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

An awesome collection of Pacific WWII aircraft. They have very interesting displays to go along with the aircraft, as well as a cool WWII-era theme in the first hangar. And you can't beat the location; the second hangar still shows damage from the attack. Must-see while in Hawaii!

Arrived on the bus knowing nothing about the museum. While the static displays were excellent, I kind of expected more. The rear hanger contains jets and helicopters but was nothing spectacular. Amazed the see the crashed B17 bomber recovered from Papua New Guinea.

Two hangers of airplanes. First hanger WW II planes primarily US but one Japanese. If you are a fan of history or WW II you would enjoy walking thru the hanger. Spend time to watch the introductory film. Outside on walk to second hanger you will see remains of a Flying Fortress as well as several intact jets. The second... More

What a nice piece of history. The staff is great and the exhibits are wonderful. Everything is so very well put together. I wish is was a bit larger. Well worth the cost of admission.

Not a large museum but well worth the stop. Nice displays & interesting background info. Our guided tour was definitely worth the time to gain added insight into the significance of each display & how it related to WWII/war history.

Was wonderful as a woman to see the info on the WAF's and WASP'S hard work! Slightly disappointing that there were not enough 'rangers or guides' on the hanger floors tbh. Too much dependence on audio guides. All good though.
