Afterward, a US Navy boat shuttles you to the USS Arizona Memorial.

After paying your respects on the memorial, travel to Ford Island for a visit to the Pacific Aviation Museum. Your exploration starts at the theater at the entrance to Hanger 37. Here you’re shown a brief film before continuing into the hanger to see exhibits including a Japanese Zero fighter plane and an American P-40 identical to those that managed to get airborne on the morning of the attack. Hanger 79 features Korean War-era fighter planes from both sides of the conflict. This doors of Hanger 79 still bear bullet holes made by Japanese fighters during the Pearl Harbor attack.

    We were on a tour from Waikiki. The guide is very thorough, organized and informative. Good opportunity for history education for the kids. Display in the museum is wonderful. The videos are moving. USS Arizona Memorial is important part of the visit. Impressed with facilities- including theater, gift shop, exhibits, simulators- cafe and bathrooms even clean and nice. Definitely recommend!

    The combination of great staff and outstanding artifacts in these historic hangers can’t be surpassed. The planes being serviced where the were serviced while world history was made pulls together objects, story and place together like no other museum. This is for sure a cool experience for grown folks and kids. So much history, but so nice to see the actual planes and hear stories of the women in the war during the time.

    Ron was our guide for the Aviators Tour and I can’t say enough about his excellence as a guide. The most informative and captivating museum guide I’ve met outside of Gettysburg. He really knew his material from the big strategic picture down to small technical details that were new to me. I won’t compare this museum with others I have visited (National Museum of Naval Aviation – Pensacola, FL and USAF National Air Museum – Dayton, OH) since they are much larger. The displays here are very well done and well lighted and the aircraft are accurately restored, some of them flight worthy. Hanger 79 is a must see!

    Highlights of the tour were meeting Jerry and George, docents of the museum. Both are extremely knowledgeable about the people and the aircraft on display. George gave my wife and I an excellent review of the history of the aircraft on display and the men who piloted them. It’s easy to forget that Pearl Harbor is not just Navy, but that there’s also Hickam Air Base. The museum is a great experience, with lots of displays indoors, and great views of retired combat aircraft outdoors.

    We had a one on one tour with our guide because no one else was on our scheduled hour. Our guide was extremely friendly and had an amazing knowledge of history on famous people in aviation. Strong history lesson on early flight. This museum was a must see!!! The museum is very educational and I would highly recommend watching the short film they have available at the museum.
