USS Arizona Memorial Reopens (again)

Updated: Dec 10, 2020

The Memorial has reopened as of September 20th, 2020 with the following requirements:

Tours will be limited to 50 people per vessel to facilitate social distancing. The National Park Service asks visitors to reserve tickets ahead of time on prior to arrival and present a paper copy or digital reservation confirmation to NPS staff for validation no sooner than 30 minutes prior to their program time.

Tickets for specific tour dates will be made available at 3:00 HST the day before the selected program date. For example, tickets for October 10 will become available on October 9. A limited number of walk-up tickets will also be available on a first-come first-served basis.

Face coverings are required for all visitors while transiting to and from the USS Arizona Memorial. (Please note that face coverings are required in all public spaces throughout the Hawaiian Islands per the State of Hawaii mandate.)

The Battleship Missouri Memorial, USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum remain closed to the public until further notice.

One of the most pivotal moments in US history, 1,177 lives were lost on the USS Arizona in the Japanese surprise attack at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. At the Pearl Harbor National Memorial, learn about the attack and the subsequent entry of the United States into World War II.

If you plan to visit the memorial, be sure to visit the official visitor information website, for the latest status. Tickets are free except for a small service charge, directly from the National Park Service at their official visitor ticketing website.

You may also visit the two museums, exhibits, bookstore, and the virtual reality center for free as well.

The Battleship Missouri Memorial pictured above, along with the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park, and the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor have separate admission fees.

If you would like to book the complete Pearl Harbor tour, visit our Resort Experience Concierge located at the Activity Desk in the Lobby at the Beach Villas or book online before your arrival. The complete tour includes the memorial, battleship, submarine, museums plus transportation to and from the site. The tours will resume when the memorial reopens.

Pearl Harbor is open daily from 7am to 5pm (closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day). Free parking is available at the visitors center.
