Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor - Review
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, Honolulu Reviews
My wife and I enjoyed our visit here. It is always fun to be up close to such amazing aircraft. We enjoyed learning about the attack on Pearl Harbor from the perspective offered here. We were very glad to have been here. Good bless the selfless sacrifice of the military troops!
Great display of aviation history. The first hanger was small, but the musem did a great job utilizing the space to tell the story of aviation during WWII. The displays were beautiful. The second hanger was my favorite part however. It had modern planes and fighters that I grew up making models of. It would have been neat to have some more information on the planes and static displays in the second hanger, but it was still great to see them live.
This is and has long been one of my favorite stops in Pearl Harbor. While the main exhibits are interesting enough, it is the second hangar and the restoration projects, as well as the holding yard for the other aircraft sitting around, that have drawn my interest across 8 years of visits. The Swamp Ghost is probably the single most amazing piece in the museum. A recovered B-17 (G?) which had crashed in the Pacific during the War, has been brought home and preserved. The hard work and dedication the museum restoration and preservation team put into the Ghost led to it being in one piece again, inside the museum. When last I had seen it, it was in several major pieces outside the museum. The museum team has done an excellent job that keeps me coming back every time I'm on the island.
Short film is a must see along with a second hanger filled with refurbished planes and helicopters. The crew that spends their time in the hanger repairing these for future generations have skill and passion. A must see. Military ID required or a Tour group can get you on base. The hanger saw some action and has a story to tell. On your way out, don't forget to look up
How can I come to Honolulu without coming to Pearl Harbor! There is so much history here. Before I only read about this from history book or TV. Now finally I get to witness the exact location of the history. Very well organized. The place is kept very clean. They have museum displaying photos and items from the war. They also have film showing the real footage of the war. Definitely a place to go in Honolulu.
