  • Been to Hawaii 4 times while serving in the Navy and everytime we pulled into Pearl Harbor I always had to snap some pics of this Historical Naval Vessel. This is what pure original old school Navy was all about... Battleships. I highly recommend to visit and take a look at American history for yourself.
  • A rare opportunity to glimpse a key piece of naval hardware that played an integral role throughout multiple key points during the 20th Century. The basic tour only covered a limited space on the ship, which at first, I couldn't understand given the sheer size of the vessel. Essentially you tour the bow and starboard sides, a bit of the tower, then are left on your own to explore the rest. Once we started below deck, we understood why - the fact that the ship was retrofitted in the 80's means that you get all of its glory (or lack thereof), which means "old" but not in an interesting historical way. So many of the passageways were deserted and sparsely documented, it just felt a bit creepy being so alone in such a large space. I hope in the future more will be done to restore the interior, so my advice would be to skip below the deck (or just do a brief tour), and move onto other sites in the Monument.
  • Tried to book a multi-site package through them. WARNING: An "audio tour" does *NOT* include the *ACTUAL* tour somehow. Called to complain when I got the confirmation that informed me of this and was cut off in the middle of speaking by the receptionist who was extraordinarily rude to me. She put me on hold and my wife answered when she came back because I was currently driving. My wife pointed out that it was unacceptable to be rude to a customer, which the receptionist thought was excused because she was "very busy". My wife told her she didn't care if the lady was busy, it was her job and started to yell at her because that was even more unacceptable of an excuse. Directly in the middle of my wife speaking, the woman just puts my wife on hold without another word and proceeded to disappear for about 10 minutes. When the phone was answered again, it was a manager who was very helpful and refunded our money since the package description was misleading. Rather than give them your money, look on Groupon. Their prices are better anyway and it's better not to give this company your money if you can avoid it.
  • I acctually when here for a school field trip and it is very intresting i think that it is worth going there. I loved the backround behind the ship.
  • Very interesting seeing a ship like this so up close and personal. I'm so glad they have this museum to learn. Also the beautiful sea life near by was a plesent addition
