Airplanes can be difficult to observe up close, loath to reveal their homemade in-flight movies and freshly striped plumage. Catch mechanical birds in a controlled environment with today’s Groupon to the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, located on Ford Island. Dedicated to preserving and celebrating the majesty of winged machines, the museum displays more than 20 aircraft and interactive exhibits in two historic hangars. The two-hour Aviator’s Tour takes guests through Hangar 79, its original bullet-riddled windows overseeing an aircraft restoration facility, and Hangar 37, which features 42,000 square feet of eye-opening dioramas, authentic planes, and a 200-seat theatre. You're also free to strap in for a ride in either the Zero or the Wildcat combat flight simulators, which faithfully re-create a pilot's take-off, landing, dog fights, and catcalls ($10 value).

  • I had a great time at the Pacific Aviation Museum. As soon as I walked in, I was enthralled by the huge satellite-photo panorama of the site and surroundings…The exhibits and the massive panoramas are huge and interesting, and my museum tour guide…was a veteran who knew all the stories and brought them to life. – RoadTripToSFO, TripAdvisor
  • It has tons of information, a great video to start things off, and has a great collection of historical planes. – Darren T., Yelp

Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor

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.
