U. S. Army Museum Of Hawaii - Review
Originally used as a station to defend the city today, the place accommodates the US Army Museum of Hawaii. The museum takes you through the journey of the US military of Hawaii from ancient times to the Gulf War and the War in Iraq.
The photographs and sound effects make for an immersive experience. Highlights include Helicopters, tanks, guns, vacant bunkers and other weapons along with remnants of military attacks. The models of various weapons used during the war, are just as interesting.

U. S. Army Museum Of Hawaii, Honolulu Reviews
I might not want to give this place the full five stars rating, but it's definitely well above a 4 so I went with the five star. It's a good tour through the history of the military in the Pacific and in Hawaii in particular. Be sure you spare enough time to adequately go through everything. Probably takes at least 2 hours, maybe even three hours.
(Remember that the whole museum is free!) While it is rather small compared to the whole Pearl Harbor area, it didn't feel like a constraint and they used the space well. They covered the history of the fort, as well as the history of the Hawaiian Army. I liked that the view provided was more historically correct (and honest) than in Pearl Harbor. While you're there you could take a look into the small exhibition of the Army engineers on the 2nd floor. As the museum is rather unknown, the prices in the museum store are very good. It may be adequate to leave a donation, as the museum has free admission.
An absolutely great museum, and it is FREE!. There are several donation boxes and if you go please donate. There are not too many places like this. Clean and nice, well presented historical artifacts & items throughout. Great for the history fan or military enthusiasts. Weapons from mainly WW2, Korea and Vietnam. They even have a cobra on the 2nd floor/roof.
Great gun battery turned war museum right on the Waikiki beach. And it's free. Mostly focused on WW2. Couple of tanks outside and a cobra chopper upstairs. Lots of small arms and ww2 gear.
This place had more than I expected. Some great, enlightening stories about local hero's that I really appreciated. Be sure and visit the 2nd floor and read about some of the sacrifices that local Distinguished Service Cross recipients made. Lots of information available if you make the time to read about it.
