USS Arizona Memorial marks the final resting place of one of the most iconic World War II battleships destroyed in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. More than 1,100 sailors and marines died here when Japanese forces attacked the harbor. The memorial, constructed in 1962, attracts nearly 1 million people each year. Begin your tour at the visitor center, where you can listen to a free talk about that fateful day and watch a brief documentary about the attack. You can then take a shuttle boat to the memorial, which straddles the hull of the sunken battleship. Remember that the memorial admits only a limited number of visitors each day, so it is a good idea to book a tour well in advance. Set aside time for a visit to the memorial museum so you can take in the personal stories of American soldiers who fought and died here.

The memorial or museum has about four different tours. I was able to get onto the USS Missouri and the submarine. It’s good if you really like history or want to learn more, being that I’m not much of a history fanatic I skimmed through the majority of it. The Missouri had a lot of interesting points with a spot dedicated to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. There’s also two rooms/areas to walk in for history on the attack and aftermath that are free. Two gifts shops and a food truck. Definitely get the pack for four that’s more affordable but make a whole day trip of it!
Just awesome! First of all, thanks to brave men and woman that served and currently serve! Touching experience and really informative! The scenery around the site is so gorgeous and the tour guides really care so much about the site and it makes it that much better! Take the time and go pay respects and learn about this special place.
