USS Arizona Memorial marks the final resting place of one of the most iconic World War II battleships destroyed in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. More than 1,100 sailors and marines died here when Japanese forces attacked the harbor. The memorial, constructed in 1962, attracts nearly 1 million people each year. Begin your tour at the visitor center, where you can listen to a free talk about that fateful day and watch a brief documentary about the attack. You can then take a shuttle boat to the memorial, which straddles the hull of the sunken battleship. Remember that the memorial admits only a limited number of visitors each day, so it is a good idea to book a tour well in advance. Set aside time for a visit to the memorial museum so you can take in the personal stories of American soldiers who fought and died here.

Absolutely worth seeing and spending time soaking it all in. If you couldn’t get online tickets, get up early the day you want to go and get in standby line by 6:15 am. Doors open at 7:00 am and the first boat to the memorial goes over at 8:00 am. Very good chance you will get on the first boat. There is no cost if you are in the standby line for the memorial. We were second in line and there ended up being about 30 seats. This is not a guaranteed way to get to go but often people are late or don’t show up for their time slot. Some lucky ones are able to get tickets online but if you are one of them, don’t panic. The day we were there we noticed everyone got on a boat and the last boat of the day had only 25 on it. Each boat holds about 75 people. There are several very interesting free museums on site. And plenty of plaques to read. You can also purchase tickets to see the submarine museum, the Missouri and an air force museum. All worth it. We didn’t get to do the air force museum but did everything else. That’s why it took 10 hours. Enjoy.
A piece of history! We really enjoyed our visit. We took advantage of the audio tours and would recommend doing that. It provides a lot of interesting information as you move throughout the exhibits. Bathrooms were clean and the food options provided were good and at decent prices. Don’t forget to stop at the gift shop!
