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.

Wonderful place to emerse yourself in historical scenery and pay your respects. Feel free to roam and explore the various exhibits. There are many stunning monuments throughout the harbor. Great place for tourists and families. Neat gift shop. I highly recommend checking out the USS Arizona memorial. Includes a short 20-30min video before boarding that summarizes the tragic events that took place at Pearl harbor. The memorial itself can get rather crowded but visitors cycle out every 15 minutes. It's a fun boat ride with a stellar view of the harbor, and also serves as a hauntingly beautiful memorial/burial ground for those who lost their lives. Please be respectful and considerate of others while taking photos.
Very well done monument. I would recommend buying tickets in advance. If not be prepared to wait. We got there at 620 before they opened at 7 and we got in for the 730 tour but others who arrived later had to wait significantly longer. Those who arrived at 645 waited a long time. The exhibit itself is well done and would Def recommend visiting. Wear sunscreen and bring water.
A great American landmark that should be experienced by all. I found myself in awe of the sacrifice of those who seek to protect our freedoms and can't imagine the heartache their families endured. The facilities are clean and user friendly. The National Park Service staff were very knowledgeable and pleasant to interact with. The gift shop is expensive (but aren't they all).
Everyone I knew that came to Hawaii always told me I needed to experience this for myself. In a sense I wasn't too thrilled of coming here because of the history it has. When I got here it really is nostalgic and Beyond imaginable. I don't regret one bit of this experience I do want to come back to see some of the parts I didn't have a chance to. Once you are looking below where the Arizona sits, you will get a Feeling that no one can explain but experiencing it for yourself.
The National Park Service does a magnificent job in presenting relics of World War II for those of us to look at and admire and appreciate the sacrifice our country's men and women made in that conflict. The entire area is beautifully laid out, and the tour guides are extremely courteous and helpful. To take time to walk upon the deck of the USS Missouri, and to take the boat over to the Arizona Memorial, are privileges indeed. We've done it before, we did it this past June, and we will do it again when we return to that beautiful state in the future.
