Owner description: 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 cafe 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.

“We had a great time!”
Reviewed 4 November 2011

This place had some planes(both American & Japanese from WW2). They even have a restuarant styled like it was back then. In another hanger you get to see more WW2 aircraft & how they are repaired to be put on display.

“So much to see”
Reviewed 2 November 2011

I went with a friend that is Japanese. It was interesting to hear what she had to say about the museum and how we agreed on so much about the war. There are a lot of exhibits in the museum to look at.

How often do you get to see these flying machines up close? Really interesting displays of classic & more modern planes. Clean, bright facility and helpful docents.
