The Pearl Harbor site should be included on everyone's Itinerary. There are 4 separate exhibits which I found quite confusing when doing my research - USS Arizona, USS Bowfin (Submarine), South Pacific Aviation Museum and the USS Missouri Battleship where you can stand on the spot on the deck where the World War 2 Peace Treaty was signed! You can... More

Once you get into the National Park (either showing up at 7 am to snag free ticket, or purchasing online 24 hrs in advance) make sure you don't skip over this fascinating experience. As you walk through the cramped quarters and work areas inside the sub, you can't help but imagine what it would be like to live in a... More

We loved being able to see the inside of the submarine. The free audio tour was phenomenal and definitely as must do.

You get to go inside a sub to see how the sailors lived while at sea. Learn how it is operated. A great experience.

When you think of WWII and the Navy, most think of the big boys atop the waves... here you learn about the little guys who sent a LOT of the enemy big boys to the bottom. Talk about claustophobic!! Tiny living areas is putting it MILDLY. I see why they would be so happy to see land after floating in... More

This is the 5th sub from wars gone by that I have toured and its still amazing to me !. The guts it took to go on these warships for combat tours will never fail to amaze. I am so glad that they have been able to preserve some of these around the country. If in Hawaii at the Arizona... More

This is a must see. A great experience and very interesting overall. It was amazing to see the close quarters of those on board. And there is nothing to dislike.

This decommissioned submarine was interesting, but it's just a submarine...if you've seen one before, there are far more interesting things to see at this site

Completely fascinating tour, but was happy to be out! It is a tight squeeze and I am not a large person. It was interesting to go through the whole sub and try and image living there for much less underwater. I would highly recommend a visit here!
