Pacific Northwest Naval Air Museum
Located in downtown Oak Harbor on beautiful Whidbey Island, Washington.
To collect, preserve, and exhibit artifacts that promote understanding of the history of all naval aircraft flown from bases throughout the Pacific Northwest as well as the unique Navy-civilian community relationships throughout the region.
Visit the museum and step back in history to see how a small island town was caught up in the turmoil of WWII and the building of a Naval Air Station that brought the beloved PBY Catalina amphibious aircraft to its shores.
Explore our PBY- Catalina 5A, one of the most recognizable warbirds of World War II. See the flying boat in person as you learn about the parts, pieces, and men who made the aircraft one of the most successful, search and rescue bombers of its time!
Try it yourself! Climb into the gun turret to experience gunning on a PBY, lift a tailhook to get an idea of their weight, or wear a pair of night vision goggles to experience night vision as our troops do.
