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 café 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.

This is a working museum, ie they are restoring and rebuilding planes from the originally sourced or salvaged parts. They displays are great in both providing historical context, description of the plane model, and history of the plane itself. The planes were in pristine condition, no rusting prices of metal to be seen here! If you've watched tora tora tora... More

that are still left in the hanger brought it to life. You can still see the remnants of the attack that was so devastating. The hanger has planes and helicopters. The museum was quaint with dioramas.

This is our second visit to Pearl Harbour. We signed up to go with a personal tour guide (Jack) for the Pacific Aviation Tour which was an extra 10.00 each person. It was well worth it. Jack was in the military and had a lot of interesting information to add during the tour.

We had a marvelous experience at the aviation museum. They have some of the most awesome planes from many time frames. They are set up in great displays inside the museum and there is a huge hangar where many more are displayed while they are being refurbished. It is definitely worth a visit and if possible, go with a guide... More

Simple but always nice for aircraft lovers. The location is moving. My 7 years old daughter loved to be able to drive the spaceship. Very nice shop.

What started with one hanger of WWII aircraft reproductions is definitely getting better. They have now added a second hanger of aircraft from various eras, including modern examples like the F-14 Tomcat. Walking around looking at aircraft is not for everyone, but for those who enjoy it, this is a way to spend a couple of hours.

All of Pearl Harbour is moving and gives you a lot of things to think about. I can only send my prayers to all of the people that were on the island when it was attacked.

We went during an event. So it was a little crowded. It's very educational for kids that love aviation. The Cafe is very clean, love the 1940/50's throwback vibe. I can see they have regulars that love this place. In the museum, is an mock flight simulator that my son loved. Don't forget to check out the other hanger with... More

We would not have visited this museum if it was not part of a tour that we were taking. It was interesting to see the planes and I was overwhelmed by their history and their size. The museum did a very good job explaining which planes were used in which wars and who the key players were. I did enjoy... More
