This cemetery is the place to visit if you are a history buff. Up in the main halls are huge marble maps of the various military battles of WWII in the Pacific. You can learn a lot about how the US won the Pacific war....More

Yes, it is open to the public. It is a National Cemetery.
Can one purchase Flowers to place at a grave site at the cemetery itself? If not, does anyone know if there are any flower stops close by? Regards

There are numerous flower shops that are right down the road in Chinatown that has beautiful flower arrangements. Safeway is also down the street at the corner of King and Pali. Nothing is sold on site.
