Basic Information

Temporary Closure For USS Arizona Memorial

Superintendent's Statement on Closure

Important: Visitor access to the USS Arizona Memorial has been suspended for several months due to movement of the loading dock and corresponding movement of the loading ramp to the memorial, which poses a safety concern for our visitors. While repairs are made, the USS Arizona Memorial will remain closed. Updates will be provided on our website and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/valorNPS).

What Can I Do Instead?

In lieu of USS Arizona Memorial programs, visitors will be taken on a 30-minute narrated harbor tour of Battleship Row and the area around the USS Arizona Memorial. Tickets are still required. Visitors can get walk-in tickets at the visitor center on a first come, first served basis, or reserve tickets online at www.recreation.gov.

The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, museums, and bookstore are still open as usual from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, seven days a week. Our partner sites – the Battleship Missouri Memorial, the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park, and the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor – are also open as usual.

 

Operating Hours and Seasons
The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is part of WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument, a National Park Service site. The visitor center is open seven days a week, from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. It is closed three days a year: Thanksgiving, December 25, and January 1.

The visitor center consistently ranks among the top three most heavily-visited tourist destinations in Hawai'i. Visitors should expect heavy visitation throughout the year, but our busiest seasons are summer, winter holidays, and spring break. Daily visitation averages about 4,000 visitors, so reservations are recommended.

Fees and Passes
There is no entry fee for the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, and no ticket is required to see the museums. The USS Arizona Memorial program does require a ticket, but tickets are free. Visitors can get walk-in tickets on the day of their visit (based on availability), or they can reserve online at www.recreation.gov. Programs to the USS Arizona Memorial are operated by the National Park Service.

The National Park Pass is not needed for entrance, because there is no fee. You also cannot purchase a National Park Pass at the monument. However, passes can be purchased online.

Permits and Reservations
Reservations can be made either up to 60 days or 24-hours in advance, through www.recreation.gov. You will pay a non-refundable $1.00 convenience fee per reserved ticket. You are not paying for your free USS Arizona Memorial program ticket; you are paying a convenience fee to make your reservation. There is a reservation limit of 12 tickets per person per day.
