“If your into WW2, Military and History, this is a must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you like and appreciate history, the military and state parks, this is a must see. The boat ride to the Arizona Memorial is free and informative. The memorial is quite touching. The free movie will definitely educate you. Recently remodeled with a huge visitor center, this is an experience you won't likely forget. The Arizona tour is free. For another $7 - $10, go on the Submarine Tour. You can also the battleship Missouri but plan on spending the whole day out here if you want to do all 3. Lot of history but not lots of shade. Come early, dress comfortably and remember that you cannot take your purse or bags onto The Missouri. Plan for that.

“Everyone should experience this part of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The park is set up comfortably for parking, walking and viewing the exhibits and the memorial to the USS Arizona. The audio tour is a must. You can reserve the navy launch/theater tickets online to assure being able to see it all. Park employees are knowledgeable and helpful. Completely revamped so if you have visited before 2010 you might want to visit again to see the new exhibits.

“USS Arizona & Pacific Aviation Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Fascinating and moving experience. No need to take one of the hotel tours, though. Very easy to get to and navigate around yourself, thus saving the price of guided tour. Pre-boat trip film tells you all you need to know about the history of Pearl Harbour and the Arizona Don't forget the Pacific Aviation Museum on Ford island which is also a very interesting look at the history of aviation in Hawaii.

“Even if you are not into war history, USS Arizona Memorial is a must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is one of the first places I take my friends and family when they visit Honolulu. They leave knowing a part of US and Hawaiian history and being moved by the film and the tour to the monument itself. If you are not one of the fortunate ones to receive a free film and tour ticket, the museum does an excellent job with photos, videos and memorabilia. They also have veterans who also share their personal stories on the grounds.
