Basic Information

Temporary Closure For USS Arizona Memorial
Visitor access to the USS Arizona Memorial has been suspended 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. The National Park Service has awarded the contract for repair of the anchoring system. Repairs are projected to be complete by fall 2019 and in time for the next December 7 remembrance, provided no issues arise during the construction period. We appreciate the public's continued patience as we work as fast as possible to fix the dock at the USS Arizona Memorial. Updates will be provided on our website and Facebook page.
