Temporary Closure For USS Arizona Memorial
Visitor access to the USS Arizona Memorial has been suspended until a projected date of Fall 2019, 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. Please also see the superintendent's statement on the closure.
What Can I Do Instead?
In lieu of USS Arizona Memorial programs, visitors are taken on a 15-minute narrated harbor tour of Battleship Row, very near to the USS Arizona Memorial. Tickets are still required. Visitors can reserve tickets online at www.recreation.gov or come to the visitor center for same-day walk-in tickets. The visitor center, museums, and bookstore are still open from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, seven days a week, and our partner sites – the Battleship Missouri Memorial, the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park, and the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor – are open as usual.
- Parking at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is free.
- 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 park 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.
