US Army Museum of Hawaii, Honolulu

4.5
#6 of 22 in Museums in Honolulu
Set inside one of Oahu's once-vital coastal artillery installations, US Army Museum of Hawaii provides a military history of the islands and U.S. operations in the Asia-Pacific region. The exhibits deal with American involvement in Korea, Vietnam, and the Pacific Theater of World War II, as well as Hawaii's military tradition since ancient times. You'll find that the exhibits offer audio-visual experiences--photos, videos, and sound effects--in additional to displays of military hardware such as tanks, guns, and traditional Hawaiian feudal weapons. Don't miss the Gallery of Heroes, a special section dedicated to recipients of the Medal of Honor and other distinguished decorations.

  • A rather nondescript but surprisingly well done museum. It is a converted Naval gun bunker and just this conversion alone makes it an interesting visit. Admission is free and there are plenty of exhibits of the local Hawaiian history especially of the local Japanese population's contributions. Well worth seeing especially with the price!
  • Very quaint and informative museum that covers the basic history of the Hawaiian islands, the Vietnam war & the Korean war and quite a bit of info of the Pacific theatre in ww2. Was a very cool experience, made all the better by the fact that this place is completely free! Well worth a visit if you like history
