Fly Through History at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor
Dec. 7, 1941, is a day that will live in infamy in the American spirit. On that day the United States was drawn into World War II when Japanese pilots launched a surprise air raid at Pearl Harbor.

From the moment one enters the doors at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor on Ford Island, the events of that day come into sharp focus. The floor is covered by a map of Pearl Harbor and strung from the ceiling are scaled replicas of the Japanese planes that dropped fatal bombs, sinking forever the USS Arizona and USS Utah.

Past the lobby, guests enter a time warp by traveling down a hallway rich with historic displays and pictures of Waikiki when there were still only two hotels: The Moana and Royal Hawaiian, on the beach. At the end of the hall visitors are immediately faced with beautifully maintained vintage airplanes, several of which were in flight on that December morning, including the Mitsubishi Zero.
