A visit to the USS Arizona Memorial is a solemn and sobering experience, even for those who were not alive when the attack occurred.
Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial remain top tourist destinations in Hawaii, welcoming over 1,500,000 visitors annually. The addition of the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park in 1981, the Battleship Missouri Memorial in 1999 and the opening of the Pacific Aviation Museum in 2006 have further enhanced the importance of this historic area.
The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, part of the newly designated World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument, is the primary portal for visitors coming to Pearl Harbor. The Visitor Center is open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., seven days a week. Interpretive programs include a 23-minute documentary film about the attack on Pearl Harbor and a boat trip to the USS Arizona Memorial. The programs begin at 7:30 a.m. and run throughout the day until the last program at 3:00 p.m. The Visitor Center is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
After entering the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, visitors may choose from a variety of tours. In addition to visiting the USS Arizona Memorial, they may walk to the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park to learn about subsurface warfare. Visitors may also choose to take the Ford Island Shuttle from the Visitor Center to reach the Battleship Missouri Memorial and the Pacific Aviation Museum.
