The Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust Library and Archive is located on the bottom floor of the Ford Island Control Tower (Operations Building)

Our Library is open to the public, however, we are located on an active military base. If you do not have base access, you will need to park at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center ($7 parking fee) and board the Royal Star shuttle, which will bring you to our Museum – depart at the second stop. No bags larger than wallet sized are allowed on the shuttle. Military are welcome to drive directly to our Museum.

All appointments are subject to availability. A member of our team will be in contact to finalize your booking.
