The World remembers the fateful day when Pearl Harbor was attacked. It was an even that led to even more death and destruction than what it was a part of. The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center stands as a reminder of the dark day when so many soldiers unexpectedly lost their lives.
The USS Arizona, the ship that sank into the ocean taking with it several brave lives still remains there and the memorial serves as homage to those souls. Located in the World War 2 National Monument in the Pacific, the Arizona memorial and all the sites at the historic Pearl Harbor are certainly worth seeing.
The place may be very somber but it invokes history in such a powerful way, it is a site that must be visited in Honolulu. You can access it by boat through the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. USS Missouri which was the Arizona’s sister ship and a powerful symbol for the Americans also stands close by and is another sight to see here. The visitor center has several exhibits and displays that are quite touching as well. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Honolulu itinerary 4 days.

U S S Arizona Memorial Reviews & Ratings
A great place !! And since long time this place was in my bucket list which got ticked. And I am really happy and excited to share my view about this place. It’s super awesome. We visited on a fresh morning in April. First we strolled around in the area and saw some memorial exhibits while we were waiting for the Pearl Harbor documentary. Then we entered the auditorium and watched the informative documentary. Superb experience!! Then directly from there we were taken on a cruise ship/boat, which took us to see the actual Pearl Harbor Memorial Building and other war ships nearby. On the ship also there was a guide giving us detailed information about the locations. It was a very thrilling and patriotic experience. Highly recommended if you are in Hawaii. A must visit place. Thanks so much!!
Took a Tour Bus here so couldn't see everything that is here but I did see the Arizona Memorial and for me it was very moving and emotional. I had 2 Uncle's that were there that day and it meant a lot to me to visit this site when I had the chance. I heard tickets may be hard to get if not ordered ahead of time that's why we did the tour Bus are Driver was easy going and told some stories about the Local Hawaiian people point of view on this attack. All in All I recommend a visit if you are there for the right reasons it's not a amusement park. It's a Memorial to the Service Men who died that day.
Words and reputation cannot prepare you for this beautiful, solemn experience. Show up early in the morning, as tickets are limited, but this is definitely one of the most surreal, emotional memorials I've visited. There park rangers and sailors do an excellent job of making sure everything runs smoothly and efficiently while making sure everyone has time to take it in fully without feeling rushed.
It was such a historic place to visit. The video prior to boarding the boat to the memorial was an excellent recap of the beginning of the war. We were fortunate the memorial had just undergone some maintenance and had reopened for visitors. In one day we saw the beginning if the war with all of the memorials and the end of the war with the Mighty Mo tour. It was quite memorable.
It is great. But it will take you at least 4-5 hours if you add any side tour. We added the USS Missouri and we really enjoyed it. However, time went by really fast up there. We also did the USS Arizona memorial which is really moving. Totally worth it.
