informative on them. We were disappointed by the limited number of aircraft. You could walk through the exhibit in a few minutes.

Well presented and easy to see up close in your own time , get on board some aircraft and really see what they are about. Also understand just how close the threat is of action when you see the bullet holes in the hanger windows from the strike that came out of nowhere and caught America off guard and it... More

This was my first visit to the Pacific Aviation Museum and was very pleased with it. First stop was the P-38 simulator. This was a nice sim that you get 20 mins to fly. Typically you pay $10 and get 5 mins, but here you paid $10 and got 20 mins! After takeoff, you spend the majority of the time... More

This was a little disappointing after seeing the Arizona and the USS Missouri. Having to go the hangar was hard when your in a wheelchair and it was very warm. They should have a shuttle (golf cart) to take handicapped patrons to the hangar. The best part of this museum was meeting and visiting with a WW II veteran who... More

Ford Island, in the middle of Pearl Harbor, has the distinction of being one of the oldest military airfields in the world. It also has the distinction of being right in the middle of the infamous December 7 attack by Japanese zeros. Learn about that day from the perspective of those caught in the middle, and view many of the... More
