  • A very nice site to visit and appreciate our history at Pearl Harbor! I enjoyed every site here, and I highly recommend it. Ensure you plan a full day, as there is so much to see and fo. It is great for families with children also. There are food courts and snack shops.

  • The USS bowfin is another way to understand some of what are service people went through to defend our country. Having an opportunity to actually walk through the tight quarters and try to imagine the living conditions these men endured in defense of our freedom is humbling. With all of today's modern conveniences to observe this window into the past was quite educational. Thanks to all those that served.

  • This was so fun!! Where else can you climb into a submarine while it is at least partially submerged in the water?! Very fascinating!! I would do this again in a heartbeat the next time I have the opportunity to go to Hawaii. It definitely gives you the sense that you are in a compact submarine on a long venture in the ocean!

  • Clean, well organized war museum. Both US and foreign war machinery is on display. Launch point for the Arizona memorial tour.

  • A great place to see history. Audiotours are provided and very informative. Being able to walk through a submarine really brought the ideas home to my kids. If you are 6' or taller, watch your head when below decks!! When you are at the aft, you can look across Pearl Harbor and see the USS Arizona Memorial and the USS Missouri.
