“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

The memorial is quite moving. It is good that you can look into the sea and see life amongst the wreck.

“Aussies' loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Loved the history of the whole place. Interesting to see on board a naval ship too. Picked up from our hotel by bus, and the bus driver was informative and a good guide

“A must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We happened to be there two days before the anniversary of Pearl Harbor. It was surreal and we are so glade that we came. I think anyone visiting Oahu should make this their first stop. Just make sure you reserve your ticket on reserve america's website. This will save you time and a headache. Also do yourself a favor and show up early. The crowds can be overwhelming

“Worth the time and effort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This was my 5th trip to Oahu and I finally made it to the Arizona Memorial. Totally worth the time. It doesn't look like much from the exterior, but the interior is architecturally and artistically amazing. Very nicely executed, and I'm so glad I finally made the effort to see it this time. Not a kid-friendly type of experience, so I'd leave them on the beach and make this an adults only visit. Most kids would just be bored out of their minds, and in fact, there were very few if any children to be seen at this Park Service-managed site.
