USS Arizona Memorial, Honolulu

(4.7/5 based on 17,000+ reviews on the web)
USS Arizona Memorial marks the final resting place of one of the most iconic World War II battleships destroyed in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. More than 1,100 sailors and marines died here when Japanese forces attacked the harbor. The memorial, constructed in 1962, attracts nearly 1 million people each year. Begin your tour at the visitor center, where you can listen to a free talk about that fateful day and watch a brief documentary about the attack. You can then take a shuttle boat to the memorial, which straddles the hull of the sunken battleship. Remember that the memorial admits only a limited number of visitors each day, so it is a good idea to book a tour well in advance. Set aside time for a visit to the memorial museum so you can take in the personal stories of American soldiers who fought and died here.

  • A memorial to those who fought and died bravely at the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It is a beautiful and respectful memorial that is informative and a place one can pay their respects. A must-visit for any visitor to Honolulu. Especially so if you're American, and if you like history.
  • This is an amazing place. There is a good reason why this is number one on many tourism lists. The memorial itself is free but there are little attractions and an audio tour which costs money.
  • Definitely worth a visit to a place with large historical significance. I would recommend this to everyone who is visiting Pearl Harbour.
  • Wonderful and educational memorial to mark the US entry into WWII. Suggest that you book online to reserve a ticket ($1.50) and plan to spend ~2 hours here if you don't visit the other museums. There are also some exhibits to explore around the memorial.
  • Just think of how many people give their lives needlessly. Nothing's fair in War. What is an awesome reminder the mistakes we make as humans I hope when you see this you don't make this mistake. Who do you believe
