“A great review of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

There is lots to do at Pearl Harbor, the Arizona Memorial, the Bowfin submarine tour, the Battleship Missouri. Make it a point to visit, this is definitely something you should not miss on your visit to Oahu. The Arizona Memorial is free, there is a charge for the Bowfin and Missouri.

“USS Arizona tickets were out at 7.15 am”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I am not a tour bus fan and booked our own day trip from Maui with Adventuremaui.com with first flight in the am and rental car. I was told that everybody had to stay in line and chances for tickets are same for everyone. But a light should have come on when they suggested that I might want to make reservations on a website that is always booked out or not available. Don't get me wrong, the trip was great and the memorial is really touching and awesome even without the trip to the Arizona. But you are better of going with an organized tour from Maui, if you want to visit the USS Arizona memorial. The tours did not wait in line and had their tickets in advance. A park employee told me that the tours have this all booked up and make the reservations months in advance, for a memorial that is supposed to be free. We also talked to people who had just booked the day trip that week and they also got on the Arizona and all the other exhibitions, but they didn't leave Maui until 8.30 am. We had to get up at 4 am to get to our first flight to Honolulu. I would hate to see this happening to a veteran who really needs to visit this!

“Great Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Caught the 42 bus and were concerned that we didn't have tickets but still worth doing as the other museums were very good. The bus took 45mm from Ala Mona centre which was pretty good and cost 2.50. I would recommend booking ahead to get tickets to the memorial and then catch the bus to save big dollars.

“Pearl Harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Very interesting and truly touching experience. I didn't really know much of the history of what happened at Pearl Harbor but the informative and interesting displays were amazing. Well worth a visit.
