    Ecstatic there was round trip transportation because we were so excited to see this historic place. Greatly detailed and laid out. Good audio facilities to get the full details out of your visit. Great displays and the most moving films and reports we’ve ever seen. We enjoyed walking through the museum and learned so many interesting facts. Make Pearl Harbor a “must see” on your list!

    We always wanted to pay our respects for those who died. To me, it’s gotten too commercialized… But reading the history and honoring the memory was worth the screaming kids. Very impressive and very sobering. When you visit, it really hits home what happened there. Blessings to all who served and continue to serve our country.

    We visited as a family group, with the memorial being well-received by all (young adults and older adults). It has been 25+ years since I last visited, and the land-based portion of the memorial has changed dramatically for the better, with interesting exhibits and well-organized flow. Definitely worth a half day tour, but feel we needed more time.

    This is the target of the Japanese who viewed the American Fleet as the only force capable of thwarting their expansion objectives. The home base is Pearl Harbor which is still considered to be a military installation until now.  Fantastic and informative, a definite must when visiting Oahu. Unfortunately for us the winds were too strong for getting to the Arizona Memorial, but the museums and info stations were excellent.

    Well set out displays and site. Not too busy when we visited so lots of walking space and time to take photos.  It was very informative, it starts with a short movie presentation on how the bombing started. We then had a short boat trip out to the Arizona memorial.  It has a few souvenir shops, book store and 15 minute video which had me in tears. There is a hot dog stand.

    The entire plaza is well constructed and presented to inform about WWII. Enjoyed hearing the chief historian make a brief presentation at the shelter area. What a memorable place to visit for all the family. Must visit for all visiting Hawaii

    This was always a place I wanted to visit and pay my respects. No phones allowed on except for taking pictures, nice quite atmosphere and very respectful to the memory of all who lost their lives. So much to do. You MUST visit the sunken USS Arizona and the museum. Fascinating !

    It’s a very busy place. I found it to be a very powerful and moving place. It’s something you have to experience for yourself.I got the same feeling when I was at Vimy Ridge. Powerful! What an amazing yet sad memorial site. When we arrived at the USS Arizona site, it was eerie looking at what remains of the ship and to smell and see the fuel on the water’s surface.

    Loved it. It was a beautiful memorial. They gave you lots of history of war. Very nice and peaceful. Powerful to watch the slow oozing of the oil that continues from the Arizona. Was honored to learn the history behind this tragedy.

    Though it’s a somber place to visit, the museums explain from many points of view what happened during WWII. I am a history teacher, and the displays were perfect.  The narrated walked was captivating and so educational. We could feel the presence of the fallen solders. What a humble experience. A must see in Hawaii!

    If you are coming from a far like the U.K as we were Pearl Harbour should be at the top of your things to do list!!  I can guarantee you will not be let down at all!! A real moving & somber experience walking around the entire site.   A place with so much history. We really enjoyed the whole site seeing and the movie we got to watch what’re everything was explained in detail, thereafter we headed to the other side to view the ship that is still underwater.

    We were traveling with two teenagers and I was hoping that they wouldn’t get bored. I was presently surprised they didn’t!  The monuments are so well cared for, and its truly a special place. We brought leis to cut and place in the water. I would do your best to spend as much time there as possible.

    I always wanted to visit this site, since I’m from AZ. My childhood’s friends’ dad was stationed on this ship and was on a boat going ashore when the attack happened. He lived through the attack and had 5 kids (his family was a big part of my life while growing up.) First you go into an auditorium & watch our pearl harbor unfolded. It really gave you a insight of actually what happened on that tragic day. The memorial for the Arizona is masterful & pays a fitting tribute to all of the crew that lost their lives so tragically. Everyone from our boat paid their respects by keeping quiet & not talking. I think this goes without saying!!

    We exlored the USS Missouri and the USS Bowfin and the aviation museum as well as the USS Arizona.  The exhibits were engaging and very interesting. I thought I knew a lot about Pearl Harbor and turn out I knew just the surface. Recommend everyone visiting a least once. A really tribute to our military and those who died that day.

    Once they take you out to the actual memorial it was crazy to see the oil still bubbling up to the surface. There’s a remembrance wall that shows the lives that were lost on the ship. A part of History that would touch your inner soul… This place will take you back to the gallantry and courage of our men in uniform.

    Had a great visit.  Boat ride was pleasant. Memorial was moving. This is definitely worth going to. It is a moving memorial to what happened on Dec 7, 1941. The movie is great. The Arizona memorial is touching. Highly recommend.

    I really enjoyed this tour as it showed a brief video before they take you out to see the memorial. The video was very informative for someone who isn’t a big history buff.   It becomes very real seeing the ship still under water where so many lives were lost. The hangers still have the bullet holes in them.It takes you back to the day of the attack….

    Great information on the history of this event, as I was not aware of the overall specific details and amount of lives lost. I am so glad we took the time to visit Pearl Harbor. We did the Arizona Memorial, the Battleship Missouri, and wandered the visitors centre

    An essential destination for all visitors. For all the beauty and loveliness the island has to offer, the significance of the permanent tomb that scars the harbor and reminds us all of the perils of war. Found this tour very interesting saw a film before getting on a boat that takes you too. The memorial itself… very emotional and historical at the same time.

    I am so glad I came here.  this is a well designed memorial that you access by boat. Sited above the Arizona which you can see part of under the water. So many lost their lives. I cannot find the words to describe the feeling while you are there and even after you leave.

    A video is played before you enter the boat which then takes you to ford island.  Afterwards, wander through the two parts museum which displays very good exhibits in order to better understand what happened on that day and in that era. Be prepared that more than once you probably shed a tear – or several. The tour was very interesting and very informative, alot of history and many sights too see, definitely a must if visiting Hawaii.

    The NPS Pearl Harbor Memorial is a moving tribute to the men and women who valiantly served our country during WWII. 
    As Americans, we need to remember those who died to protect our country.   I met a veteran from the attack and that was amazing to see him and have a quick chat. It is a must do.

    The park service has built a beautiful memorial that is packed with historical information.  This is always a great place to visit while on the island. A lot of history and time to reflect on what happened in the past.

Arizona Memorial at Night

As you cruise comfortably in air conditioned transportation, your knowledgeable tour guide will provide historical background of Pearl Harbor and the December 7, 1941 surprise attack.

Since admission has already been arranged, skip the long ticket lines and start your exploration of the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument upon arrival. The replicas, artifacts, and interactive exhibits in the museums will educate and fascinate. The 23-minute film contains rare footage of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and is a must-see.

A Navy vessel will shuttle you to the USS Arizona Memorial, built directly over the sunken ship. The oil slowly leaking from the wreckage below is known as the “Black Tears of the Arizona and it is said that the resulting rainbow-colored patterns sometimes form a face on the water’s surface. Please take a moment at the Remembrance Wall to honor the lives of the 1177 servicemen for whom the Arizona Memorial was built.
