I was very lucky to go to a Pan Am reunion this past March in Honolulu. Because of Pan Am's history in the Pacific, they are part of this exhibit. You can see P-47's and other planes that were used during WWII. The museum store is great as well. We had an event here and that was even better.

This does not compare to the Air and Space in DC, They are well on their way to having a lot to look at. The partial Zero they have from the Pearl Harbor attack is awesome. They are also working on new exhibits that are sure to please

The museum has an in depth history... More

I love museums. We were doing the entire Pearl Harbor tour in one day, so had very little time at each place. When I got to this museum I was super tired and I walked into the hanger area at the back of the museum and was immediately overwhelmed with a sense of "wow, this is boring." Big planes are... More

We were really impressed with the museum, I'm a pilot but I was also in the Marines and my wife was in the Navy. We thought the staff has done an excellent job and the planes are just flat out fascinating. Wouldn't pass this up and will do it again next trip. Go see how big a Navy F14 Tomcat... More

Definitely one of the highlights of my visit to Honolulu and Pearl Harbour. If you are visiting Pearl Harbour and Arizona Memorial, add the Pacific Aviation Museum to you package. An excellent selection of restored planes, jets and helicopters. Great historical presentation of aviation aspects of Pearl Harbour attack. Motor coaches are provided to transport you from the Pearl Harbour... More

When I stood on the grounds, and imagined the chaos and horror of December 7, I felt chills. There are still bullet holes in windows and chips in the pavement from that fateful day. I have visited many aviation museums. This is not the best, but it is a fine museum with splendidly restored aircraft, unique historic planes and great... More

Pacific aviation museum is a great day trip, while you are in Honolulu. It has a little bit of everything about aviation and the history of Pearl Harbor. It is situated on Ford Island , which was the center of pearl harbor attack. It was a witness to all of the horror and bravery of that day. The staff was... More

I am a pilot that has flown dozens of restored World War 2 aircraft. I have visited aviation museums world wide, yet nothing could have prepared me for the Pacific Aviation Museum. The bullet holes from the attack are still in the windows, when I touched the bullet holes from the strafing runs on the sides of the buildings and... More

This was part of tour that I did and it was the least interesting part of the whole day. The main hanger only has a few air craft and they pretty much stop telling the Pacific War after the Battle of Midway. The second hanger have a lot of jets, but they really don't have anything to do with the... More
