“Very nice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

Get there early. We took the bus, and did not have to worry about parking. I left the brochure they handed out. It was nice. But after I read it, it was time to recycle.

“Moving!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

Even my 12 year old who is quickly bored by history was moved by the actual memorial. Can't say that he liked the background information in the museums before the boat trip. It was our second trip but the kids were much younger when we last saw it and I wanted to make sure that they remember it. A must see for the historical significance alone.

“Very nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

very nice gift shop. friendly workers. the "museum" is more of a learning center. there really are very few artifcats which connote museum. But it is worth a look-see and hopefully you get tickets to go on the tour!

“Fantastic and Interesting visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

This was a great visit. Thanks to the US Parks Service for providing a great free tour.

One hint: They seem to run out of tour tickets to see the movie and go on the boat ride to the memorial quite quickly. This could have been because it is the week of Pearl Harbor Day, but my sense is it is always busy.) Even though, when I called the Memorial's office, they said they had no tickets left for the day, we still went, and magically there were a few tickets left for a later showing. Then, before we left the ticket desk, one of the workers brought back tickets someone wasn't going to use for the tour in 20 minutes. So, go no matter what- often people hand back their tickets for a variety of reasons. There may be a few left at the ticket desk and it is worth it.

Also there is a nice gift shop. I am not much into gift shops, but this is a good one for sure!
