U.S. Army Museum, Honolulu

(4.4/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Set inside one of Oahu's once-vital coastal artillery installations, U.S. Army Museum provides a military history of the islands and U.S. operations in the Asia-Pacific region. The exhibits deal with American involvement in Korea, Vietnam, and the Pacific Theater of World War II, as well as Hawaii's military tradition since ancient times. You'll find that the exhibits offer audio-visual experiences--photos, videos, and sound effects--in additional to displays of military hardware such as tanks, guns, and traditional Hawaiian feudal weapons. Don't miss the Gallery of Heroes, a special section dedicated to recipients of the Medal of Honor and other distinguished decorations. By using our Honolulu trip itinerary builder, you can arrange your visit to U.S. Army Museum and other attractions in Honolulu.

  • Think we were here years ago but it must have expanded because we spent well over an hour and finally left because we were tired. It is Free. 
  • Great military museum and would recommend it as one of your stops. Very informative about some of the history of the Hawaiin Islands. 
  • This Museum was really interesting and I enjoyed learning more about the war history of Hawaii. You could easily spend hours here. My husband and I went back a second time to buy gifts from the Museum...  more »

  • Great museum in a 1911 built costal artillery bunker. Museum spans from 1780s to the Vietnam War. Complete with a WWII Era Japanese tank
  • Remarkable and free visual history lesson of Hawaii as it relates to the military. Good way to spend an hour or so.
  • Very interesting and informative. Depending on how much one enjoys history, this museum could perhaps keep one entertained for 5 hours. 2 hours was not enough time for me. Best of all, this museum is FREE.
  • Interesting miltary museum housed in pre WW1 Battery Randolf.Tbe guns were removed but the reenforced concrete was too well built to demolish after WW2. Lots of information on Japanese Hawaian contributions to the US war effort. Located at the west end of the Waikiki strip. Free addmisson!
  • Great experience- no student discounts though...
