Operating Hours & Seasons

Operating Hours

The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is open seven days a week, from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is closed Thanksgiving Day, December 25, and January 1.

Timed programs to the USS Arizona Memorial begin at 7:30 a.m. and run through 3:00 p.m. daily.

1,000 program tickets are handed out on a first-come, first-served basis daily. Reservations can also be made up to two months in advance by going here.

The USS Oklahoma Memorial and USS Utah Memorial on Ford Island are both open from dawn to dusk; visitors can access the USS Oklahoma Memorial via a shuttle from the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. However, the USS Utah Memorial is not currently available to the public via shuttle. Access is currently limited to visitors who have military base access.

World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument is the portal for all visitors to Pearl Harbor, and it consistently ranks among the top three most heavily-visited tourist destinations in the State of Hawaii. Visitors should expect heavy visitation throughout the year, but our busiest seasons are during the summer, winter holidays, and spring break.

Daily visitation is often more than 4,000 visitors, so reservations are recommended!
