Description

The Pacific Aviation Museum sits on the historic Ford Island.  These World War II hangars still bear the scars of our nation's first aviation battlefield and rank as the #8 aviation attraction in the nation.  There are two hangers with planes as well as the helicopters that were used in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Panama, Afghanistan, and Iraq.  Our guides will tell stories of these aircrafts and how they were implemented in war.

Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor is a non-profit founded in 1999 to develop an aviation museum in Hawaii. Part of Senator Daniel Inouye's vision for a rebirth of Ford Island, the museum hosts a variety of aviation exhibits with a majority relating directly to the attack on Pearl Harbor and World War II. The first section of the museum, hangar 37, opened with the museum on December 7, 2006, and features much of the museum's static exhibits. The museum's hangars show damage from the attacks on Pearl Harbor from December 7, 1941.

The museum has been involved in community events ranging from preservation of historical landmarks to educational tours throughout Hawai'i. The focus devoted efforts to restoring the Ford Island control tower and signed a lease with the Navy to begin repairs. Visitors to the museum gain access via tour bus from the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites on Halawa landing. The museum has received awards for their efforts to restore historical buildings.
