“was to windy to visit.”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We got tickets for the 2pm boat to the memorial but the winds picked up in the afternoon so we couldnt go over. My suggestion is get there early and do this attraction first or right after the submarine.

“an all-day event going here”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We visited Pearl Harbor and it was amazing (a little repetitive at times) but wonderful. It does take all day..

“Pearl Harbor a must for all travelers!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Early morning visits are best as the crowds are much smaller and the water in the harbor is calmer. Should visit with a tour group, as they will obtain admission tickets and you avoid the long waits. Afternoon visits can find long wait times. If pressed for time, definitely watch the movie. Very touching and emotional. Can spend as much time on the Arizona Memorial as you want. Park Rangers are onsite on the Arizona Memorial to answer questions; was told that the oil slicks from the Arizona are most visible early in the morning when the currents are slow (4 QTS every 24 hours on average; they have estimated that the ship will continue leaking oil for another 70 years). Camera's are permitted, but not large camera bags or any type of bags. Lockers are available to store personal items. Many days there are survivors that will meet with visitors (they have tables set up outside of the gift shop where there are "meet and greets" for the survivors and visiting book authors).

“The highlight of my Hawaii trip.”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

The educational video before boarding the shuttle to the memorial was very informative for those who may not know the history. The ride over is somewhat somber after seeing the video, and they ask that you remain quiet as you approach the memorial and while in the memorial. It is a beautiful memorial fitting for the lives lost that day and the men who's remains have been brought back to be with their shipmates on the Arizona. It is inspiring and humbling to be standing there in the place where so many heroes died. The only disappointment I had was in the people who were there at the same time who felt the need to treat it as an amusement park with their loud conversations and lack of respect for those men who's graves are in the ship below. Most people get it, but there are those who simply have no respect nor consideration for others. Please, if you have children that you are not capable of controlling or feel that your right to talk outweighs these heroes right to a respectful quietness, skip this part of you visit to this Hawaiian island.

“A moving experience”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

The tour of the Arizona was incredibly moving. The museum is amazing, and getting to see the actual ship on the bottom of the harbor was amazing. It's a beautiful memorial.
