Yes. The general public can visit Pearl Harbor for the December 7th Ceremony. The ceremonies are different every year so you should check back if you plan to go.
Many visitors who go to the December 7th Ceremony have expressed regret because they were unable to get tickets to visit the Arizona Memorial. If you have never been to Pearl Harbor, then it might not be the best time to visit.
December 7th is a very busy day at Pearl Harbor and tickets are extremely limited. However, if you’ve been to Pearl Harbor before and don’t mind not going on the Memorial itself, it may be an interesting experience. If you want to see dignitaries, survivors, and politicians, the ceremony will be worth a return visit.
The other sites at Pearl Harbor (Battleship Missouri, Pacific Aviation Museum) operate as normal.
