One of many colorful murals that greet visitors as they enter our gallery in Hangar 37. They depict pre- WWII Hawaii, a time when tourists started arriving by sea and air to enjoy these tropical islands for the very first time.

This day in aviation history (April 16, 1949): first flight of the Lockheed YF-94A. Developed from the F-80 Shooting Star, this was the United States Air Force's first jet-powered all-weather interceptor and the first production aircraft powered by an afterburner. Test pilot Tony LeVier and flight test engineer Glenn Fulkerson took off and landed the prototype at Van Nuys Airport in California.

Hangar 79 is full of busy Hangar Owls! The stairs to the B-52E are being finished as we speak. The Stratofortress nose cone stands proud outside of Hangar 79 and soon you can stand level with the pilot seat. You'll be able to see the advanced avionics that made their debut in this craft in October 1957.

This day in Hawaii aviation history (March 20, 1937): aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart ground looped her Lockheed Electra on Ford Island, ending her first attempt to fly around the world. The right landing gear collapsed leaving the aircraft heavily damaged. More in Hangar 37's Amelia Earhart exhibit and on our blog: http://ow.ly/KBRcE

Sunsets on Ford Island are magical. Here is our McDonnell Douglas F-4C Phantom II outside of Hangar 79 during the final minutes of "magic hour."

This day in aviation history (April 29, 1918): "Fast Eddie" Rickenbacker shot down his first airplane. He downed 26 enemy aircraft that year on his way to becoming the United States' leading ace of WWI. The legendary aviator is shown here in his SPAD S.XIII fighter.

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk was one of the integral parts of the cooperative WWII efforts of China and America in the 1940's. The American Volunteer Group, along with their iconic P-40's, would later become known as the Flying Tigers.
You can get up close with two of these historic aircraft here at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor. We have one in our entry hangar, Hangar 37, and there is a liviried one watching over the newly erected National Memories exhibit in Hangar 79.

New exhibit in Hangar 79 until July 31st: "National Memories." These photographs celebrate a bond, forged in the heat of battle, that developed between Americans and Chinese during WWII. Our Curtiss P-40 Warhawk represents the Flying Tigers, a centerpiece of that historic relationship. More info here: http://ow.ly/KBvCf

DO NOT have a party at this place!!! The museum is actually a cool place on the inside, which is too bad because the customer service there is absolutely HORRIBLE!!! We just had our son's 1st birthday at the museum and it was a nightmare for my husband and I. They were unorganized, unhelpful, our magician and photo ppl could not get access onto base, the coordinator we were left with for the night was new and locked herself in the office crying because she could not get help, my husband had to leave the party after it started in order to drive out to another base to get our vendors access to the party, the staff did not know how to work av system, they cut the mic on our food blessing, they claimed our slide show did not work and if we could go home to get another copy after the party started, it was a nightmare for us!! We couldn't even properly greet our guests because we were running around trying to coordinate what should've been taken care of! The worst of it all is though, is that when we brought all of this to the attention of the manager and director, they were both so unprofessional, rude and actually accused us of complaining just because we wanted money back! I couldn't believe the treatment they gave us! They made all these excuses up for our problems, saying 1st it was the military's fault for not granting access on base to our vendors, then it was the vendors fault for not being able to get in, then when asked about a back up plan for handling base access they said 1 of them normally leaves to sponsor them in but they never offer us that. When I brought that up to them they said it was our fault, accusing us of "offering to leave to sponsor our vendors in" so it was our problem. They said our slide show was not formatted correctly, which is bogus because I recorded it myself and played it on 3 separate dvd players, which all worked fine! But all-in-all, the worse was just the treatment we received after bringing to the attention of the manager and director. I actually hung up on the director because he was yelling and accusatory! NO paying customer should have to deal with such awful treatment. I just cannot believe how rude, accusatory and unprofessional they were! I have never had a worse experience with a place EVER! This one is definitely an experience I would never wish on anyone! It's hard to believe such poor treatment and having to pay for a service from any business. A.W.F.U.L.!!!!!

Love this Museum. The 2nd Hangar (79) is the best part for me. It feels a little like going back in time because the structure is pretty much straight out of WWII. Plus, you can walk right up to the jets and helicopters (more added all the time). They also do cool special events like an air show of RC aircraft and "Open Cockpit" days where you can climb into some of the cockpits.

Excellent experience! I recommend this as well as the USS Arizona and the USS Missouri! If you take all three from the morning on then you should get your whole trip in one day with plenty to see! Great memories and wonderful pictures!

Went over with great expectations and was only let down somewhat. No one greeted my family of four when we entered. Found the movie theatre and started watching the movie, which starts every half hour or so. A gentleman approached us halfway through our unguided tour of the museum for our tickets. The displays are awesome and the infomation podiums are well written..Do not waste your money eating there!!! 7$ hotdogs and such. Was bummed out that is spent about 160$ and still got gouged 50cents for soda pop refills.. food low quality small portions over priced.. All this said i still might go again someday just to look at the planes.
