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.

Walk-In Tickets


  • Entry to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is free, including access to our two museums and exhibits along the harbor.
  • Tickets to the USS Arizona Memorial are free.

Over 1,300 tickets to the memorial are given away every day, starting when the monument opens at 7:00 a.m. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are issued to each individual visitor. Therefore, all individuals in your party must be present at the ticket counter at the time of issue.

During our busiest times (Christmas break, spring break, and summertime), we often run out of tickets early in the day. If you want to get a walk-in ticket during busy times, plan to arrive as early as possible.

Children do not need a ticket if they are small enough to sit on the lap of their guardian during the film and while on the boats to and from the USS Arizona Memorial. If they will be in their own seat, they need a ticket.


Reserve Tickets

Reservations can be made through www.recreation.gov. There are two windows to make a reservation.

  • The 60-day window: You can make reservations up to 60 days in advance. That means that on April 10, you can make a reservation as far in advance as June 9. You can make reservations online at recreation.gov.
  • The 24-hour window: If you've tried to reserve tickets but found that there are none available for the day and time you want to visit, log back onto recreation.gov on the day before your visit. Every day, recreation.gov releases a certain number of "next day" tickets, beginning at 7:00 a.m. HST. So for example, if you want to visit on January 13th, you can check for availability starting at 7:00 a.m. HST on January 12th.

Please keep in mind that you will pay a non-refundable $1.00 convenience fee per reserved ticket. There is a reservation limit of 12 tickets per person per day.


USS Arizona Memorial Audio Tour

The USS Arizona Memorial audio tour can be purchased for $7.50 per headset. It is available through our partner association, Pacific Historic Parks. The audio tour is separate from but supplementary to the free USS Arizona Memorial program. The audio tour includes more in-depth information about the attack, as well as oral histories from survivors.

  • If you are also taking the boat out to the memorial, you can plan on the audio tour adding about one hour to that program, for a total of 2 hours, 15 minutes.
  • The audio tour covers points along the harbor, in our museums, and at the memorial, and it's available in English, French, Italian, Russian, German, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese (Mandarin). Please note that the Italian and Russian versions do not include a translation of the 23-minute documentary shown in the theater at the beginning of the USS Arizona Memorial program.
  • If you plan to make USS Arizona Memorial program reservations online, you will have the option to reserve headsets ahead of time, as well.
