America's WWII Battlefield

Spanning two historic WWII-era hangars filled with aircraft, exhibits, and artifacts of the men and women who gave their lives for freedom, and the newly restored Ford Island Control Tower, Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum offers a can't-miss stop on your pilgrimage to Pearl Harbor.

General Admission includes access to both historic hangars and outdoor exhibits. Reserve your Top of the Tower Tour to travel 168 feet into the skies above Pearl Harbor in the Ford Island Control Tower and immerse yourself in the December 7, 1941 attack.

Hangar 37

Housed in an authentic World War II-era hangar, Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum’s Hangar 37 is home to the artifacts from our collection that tell the story of America’s involvement in World War II from the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor to the Battle of Midway and beyond.

Hangar 79

Hangar 79 picks up where the story in Hangar 37 leaves off, documenting the rise of American air superiority that was established in World War II and continued to climb in subsequent decades in the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Gulf Wars.

The Raytheon Pavilion & Outdoor Exhibits

The Raytheon Pavilion is a permanent pavilion opened at the Museum in 2016, with the intention of providing exposure to national and international traveling exhibits as experienced through the lens of American history.




Take to the skies in Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum’s state-of-the-art 360-degree flight simulators and experience aviation like never before. Our Fighter Ace 360 Flight Simulators can roll, somersault, spin and loop as you take the controls.
