Temporary Closure of the USS Arizona Memorial
Please be advised that the USS Arizona Memorial will not be accessible until the fall of 2019 as repairs are made to the memorial's visitor loading dock. In the interim, visitors with free USS Arizona Memorial program tickets will continue to see a 25-minute documentary film followed by a narrated harbor tour of Battleship Row on U.S. Navy vessels, which pass as close as possible to the USS Arizona Memorial. Visitors are also welcome to tour our two free museums, shore side exhibits, snack shop and bookstore, and all of our partner sites remain open and available. Updates on the repairs will be provided as they become available.
