Many of the exhibits at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor focus on the Pearl Harbor attack and World War II. As you enter, see Hangar 37, a former seaplane hangar that survived the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941, and was the first hangar developed for the museum. In Hangar 37, admire an authentic Japanese fighter plane and American bombers, and learn about how America manufactured planes and trained pilots to mobilize for war. Next, visit Hangar 79, another survivor of the attack, which has bullet holes on the windows of its doors. Many contemporary jets, historical helicopters, and civil aircraft are housed in Hangar 79. Beyond Pearl Harbor history, the museum features a short film, photography exhibit, and other materials related to aviation, World War II, and life on the island. After touring the museum, test your skills as a pilot on one of the flight simulators.

    Loved this museum. Hated having to take a shuttle bus, (I use a scooter for mobility) and my wife hated the long walks to see the different sections of the museum.  more »

    Many planes lovingly restored. More planes planned for restoration. The museum is in a historic building and is filled with historic planes. They also have a huge gift shop.  more »

    Did this as part of a whole pearl harbor tour and was interesting. Seeing the glass with bullet holes still in them is sight to see in person. You do have to leave your bag in a locker before going onto Ford Island. I had to carry my camera most of the time for this, but was worth it.

    Overall fantastic experience with balanced approach to history. Was very impressed that this tried to call tell the story from both sides. Also very cool to stand on the spot where WW2 for the Pacific was ended.

    Lots of cool airplanes and history. The original building still has the bullet holes in the glass and doors. A little expensive but all the proceeds go to benefit restoration of the aircraft.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
