Give yourself sufficient time to see all the exhibits, at least two hours.

Excellent discount for this exhibit. It was more emotional and educational than I thought it would be. Also, get there early if you want to do the other exhibits like the USS Arizona etc...

Ask for the headset at the admission desk. They are free and really add to the tour.

Use Siri to find the Arizona Memorial parking lot. That's where you pick up the shuttle and the path is a little confusing.

The museum itself was FANTASTIC! Our 4yo loved it! Amazed at everything! Clearing baggage to get in with our 9mo was a hassle. Everything he needed was put inside a plastic bag provided which was very inconvenient to carry around while we toured.

Give yourself a couple hours at least, if you're interested in WW2 history and airplanes. Take the free self-guided audio tour equipment. I learned a ton through that! The second hangar is a little hard to follow, so don't try to follow in numerical order. :) Loved this place! Kids will enjoy it, but they won't have the attention span to really enjoy each exhibit.

Very good deal & was a positive experience. My boys enjoyed it. Don't forget to print out the free flight simulator coupon on the website.

We toured the Bowfin Submarine first, then the USS Missouri, and finally the Aviation Museum. Enjoyed all three, probably the Missouri the most, but all good. The main building is air-conditioned, mostly WWII focus, the second hangar is not, but it's worth a short walk even in the heat to see the airplanes focusing more on Korean War era. Lots of planes parked outside the second hangar too, but it was too hot to see much and we were tired and ready to go. Our tip -- Fill out a coupon on the brochure so your kid(s) can do the flight simulator for free. Turn in your form and schedule a time at the entrance to the first building.

From Our Editors

The servicemen of Pearl Harbor's naval base were taking some much-needed R&R between early-morning repairs inside Hangar 37 when suddenly they heard a buzzing overhead. With the humming of their own planes and battleships periodically filling the air, this rapidly approaching sound wasn't foreign to their ears, but this instance proved to be drastically different. Thunderous explosions soon overtook Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona struggled to stay afloat as the Imperial Japanese Navy delivered a surprise military strike, which resulted in one of the most devastating attacks on American soil. With a mission to preserve the history of this tragic event, Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor opened that very same hangar to the public, hundreds of feet from where ships burned and men courageously fought more than 70 years ago.

Hangar 37's 42,000-square-foot space currently houses many of the museum's artifacts, which include a World War II–era B-25B bomber, Japanese Zero, and naval planes such as the SBD Dauntless. Also open to the public, Hangar 79 displays the actual bullet holes that pierced its windows during the attack, while an authentic WWII maintenance shop contains an exhibit that explains how planes ran on Lucky Strike cigarette materials. Visitors can experience the museum's ever-evolving collection of exhibits––which has included segments dedicated to the Korean War's MiG Alley and the Flying Tigers––through guided tours in both hangars and submerse themselves in the virtual world of the museum's combat flight simulator.
