About U S S Arizona Memorial, Honolulu
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.

U S S Arizona Memorial, Honolulu Reviews - Write a Review
Very moving. Ordered tickets way in advance on the National Park Service website (They're very inexpensive). Check-in at the ticket counter to pick up your tickets. You'll see a short movie & then take a boat to the memorial & back. After visiting the memorial, there's lots of other stuff to see, including the USS Missouri, a WW2 sub, & lots of displays. We were at the park for about 3 hours.
Showed up at 0730 to get our free tickets to see the Arizona and when we arrived the ticket we were handed said 1015. So naturally we had some time to kill... off to the museums. Had just enough time to do an audio tour of USS Bowfin and walk through the museums. Our time came and into the theater we went. Movie gives a great overview of events and timelines while setting the stage for your visit. The Park Service, Introduction Movie and Navy Personnel did a fine job while we were there, absolutely no complaints. I always recommend memorials while traveling and this one is no different. Worth a visit.
It is emotional to watch the movie then visit the WW II Valor Memorial. In memory of 1,177 who died in Pearl Harbor, we are grateful for your service and sacrifice. The place is serene and sacred groundwater for those who died. You are not forgotten.
The history here causes visitors to stop and consider the lives lost during the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It's a sobering thought. With free entry to the first ~1300 people, there can be a line of people before it opens at 07:00. We got there at 06:30 and the line was already to the sidewalk. However, we still managed to get on the first tour of the day of the Arizona. Fantastic experience for anyone interested in historical museums and information you cannot get anywhere else.
Great experience!! Highly recommend visiting if you are in the area. Free admission. $4 to store your bags. Definitely check out the very brief movie (less than 10 mins) .
