This is one of the better Air museums I have visited. They have a great display of aircraft from WW2 to the Korean War jet fighters and helicopters. View the Dauntless, Tomahawk, Zero, Boston and many others including an Australian F111. The place has a great amount of history being attacked during the bombing of Pearl Harbour including bullet holes... More

Don't skip this place. We arrived by shuttle and were escorted through the first two exhibits by a WWII veteran! He was fantastic as were all the other volunteers who work in the museum. Great restored WWII to Cold War planes here. Don't miss this.

You take a shuttle over to ford island to see this museum. There are two hangers worth of planes that you get to see. They have a shop in one of the hangers where you can see different planes they are restoring. You learn some interesting facts about the war and the planes in the war. Neat museum

This museum at Pearl Harbour costs $25 if you don't buy the whole package (battleship Missouri / submarine). We found that just doing the Arizona memorial & this aviation museum was more than enough for 1 day if you wanted to do justice to them both. It was well worth the money & took us 3 hours to get through... More

Great museum even with a few Soviet aircraft on display and interesting volunteers to talk to. Not too expensive either.

What a wonderful museum! A bus takes you to the museum on Ford island. There are two parts to the museum a lot of planes and people to help you guide. The museum is part of Pearl Harbor national parks spend a whole day to just a few hours.

This museum comprises of 2 main hangars and a gift shop. The main hangar features WW2 in chronological order, starting with a diorama of a Zero taking off on December 7 1941 from a carrier deck. It proceeds through the Doolittle raid with a Mitchell bomber, then on to Midway with a Dauntless dive bomber. The tour guide was an... More

My family and I visited the museum right after hurricane Iselle. Every other Pearl Harbor landmark was closed, but the Pacific Aviation Museum stayed open. The staff ran shuttles with their personal cars to take my family out to Ford Island to visit the museum. When we arrived, we were blown away by the care and detail that went into... More

This museum takes the cake for anyone who is an aviation buff. To look and climb over aircraft and also see bullet holes from the Japanese attack gives this museum that wow factor. It is a must see.
