Pacific Aviation Museum


Pacific Aviation MuseumThe Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor on historic Ford Island occupies World War II-era hangars that still bear the scars of our nation’s first aviation battlefield. It’s the newest attraction among the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites and a must visit for aviation and history enthusiasts.

The son of a naval aviator (who flew the type of airplane shown above, the wonderful Douglas SBD dive bomber), I have visited the museum and liked it very much.  Not only are the exhibits interesting and informative, but their gift shop is very well stocked with many good items, particularly books.  Can’t have too many books about airplanes!
