A step into the Pacific Northwest Naval Air Museum is a step back in history to see how a small town was caught up in the turmoil of WWII. The building of a Naval Air Station brought one of the war's most unique and well know aircraft, the PBY Catalina, to the shores of beautiful Whidbey Island. Typical of nearly a dozen small towns in the Pacific Northwest, Oak Harbor hosts the only remaining Naval Air Station out of many built during WWII. Here you can see and touch a PBY-5A that actually flew from NAS Whidbey Island.

You will learn the story of the PBY and the many other aircraft that flew from NAS Whidbey as well as stories of the people who flew and maintained.them. Through interactive exhibits you can be a PBY nose turret gunner, a plane handler lifting a jet aircraft tailhook or a pilot flying on one of two aircraft simulators.

Browse through the "Ship's Store" gift shop and partake of local restaurant fare in historic downtown Oak Harbor, just walking distance away.
