At Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum, we have the honor of stewarding America’s first aviation battlefield of World War II, sharing the artifacts, personal stories, and impact and response to the December 7, 1941, attack and the Pacific region battles that followed. We honor those who defend our freedom so we might educate and inspire future generations.

Beyond our reputation as TripAdvisor’s “Hawaii’s #1 Historical Spot Worth Traveling For,” Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum aims to be a community and educational resource for our local schools and families.

Our culture is built on collaboration, trust, mutual respect, hard work and a passion for history, museums and airplanes. We embrace change and the opportunity it brings, and are committed to growing our world class staff.
