No trip to the island of Oahu is complete without a visit to Pearl Harbor, specifically the USS Arizona memorial. There are several museum style displays, educational theater showings, and several other things to see before or after you go out to the memorial. You reach the location of the ill-fated, tragically lost Arizona via ferryboat. Once there, there is... More

Once you have your free ticket and enter the Pearl Harbor site, there are several museum areas to view either, with or without audio headsets, and an excellent theatre presentation to see before going to the Arizona Memorial by boat. It is very well maintained and the tours well coordinated. There are areas to reflect on the events of 12/7/41... More

The memorial site is very well run and maintained, and the thousands of daily visitors were moved very smoothly and efficiently through our paces (instructions, ferry, memorial, back to ferry, etc.). The memorial itself was greatly poignant, reminding me of the people who lived through it in the way I lived through 9-11 (in NYC). Definitely worth a visit.

If traveling to Hawaii take the time to plan a trip to Pearl Harbor. This touching tribute to those who lost their lives should not be missed. Be smart and plan ahead...try your best to reserve your tickets online. We requested ours 5 months in advance and still couldn't get there on our original date of choice. You will pay... More

This is a moving experience. You should prepare to spend at least three hours at this site. I liked that there are FREE tickets to this historic site if you get there early. I arrived at 6am and was the fourth person in line. It is better to go online and make your reservation, then you don't have to get... More

The museum, the knowledge of the park staff, the dedication of those volunteering their support to the site, and the available facilities make this not only the respectful moment of history it should be but allow all to do so without much trouble (from the youngest to those who need help getting around).

Was worth a look we were there when the NZ navy boats where there for Rimpac so that was a added bonus, Also the tour on the decommissioned USS Missouri (BB-63) war ship was good. We got a tour Booked for this but wasn't worth it we rushed and booked it not thinking the Tour bus driver dropped us there... More

We didn't expect to spend a full day at Pearl Harbor, but there was so much to do and see, every bit of it, worthy of our time. We arrived at 7:00 on Sunday, July 6. The first available tickets for the Arizona were for 11:00. We bought the pass that allows admission to everything, so we went to the... More
