Arizona, Missouri in one day? Anything else at Pearl Harbor?

We will be on Oahu for a week, and we have a car. We want to see the Arizona Memorial and the Missouri. What is the best day and time of day to visit the Memorials (i.e., little or no lines)

Is there anything else at Pearl Harbor worth seeing?

Thanks,

There is lots to see at Pearl Harbour. We got there early and stayed till close and still didnt see it all. We did the Arizona, Missouri, Bowfin (submarine) and the air museum. You have to get on a bus to go to the Missouri and the air Museum. There were other exhibits we rushed through and one or two we did not get to at all. We spent a long time on the Missouri as my boys explored every nook and cranny and it is a big ship. A great, memorable, moving day.

You can now get your free tickets for the USS Arizona Memorial on line. They do charge a 1.50 processing fee per ticket. You need to be there an hour before your tour time or they will give the tickets to walk ups. Sure better than standing in line and perhaps not getting to tour the Memorial.

You can get tickets for the Missouri and Bowfin while you are waiting for your tour to the Arizona.

The Air Museum, USS Missouri, and the USS Utah Memorial are on Ford Island. Access is controlled, and you must take a tour. Worth doing. You will also see the original airfield control tower which I found interesting. Bullet holes and other combat damage are evident.
