“Arizona Memorial”
Reviewed September 29, 2011

I had visited the memorial several times in the past but not since the new upgrades to the facility. Don't follow the advertising about cheap trips and tours as the memorial is controlled by the US Navy and is free. Make sure though that you arrive early as they close it when the grounds are full and parking is filled up. best to be there around 7AM. We went in September and there were no large crowds making it easy to actually see things we couldn't see on previous visits due to the crowds.

“Not to miss experience”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

What can one say? The history was everywhere. Enjoyed the museum and everything was easy to understand. Military personnel on hand were polite. If you go to Oahu this is a not to miss historical trip.

“Elegant, quiet, yet fun!”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

I see the memorial everyday being that my ship isn't moored to far away from it but until I actually visited it, I had no idea what I was missing. Every American should visit this piece if history at least once

“Visiting this puts the Arizona Memorial in context”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

This is where you pick up your tickets to see the Arizona Memorial. It is also where you will will watch about a 20 minute film that you must watch in order to visit the Arizona Memorial. The museum contains a lot of World War II artifacts as well as descriptions of life in Hawaii before and after the attack. The film I thought was a little bit revisionist, but that could have been me. After watching the film and and going to the museum, I had a better understanding of what the memorial was about.

I wish they had more information about the memorial itself. How it was built and the amount of fund raising that it took to get it built.
