If you are planning to visit Hawaii, then make sure that you pay a visit to the remarkable Pacific Aviation Museum. We offer you best tours to Pacific Aviation Museum. Present on historic Ford Island, Pearl Harbor is an active military base which you can visit with the help of shuttle bus from the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. Shuttles depart every 15 minutes from the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm daily. However, if you get in touch with us, we will make sure that all your travel arrangements are made so that you can have the best time. We will arrange you a comfortable air-conditioned transport that will take you to and from the airport.
Pacific Aviation Museum was first opened to the public in December 2006 and since then it has seen a big rise in the number of annual visitors. Its collection has grown with the same pace and since then a number of aircraft and exhibits have been added, particularly the two WWII hangars.
If you are coming to visit the Museum, you will need to board a shuttle at Ford Island which was once a former Naval Air Station and National Historic Landmark located in the middle of Pearl Harbor. When you are at the island, you can still see the 158-foot control tower, to the World War II-era hangars having the aircraft collection of the museum, signs of the attack that was launched by the Japanese Forces.
You will get the chance to watch a 12-minute film that will help you to know more about the events of December 7th 1941. Upon visiting the main exhibit area of Hangar 37, you can see the real World War II-era planes such as the Japanese Zero and a Stearman N2S-3. It is even more exciting to see the cockpit in interactive flight simulator where you can experience the virtual dogfight. We provide the assistance of friendly and experienced guides who will take you on an unforgettable guided Aviator’s Tour. You will get to know a lot about the behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of Hangar 79 and the past.
