Pearl Harbor Video
Among the fascinating sites to see at Pearl Harbor, one of the newest is the Pacific Aviation Museum. Located on Ford Island, the museum is spread over two hangers and for many, is the highlight of their day at Pearl Harbor. Your tour begins with a visit to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, where you can explore the museums “Road to War” and Attack!”
After watching a short film about the attack, board a US Navy shuttle boat to the USS Arizona Memorial, built over the wreckage of the fallen battleship. Pay your respects in the Shrine Room, where the names of the Arizona’s fallen are etched in marble.
After your time on the memorial, you’re taken to Ford Island and the Pacific Aviation Museum. As you arrive, you’re greeted with the iconic red-and-white Ford Island Control Tower. Your museum visit begins in Hanger 37, with a brief film. Afterward, explore the exhibits including an actual Japanese Zero fighter plane. Next, visit Hanger 79 and its Korean War-era fighter planes. Be sure to look for the bullet holes in the glass of the hanger doors, a reminder of the devastation of the morning of December 7, 1941.
As you return to Waikiki, a drive through the National Cemetery of the Pacific, located in Puawaina (Punchbowl) Crater, lets you pay respects to the thousands of military members who found their final resting place in this serene location. Continue with a drive through historic downtown Honolulu, seeing the Iolani Palace, King Kamehameha Statue, and Kawaiahou Church. Expert narration is given throughout this family-friendly tour that offers something for everyone!
