This is a whole day trip if you wish to see all of the attractions. We took public transport from Waikiki on bus 42 and it took about an hour to arrive. The bus-stop is right out front of the museum. We arrived at about eight-thirty, around mid-morning it starts to get extremely busy. The Arizona tour is very moving and the movie gives a lot of history. Some of the static displays are a bit confronting but they really give you an idea of the horror that was endured. The tour of the USS Missouri was very fascinating, our guide was extremely knowledgable. The Pacific Aviation Museum is another attraction you can visit, spread over 2 hangars. Most of the exhibits you can get close enough to touch but not enter. The flight simulators are a bit dated so don't get too excited. Definitely worth seeing as much of the whole complex as you can.

A must. Get the Pearl Harbor Passport, which gives you access to all the memorials and includes individual audio guides. $50.00 for adults, $30.00 for kids.

We took one of the huge Robert's buses, and there were only about 16 of us. It is well worth spending a full day there, and I especially enjoyed going through the submarine and visiting the aviation museums. By all means order the "lunch", for it includes reserved seating in the cafeteria and table service.

Once your there, it's indescribable. You think you know what to expect, but you can't fully comprehend it until you're standing there. We made a day of Peal Harbor, with our Arizona tour coming at noon. Unfortunately, due to high winds mid-day, the Admiral closed the harbor after we had watched the film, so we had to come back another day to see the Memorial. It was frustrating, but ok, we finished out the rest of the sights at the Harbor. The Arizona is free, but due to the popularity of it, you can't spend much time at the Memorial. Get their early (6-6:30am) to wait for limited tickets as its first come first serve). On our return visit, we were allotted roughly 15 minutes at the Memorial, if you count the boat ride there and back. That was disheartening as you could definitely stay longer. The movie and museum were great at filling in gaps and perspectives from all sides, and they taught us a few things that school textbooks don't teach. It's a must see.
