Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum is located on historic Ford Island, a 441-acre island in the middle of Pearl Harbor. Moored off its shores on Sunday, December 7, 1941, were some of the largest ships of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, in addition to the dozens of patrol and scout planes that filled the hangars and airfield, all of which were targets on that fateful morning. Now a National Historic Landmark, Ford Island is quiet today but still shows the scars of war.
