While most people who go here will take the free tour, the packaged tours they offer are really worth it. You get to see more of the harbor and other memorials not accessible by the public.
Please don't check in when you're actually at the memorial, show respect for those who lost their lives.
Stepping foot there, you can't Help feeling Great Sorrow, for this Fateful Day! My Grandpa was working at Pearl Harbor at the time of the Attack. Retired Pipefitter born on 4th of July 1922
Sit on right side of boat while approaching memorial - better for photo taking of the memorial from the boat
Bags aren't allowed inside the memorial area. There's a baggage storage right by the entrance. You can bring your cameras and cell phones. Audio tour is $6 per person.
Take it from someone who lives in Pearl Harbor, morning is not the best time. That's when it's the most crowded. Try and catch the last boats at 3-4 for a mellow not too crowded visit
Get there early to get in line to get tickets. Make sure to watch the movie as well.
A pretty heartwrenching place to visit
Everyone says to go early in the AM but we went at 2:40 on a saturday after the cruise ships left and it was empty! We got 3pm tix for the boat ride over to the memorial. Perfect!
You can wait "standby" for the boat ride over to the USS Arizona - our tix were for 11:45 and we got on the 8:30 boat!
Come very early to get your free tickets. Always busy but if you make it before 10 am you can beat some crowds. The USS Arizona tour is approx. 1 hour.
Plan to spend at least 3-4 hours, worth it!
Blackened Canteen Ceremony at USS Arizona Memorial アリゾナ記念館で「黒焦げの水筒」慰霊祭が行われました http://www.poohkohawaii.com/event/blackened_canteen.html
Dress with a bit if respect and wear deodorant.
The audio tour was very emotional, listening to the survivors talk about that day was heartbreaking.
Sentimental place in US history. With the sun shining in the blue sky's of Hawaii, it's hard to believe what happened in the exact place you are standing some years ago.
Tickets were sold out but waited and got in on standby-worth the wait!
