Directions

 

If you are using a GPS, the physical address is:

Pearl Harbor Historic Sites
1 Arizona Memorial Place
Honolulu, HI 96818


Be sure to use this address. A search for "Pearl Harbor" on Google Maps will take you to the active military base, not the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.

Please also make sure you do not try to take the Ford Island bridge. The visitor center is located right near the turn for the Ford Island bridge. Ford Island is only accessible by military personnel and government employees.* If you accidentally turn onto the bridge without proper ID, you will be directed to turn around. Once you turn around, please take a right onto Kamehameha Highway. The next right turn on Arizona Memorial Place will lead you to the visitor center.

*The Battleship Missouri and Pacific Aviation Museum, both located on Ford Island, are accessible to visitors via a shuttle that departs from the visitor center.
