This steel and concrete structure was constructed as a coastal artillery installation in 1911. It sits unobtrusively in the middle of a lush beachfront park in Waikiki. The fort's Battery Randolph has been converted to an exhibit hall that chronicles the Army's past in Hawai'i. The place is full of interesting exhibits.
Each exhibit,which were many,was explained in easy to understand detail; not only would I go there again, but I'd also recommend it to anyone with an interest in Hawaiian history in general, as well as just military history. I'm not sure I had a favorite exhibit, as they were all good, but I had a particular interest in the WW II exhibits, particularly about the 442nd regiment of Japenese/Hawaiian American soldiers. I also liked the store. I'm trying to find those Hawaiian shirts with the planes/propellers on them...dark shirts with darker images on them. I can't seem to find them anywhere else.
One of the best war museums anywhere. Great location, easy bus access. Rivals Duxford museum. A must see if you're interested in history. Learn things mainland US history didn't teachd about WWII from the island's perspective, envolvement and loss.
