World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument is the portal for all visitors to Pearl Harbor. 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.

  1. The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  2. The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is closed Thanksgiving Day, December 25, and January 1.
  3. Timed programs to the USS Arizona Memorial begin at 8:00 a.m. and run through 3:00 p.m. daily.

The USS Oklahoma Memorial and USS Utah Memorial on Ford Island are both open from dawn to dusk; however, unlike the USS Oklahoma Memorial, the USS Utah Memorial is not currently available to the public via shuttle.
