A very emotional day, even as a non-American. We hadn't booked and just turned up at about 6.45 and lined up. We had a car but the bus ride is around $2.50. The memorial is free and the gates open at 7.30 and it's quite a long line up by then. You can't take any bags in so leave them... More

This is one stop everyone must make when in Hawaii. Significant and moving and especially important for the younger generations who have no personal attachment to this part of our history. Be sure to get advance reservations to assure a time slot. If you do not, it can be very difficult.

To understand what the world war is this one of the most important spots in the world after Gallipoli. Give a moment of respect to all the soldiers in the world who lost their lives for their countries and try to understand what war really means.

This was a really great this to see and experience. The tickets are free but you have to get there early. We arrived at 0630 for an opening time of 0700. Our tickets allowed access at 0930. But the wait was well worth it. The Arizona is part of other things to see including the USS Missouri and the USS... More

Visiting Pearl Harbor was at the top of my list of things to do in Hawaii, and I found the USS Arizona Memorial to be a very fitting tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice on December 7, 1941.

Amazing site, definitely not to be missed. We got lucky and showed up without advanced reservations and only waited 20 minutes. Go early, it fills up quickly.

Make sure to get figure out how you will have your tickets to see the short documentary and then take the boat ride over well in advance of making the trip. You can get tickets the day of, but you will need to be in line early. A number of tour companies will book trips and drive you from Honolulu;... More

This was an experience that is hard to put into words! The short video before you go to the memorial is very good to put you in the right perspective! We were very moved by the memorial!

very educational. but you are only given a tour time when you arrive so you could wait hours for your tour to start. there are things to see and read but not enough to fill the 2 hours we had to wait

I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was very enjoyable and informative. Started by watching a film leading up to Pear Harbour events and the attack, followed by a very short boat trip to the actual memorial. This was very moving. A must see if you are visiting Honolulu.
