Description:

The Pacific Aviation Museum is located at Ford Islands, an area 441 acres in the middle of Pearl Harbor purchased by the US army in 1918 and used  as an airfield for the strategic defense of Honolulu and Pearl Harbor. When the area became crowded, the army moved to a new location, leaving Ford Island for the Navy. 

Having gone through and shown many scars of war, Ford Island was considered as a National Historic Landmark. The Navy sought to preserve some historic buildings which, with the initiative and help of some Hawaiian citizens, a plan was put in motion for the creation of a world class aviation museum.

The Pacific Aviation Museum can be visited for obtaining experience and insight of aviation history in the United State. Exhibits such as B-25B like the ones used during the Doolittle raid on Japan, SBD dauntless dive bomber, F4F wildcats, are just some of the historic planes that can be seen and  which have played a major role in various wars, particularly the two World Wars.

The planes are located in various hangars that have been preserved and dates back to the 1940s. Visitor also have the opportunity to experience being behind a combat flight simulator. The museum also includes a cafe and a museum store where different items can be obtained as a souvenir. The museum often provides educational experiences to children in a flight school where the kids learn and explore the principles of flights. Throughout the year, various events are organized.
