The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center has reserved accessible parking in the front lot. The restrooms, movie theater, exhibit galleries, bookstore, information desk and drinking fountains, Navy shuttle boats, and USS Arizona Memorial are all fully-accessible to people in wheelchairs.
Walking the distance between facilities can be challenging for visitors with mobility issues, although there are several benches located throughout the visitor center to facilitate rest opportunities.
Please note: The visitor center does not offer wheelchairs, except in emergency situations.
For visitors with hearing impairments, the documentary shown in the theater is fully-captioned (in English).There is an induction loop for use with hearing aids.
For visitors who will need American Sign Language (ASL) interpretive services:
1. If you are visiting the USS Arizona Memorial and our partner sites WITH a tour company, please reserve an interpreter through your tour company.
2. If you are visiting the USS Arizona Memorial and our partner sites WITH A RECREATION.GOV reservation (and WITHOUT a tour company), please email e-mail us with the subject "ASL Interpretive Services Request"
Please reach out to us as soon as you have your recreation.gov reservation, as ASL interpretation takes at least 5 business days before you plan to visit the memorial. ASL interpreters are not available unless requested prior to your visit. Pearl Harbor National Memorial Rangers cannot make or modify reservations.
During your visit, an ASL interpreter can be available to interpret the boat ride, the memorial visit, and interactions with park staff. Your interpreter will be available for two hours while at the visitor center. If more time is needed, it will be your party's responsibility to cover any additional cost.
If you plan to visit more than just the USS Arizona site, please let us know so we can put you in touch with the other Pearl Harbor Historic Sites.
Visually impaired visitors will find signage in braille in addition to tactile models of various interpretive resources throughout the site. We also provide a braille-ready file (BRF), which is a digital copy of an embossed braille booklet transcribed from the park brochure.
