Cute little museum with great replicas / rebuilds of warplanes. Kids will like it. Don't pass the movie theatre for a short (11min) presentation. The guides and volunteers are very friendly and knowledgeable.
The Combat Flight Simulator is an open-air cockpit in front of a theatre screen wherein you play the video game verson of CFS. So, for $10 each, you can skip it unless you have never played the game. The gentlemen there are most helpful. Purchase your ticket (and time slot) at the front entrance counter but don't forget your coupon from one of those Honolulu guide books.
Now trust me on this one - DO NOT EAT at the restaurant! Bring a granola bar or wait till you are back in town -- this was one of the worst meals I have ever ever eaten. My two boys (8 & 13) agreed. I had a Chinese fried rice dish that was greasy and filled with fried SPAM and frozen peas! My son had a pulled pork burger that he couldn't and wouldn't eat and that is almost unheard of with my 13 year old boy! I got a coffee that was seriously some sort of bad hospital-grade swill that came with a FREE packet of CoffeeMate ... they had to look for milk/cream. I paid over $40 for 3 meals and drinks that didn't get eaten. It is a cafeteria-style place that looked cool and had "interesting" items on the menu but SKIP IT! We all felt ill. Have a hot dog at the BowFin exhibit instead.
However, DO go to the other Hangar and see the actual planes and go in a SeaKing helicopter. The holes in the glass on the hangar doors are from the bullets during the attack of Pearl Harbor.
