The tour guide was very informative and it was evident he loves the history and meaning behind this memorial. We continued on with the self guided tour and was able to explore a good portion of the ship. The exhibits were well kept. I enjoyed reading about the history. The view of the USS Arizona Memorial from the ship is... More

This was very interesting and quite moving. A must do when visiting Oahu. We did it as a bus tour and found it was a heat way to experience it.

Brilliant tour, so informative. My son and I learnt so much on this tour with the tour staff which is included in your entry fee. Take the live tour. You will not be disappointed if you like naval history.

Definitely worth walking through. Powerful to stand where history was made. Fascinating at the environment that our military lived and almost inconceivable how they did it for long periods of time. Can walk through the ship at your leisure although there is a host in the beginning to give history highlights. Top wooden deck was interesting as that was not... More

It would be hard to believe that anyone comes to Honolulu without making a visit to Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial. It is very moving and beautifully executed. The exhibits leading up to the trip to the Arizona are informative. They are well done and even have some comic relief to break the tension of the history. The Arizona... More

Now here is one I really enjoyed! It was part of our "Pearl Harbour Package" and I think it really was well worth it. I came out of it well educated on its role in World War II (its where the documents that ended the war in the far east were signed) as well as its subsequent tours up to... More

The USS Missouri is located near the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor. The USS Missouri and the USS Arizona bookends of the WW Ii War in the Pacific story. The battle ship is massive. Take the short tour and then explore the ship. It is worth the time. A shuttle bus takes visitors from the USS Arizona to the USS... More

its a publicly funded tourist attraction so keep going and pay for a piece of history that keeps us free and never forget what the cost of that freedom is. the ship has a lot of open areas to see back in time to see what a working battleship looked like and what life was like on it. much bigger...
