About Hangar 37:
Featuring authentic and carefully restored aircraft from both the United States and Japanese forces, the remarkable story of the Niihau Incident, a special Battle of Midway exhibit, a B-25B Mitchell U.S. bomber immortalized in the retelling of the Doolittle Raid in the classic film “Pearl Harbor,” and the Stearman N2S-3 in which former United States President George H.W. Bush completed part of his solo qualifications, Hangar 37 sheds new light on the “day that will live in infamy” and marks the beginning of the story that launched America into World War II, a global conflict that shaped our world today.
In addition to our stunning exhibits, Hangar 37 is home to our Fighter Ace 360 Flight Simulators, two new simulators with 360-degree motion across two axes for a heart thumping dogfight across Pacific waters. Guests also enjoy browsing in our Gift Shop or enjoying a meal at Laniakea Cafe, the only dine-in restaurant at Pearl Harbor, and the only place to enjoy beer or wine during your visit to the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites.
About Hangar 79:
This 80,000 square foot maintenance and engine repair facility also withstood the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, as evidenced by the blue glass windows riddled with bullet holes left by the battle. During World War II it was a maintenance and engine repair facility, filled with fighters, bombers and patrol aircraft that were based in Pearl Harbor or en route to the front lines.
Hangar 79 is the proud home of The Shealy Restoration Shop, a genuine aircraft restoration shop that brings the aircraft of decades past back to life. The Shealy Restoration Shop is filled with an array of vintage aircraft awaiting preparation for future display, including the legendary B-17 Swamp Ghost.
About Raytheon Pavilion:
The Raytheon Pavilion, neighbored by our outdoor collection of historic and modern helicopters, stands between Hangars 37 and 79, offering visitors to the Museum an inspired and ever-changing roster of experiences with traveling exhibits covering everything from the future of aviation to the heroes of World War II.
