The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center at night.

The current museum and visitor center opened in 2010 to accommodate the vastly increased number of people that visit each year with expanded, comfortable, and ecologically aware facilities. While much has been done, much remains to be accomplished.

Financial Contributions

You can be part of our efforts to preserve Pacific War history! The Pearl Harbor National Memorial accepts financial donations for specific projects, programs, or general operations. This is an opportunity to be part of something that will last generations and touch millions of people. The donor receives a letter of acknowledgement from the park superintendent and other recognition, as appropriate.

Donations will be used for maintenance and upkeep of the USS Arizona Memorial, park grounds, USS Utah and USS Oklahoma sites; and to provide and enhance exhibits, museum collections, and other visitor services. Unless the donor specifies how they would like the funds to be spent, general donation account funds are used at the national monument's discretion for interpretive, educational, or research projects. Large donations may be earmarked for specific projects determined mutually by the donor and the national memorial superintendent.

Direction contributions can be sent to:

Pearl Harbor National Memorial
1845 Wasp Blvd Bldg #176
Honolulu, HI 96818
Attn: Superintendent

Checks should be made out to the National Park Service.
