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.
Tickets are required for the program. Visitors can get walk-in tickets on the day of their visit (based on availability), or they can reserve online at www.recreation.gov.
Please note: The Senior National Park Pass is not needed for entrance, because there is no fee. You also cannot purchase a Senior Park Pass at WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument. However, senior passes can be purchased online. Other annual passes can also be purchased online. www.recreation.gov. Please keep in mind that you will pay a non-refundable $1.50 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.
