Very interesting exhibits and video that was shot during the Pearl Harbor attack by the Japanese Zeros. The hangars contain some of the most interesting aircraft that I have ever seen. The food quality at their restaurant was also good....no need to pack a lunch. Make sure you bring a camera with a wide angle lens.

2 hours is enough but make it a half day experience to really take it in.

Knowledgable docents and good 2-hr tour. Decent restaurant. Second hangar has more modern planes, too - not just WWII. If you are stopping at the USS Missouri, get off there first - bus doesn't stop there on the way back to the visitor center.

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.
