Pearl Harbor National Memorial, Pearl Harbor

HONOLULU | The Pearl Harbor National Memorial is a US National Memorial dedicated to commemorating the events of the Attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

The site includes the USS Arizona Memorial, the final resting place of 1,177 sailors killed during the Pearl Harbor attack. It also contains the USS Utah memorial, the USS Oklahoma memorial, six chief petty officer bungalows on Ford Island, mooring quays F6, F7, and F8, which formed part of Battleship Row, and the visitor center at Halawa Landing.

It’s a busy attraction, but well worth visiting if you have even a passing interest in history, or what happened at Pearl Harbor. The visitor centre and museum is interesting and informative, detailing the events leading up to the attack and its aftermath. Displays feature personal memorabilia, photographs, artifacts of the battle, and more.

The USS Arizona Memorial program takes 75 minutes. It includes an introduction, a 23-minute documentary film, and a Navy-operated return shuttle boat ride to the USS Arizona Memorial, including time to experience the memorial.

There is no entry fee for the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, and no ticket is required to see the museums. The USS Arizona Memorial does require a ticket, but tickets are free.

If you wish to visit the USS Arizona Memorial, you can reserve one up to 60 days in advance on the monument’s ticket portal. Walk-up tickets are available, but are restricted to 1,300 per day on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 7:00am. If you want to get a walk-up ticket, waits can be quite long and entry isn’t guaranteed – so get there early.

For $7.50, you can opt for an audio tour of all of Pearl Harbor National Memorial’s sites. Narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, the audio tour offers a detailed look at the attack on Pearl Harbor, explaining various points of interests. I recommend it.

Only clear see-through bags are permitted inside the monument’s buildings. If you do not have a clear bag with you, you may leave your bag in the property’s storage area for free.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
