Operating Hours & Seasons
Updated July 5, 2013
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.
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. Access to the USS Utah Memorial is currently limited to visitors who have military base access.
Did You Know?
Unlike the battlefields of Gettysburg and Antietam, the story of Pearl Harbor is alive in the memories of those who witnessed the attack. The Pearl Harbor survivors who volunteer at the USS Arizona Memorial tell their story to the public; they truly are living history.
