The Flight Simulator At The Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum In Hawaii Will Take You On A Thrilling Adventure
By Megan Shute|Published February 13, 2020
With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
Nearly 80 years after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor — a day that will live in infamy as one of the most tragic attacks on United States soil, and the event that launched our great country into World War II — the base itself is one of two main bases for the U.S. Pacific Fleet, as well as a living piece of history, with several museums and memorials open to the public. And if you happen to prefer aviation to naval history, you’ll want to plan a visit to the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum. Not only will you be able to immerse yourself in history, but the museum’s flight simulator will take you on a high-flying adventure.
The Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Adult tickets are $25 and Kama’aina and military members can gain access for $15. Children ages 4 through 12 cost $12 and Kama’aina and those associated with the military have $10 tickets. Children under three years of age are free. If you do not have base access, shuttles leave the Pearl Harbor Visitors Center for Ford Island every 15 minutes from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit their website.
