    Would recommend this to anyone visiting Oahu, it played a big part in history and is a very moving place. The monument speaks for itself. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Oahu, it played a big part in history and is a very moving place. I want to highlight something. Elvis Presley helped pay for the monument. He held a 1961 benefit concert; it isn’t highlighted anywhere. “genesis of the ’61 concert in Hawaii occurred on December 4, 1960, when Colonel Parker read an editorial in the Los Angeles Examiner about the effort to raise funds for a memorial to the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor. It occurred to Parker that Elvis could perform a benefit concert”.

    It is worth the time to see this place and it can be very emotional. I had no idea that the population of Hawaii was 40% Japanese descent at the time, which is why sabotage was feared and therefore this affected the defensive strategy, which enabled more damage to be done. Such a moving tribute to the fallen soldiers of Pearl Harbor. We brought our 4 boys ranging from 9 to 15 and they all loved this place of history.

    We toured the USS Arizona memorial, one of the ships sunk in the harbor. Prior to a short boat ride out to the site, we watched a 23 minute movie, graphically and grippingly describing the setting, the situation, the attack. When you arrive at the monument you will see, and smell the oil still coming up from the site, 75 years on!

    Take a tour here its very informative. One of the most visited tourist attraction. Despite the hoards of people, crowd management was efficient and waits minimal. A museum presents a comprehensive history of Dec. 7, 1941, the “Day of Infamy,” objectively describing all the players, U.S. politicians, military and ordinary people, Japanese royalty, military and ordinary people.

    A great tour, starting in the theatre before they take you out on the ferry to view the memorial. For those non history aficionados, the video offers a good background on what happened that fateful day. The memorial itself is a long white structure that straddles the sunken ship on which 1,100 service personnel died and are still buried. From the railing you look down through the water to the ghostly shape of the rusty hull. Sad but somehow also inspiring.

    Had been to Hawaii at least ten times before, finally got talked into going, an absolute must do, so sad ,a really weird feeling. Everything we saw at Pearl Harbor was interesting and well done. A must see on so many levels, intellectual, emotional, spiritual.

    From the pre-visit film to the boat ride over to the Monument the entire experience brings amazement to any world history buff. This was very well done and informative. A great tribute and honor to those who served and fought for the freedoms we enjoy today.

    A very well designed park with lots of informative displays. Great place to visit, if you are a history buff! This was a very moving memorial and we’re a retired vet family. It was plenty to see and do at Pearl Harbor.

    Interesting and enjoyed the movie prior to getting on the boat to go across to the USS Arizona. It was wonderful to give our children an understanding of what happened and pay our respects. It is incredibly moving to read the first hand accounts of heraldry and sacrifice and see artifacts from the time period. I highly recommend it if you are in the area.

    I found the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument to be quite informative. It tells you about one of the most important moments in US history. The inspiring recollection of the event that took place on the hallowed Monument that has been built to Memorialize this historic event is awe inspiring and reminds us that “Freedom isn’t Free!” It’s a very nice tribute.

    I was there with my son. It was very emotional to see and get all the information what happened there in the past. We visited the USS Arizona and all other sites. Also, the food on site is quite expensive. There is a small convenience store selling sandwiches for $4.50 minimum or there is a hot dog stand selling hot dogs for $4.

    Anyone will tell you that a trip to Oah’u must include a trip to Pearl Harbour as it is such an iconic piece of history but is also set within beautiful scenery. You can learn so much history here with the various museums and audio tours available. The World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument is a home of the USS Arizona Memorial. You would be amazed with the facts on the attack on Pearl Harbor, and how The United States entered into World War II.

    This is a very special place to visit. The tour is wonderful, great movie but there is nothing like taking the ferry to the Arizona. If you are in Honolulu then make sure you go to the Pearl Harbor Monument.

    It was interesting to us to visit this famous historic site as we learned a lot about WWII when we were in high school, and watched some movies mentioned about it. I was impressed with the opening documentary and the trip to Memorial Hall built on the Arizona. To any person of any age who remembers or studied the attack 1941 attack this is a must visit.

    I felt the documentary about the Pearl Harbor attack to be most engaging and well done. I felt very prepared for the journey to the Arizona Memorial. Pearl harbor is a beautiful memorial to those who died on the USS Arizona. It is educational and worth the visit.

    The Arizona Memorial, main museums and main base has its own audio tour and then the Bowfin has a separate audio tour just for exploring the inside of the submarine. It was a day trip but more than worth it. I can just highly recommend this during a stay in Hawaii.

    The reflection area was very moving to me; there was a poem that Eleanor Roosevelt carried in her wallet on a bench there, which really allowed you to reflect on the lives lost not only on that day, but throughout American History. A must to go to put this one on your bucket list.

    Everyone who visits Oahu MUST make a day of the Pearl Harbor experience. Such an amazing opportunity to learn about the history of this significant US landmark. You think you learned everything in history class, but you didn’t. Not only do the exhibits and short video educate you on the intricate details of what happened, so does your tour guide.

    A great companion to the Pearl Harbor Arizona battlefield memorial, this 4 hour tour was very informative. Museum exhibits with lots of artifacts. Everyone should come to thisn place and experience it first hand and reflect on what took place on Dec 7th 1941 and know how much the world owes these sailors who still lay at peace under the water right below your feet.

    We had a lot to fit in on our family vacation to Hawaii. Thought that fitting in Pearl Harbor couldn’t be done, but this 4 hour tour was perfect! Glad we took it. Learned a lot from the tour guide and the tour itself. Especially the 25 min short film. Obviously Pearl Harbor is a must do while you’re here.

    Visiting Pearl Harbor, The Arizona Memorial and the USS Missouri was honestly THE best day I spent i Hawaii. The respect to the history, the information on the day a& the lives lost, the heroes who survived & rebuild the ships, the Memorial, and the entire monument area was fantastic. It is a feeling of wonder as you visit this memorial in this beautiful paradise, for those there it was no paradise, just a horror and a memory. It worked to get the US involved.
