    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.

    the U.S. Navy will shuttle you from the center to the sloping white memorial. You see oil that still slowly seeps up to the water's surface from the wreckage 😢you can pay your respects

    Beautiful memorial and important place of remembrance. Be sure to make reservations online weeks ahead. A few tickets will be available at 3pm the day before, as well.

    Very moving. I was incredibly annoyed by those who laughed and giggled while viewing it. Have some respect!

    I liked the way they made it a real memorial place to the lives lost here. It was midweek and the parking lot was full at 10.30. Make reservations online at least a day earlier!

    Definitely do the audio tour. It will provide the historical context that will make your visit meaningful. If you are planning a Honolulu visit this place is definitely must-see!

    Go online to get reservations for visits in the future. Otherwise you can pick up tickets for visits later the same day. Last visiting hour is 3:00 pm.

    An amazing place to see and visit. Mind you this is not a place where you act foolish and carry on. I loved it so much and was so touched

    A very moving experience. You watch a short film before the boat ride to the memorial. No large bags are allowed. Oil still leaks from the ship at two quarts a day, known as the "Black Tears".

    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.

    Sunken remains of the battleship were declared a National Historic Landmark in 1989. Oil can still be seen from the ship; & is referred to as “Tears of the Arizona” or “black tears.”

    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.

    Speak to ranger Naomi Drye. Ask her the story of the tears of the sailors. Tell her Karina and her little girl, Kara, from Maine, will always remember it. :)

    Be quiet and respect the thousands of lives entombed underneath you. The people giggling and laughing and cracking jokes were not appreciated.

    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

    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

    Visit early. The tickets are free, but the lines get longer later in the day. Also visit the many museums on site, all are free.

    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!
