“Always an emotional experience but a must see in Hawaii”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

First time to take elementary age children and they were touched by the tour. We arrived early (before 8 a.m.) to get tickets and were given 1:15 tour tickets. We had a car so we left and went to the North Shore for the rest of the morning and lunch and then returned. Think tour buses get earlier tickets. Be prepared to spend time in the museum or see the other attractions as you will be on the grounds a long time. You cannot bring in purses, backpacks or bags but lockers are available for storage.

“You *must* go here if visiting Honolulu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

This has to be one of the most simple yet striking memorials that I have visited. Even as a non-American visitor, it was extremely emotional and a tribute to those who died.

“Long queues.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

You need to be prepared to spend quite some time waiting here. The memorial itself is well presented with an informative videos shown before embarking the boat to view and experience the Arizona. The time spent waiting can be used to view two museums. Hire the headphones to listen to the audio presentation ( although all this is repeated in the pre Arizona video).

“Fantastic Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

Last visited 10 years ago. The new museum is terrific. Could spend the better part of a day examining all of the displays. The quality of the film presented is exceptional.
