The battery was built so well that it was unable to be torn down in the early 1970's to make way for the military's Hale Koa Hotel. The battery was turned into a museum in 1976 and begins with story of early Hawaiian warfare and covers every major military event in the Pacific theater of operations through Vietnam. The Gallery of Heroes honors Hawaii's soldiers who have received our nation's highest awards: the Medal of Honor and the Distinguished Service Cross. The Museum and the Hawaii Army Society's Museum Store are open from 9am - 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday. Audio tours are available for rent for a small fee in both English and Japanese. « less
