to preserve and use the lessons of the past to inspire the achievements of tomorrow!
Funds raised at this year's Gala event will directly support the following:
* Preservation, restoration and acquisition efforts that support our stewardship of the hangars, control tower, and historic elements located on the hollowed ground of Ford Island, in the midst of Pearl Harbor, America's aviation battlefield.
* Expansion of dynamic education programs that engage students in learning experiences that both advance their academic competency in STEM courses (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and deepen their understanding of history, the values that sparked the contributions and service of our "Greatest Generation." The museum education experience inspires students of all backgrounds, preparing the for the challenges of their future.

Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum provides programming to more than 40,000 students each year. Whether the students travel to our museum on field trips (overnight programs make it possible for neighbor islands and visiting youth to participate), or welcome us into their classrooms (on Oahu, neighbor islands, the mainland and elsewhere), our trained and dedicated educators introduce students to hands-on and reflective programming designed to engage, excite, inspire, and challenge learning.
The mission of Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum is to steward America’s first aviation battlefield of World War II sharing the artifacts, personal stories, the impact and response to the December 7, 1941 attack and the Pacific region battles that followed, honoring those who have defended our freedom so we might educate and inspire future generations.
