The aviation history of the United States is part of some of the most iconic incidents in the world and the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor showcases just that.
The museum occupies two hangars (37 and 39) and the Ford Island Control Tower. The visit begins with Hangar 37 that survived the Pearl harbor attack in 1941 and is a 25,000 square foot space where you can see aircrafts like Japanese Zero, a P-40 fighter, and a F4F Wildcat among many others. A small documentary showcased here relives the attack.
Hangar 39 covers a huge space of 80,000 square foot. Notice the blue windows of the Hangar and you will still see the bullet marks from the attack. Don’t miss out on the MiG-15 and F-86 Sabre aircrafts kept here.

Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor Reviews & Ratings
This is a nice little air museum. It is composed of two hangers and outdoor displays. The museum focuses on aviation around the islands and has several educational displays. They are also in the process of restoring aircraft to add to displays and you can see them in the restoration phases. One of the cool things here is during living history day or open cockpit days, check calendar ahead of time, you can sit in the actual cockpits of several of their aircraft. The museum is located on joint base pearl harbor hickam so you will need to arrange access ahead of time to visit the museum.
Aviation buffs are going to love this place. There are all kinds of planes from both sides of World War II in the main museum. They did a great job covering the experiences of some of the survivors. They also have more recent (Cold War) military airplanes and helicopters in the Hangar next door.
One of THE MOST SPECTACULAR places I've ever been! Memories made for a lifetime. What a treasure of artifacts and information about one of the most critical, pivotal times in the history United States of America. Additionally, what an amazing, state of the art museum to visit! You must see this to believe it! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
I enjoyed the area focused on the attack of 1941 and some of the other battles in the pacific but I feel some of the visuals can use work. I was slightly disappointed that the P-40s were common E variant and not the B/C model at the attack. Also seems to be too much spent/focused on the more modern aircraft.
Interesting place that captures some Japanese and American aviation history. Not a terribly large museum so you can tour it in about 2 hours. You can see bullet holes in glass from Dec 7 1941.
