U S S Arizona Memorial - Review
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, Honolulu Reviews
A truly humbling experience. We visited in 2012. Back then we noticed the structure needed attention like so many of our nations monuments. Its an experience every child needs to see in person. Seeing oil bubbling up from the depths is an irrefutable experience in human tragedy. I just hope we don't have another attack on our country and find ourselves creating yet another memorial like this one. Its incredible, but it could have been avoided. Let our military leaders be reminded of what happens when we line up our most valued assets for a foreign influence to hit with ease.
A fitting tribute to the men and women lost during the first American battle of the Second World War and the catalyst for the USA's entrance into the war. The site has a number of interesting features: it is where the boat tours of the Arizona Memorial originate from; the anchor of the USS Arizona is on display; a very good film depicting the events leading up to the Japanese attack, the battle itself and the devastation and consequences of its aftermath; a walk-through museum displaying all things Pearl Harbor; relics of the battle are displayed through out the grounds; a gift shop; and an amazing tribute to the boats and crews of the submariner service that served in the Pacific theater through out the war. Admission is free: but gifts, souvenirs, snacks and drinks are expensive. The site is run by the Parks service but the boats to the Arizona Memorial are operated by the Navy and there seems to be, on occasion, some communications problems. On windy days the boats won't dock at the Arizona so tourists have to settle for circling the monument. This site is a 'must see' if you visit the Hawaiian Islands and seems as popular with Japanese tourists as American. There are only 1500 tickets/day issued for the Arizona Memorial, so most days it's good to get there early.
There's a certain sacredness of the presence of this location. I found myself standing there looking out over Pearl Harbor and imagine you and tragedy Carnage noise that was probably Beyond description. It's actually amazing in my mind that anybody even came out of that alive. So many did die but more lived. Participating in the tours it was a warm day, and I can't imagine the clothes quarters that these sailors lived in in this staggering Heat. I imagine the smells, the tempers, more importantly the comradery that would have these young man serve their country at the commands have their government right or wrong and be willing to do so even to giving their lives. Inspiring place a must-see.
Incredible place and a place of incredible importance to our nation as a whole. It is well worth the trip and if you are able to get going very early there are free tickets available at the gate. I also encourage you to use their free luggage and valuables service to avoid having your stuff stolen... The parking lots are pretty well monitored but I guess there has been a lot of break-ins...
Going to Pearl Harbor has long been a lifelong goal of mine. It was a very beautiful, well organized site. I was very emotional during my visit. I was very disappointed that we could not walk on the Arizonia Memorial, but I understand that the dock has to be repaired. One word of advice. Pearl Harbor is a site of great loss for many people. It's not a park. People died here. Don't go if you can't show respect. Teach your kids about sacrifice. Please don't be disrespectful. Go to the beach if you want to laugh and play. Pearl is not the place for that.
