Aloha and Welcome ...

to a most unusual glimpse into Hawai'i's past!

Helicopters, tanks, guns now silenced, and vacant bunkers welcome you to the U.S. Army Museum of Hawai`i. Once a bastion built to protect Hawai'i from invading forces, the structure now houses a Museum that tells the military story of Hawai'i, from ancient times to the Gulf War and the War in Iraq. Each of these hostilities is covered graphically in separate displays with photographs and sound effect creating a real "you were there" experience.

Featured Exhibits

The General Eric K. Shinseki Exhibit

This popular and permanent display is the only exhibit of its kind, showcasing General Shinseki's decorated military career. Originally from the island of Kaua'i, General Shinseki is the first Japanese-American soldier to become the Chief of Staff of the United States Army.
