Ask the Big Kahuna "Answering the most common visitor questions"


Do you actually get to go on the ship at the Pearl Harbor Memorial?

The Big Kahuna


Aloha Sammie-

There are three visitor destinations at Pearl Harbor: USS Arizona Memorial, Battleship Missouri Memorial, and the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. At all of these memorials you have the opportunity to tour the inside of the vessel. The USS Arizona was the only vessel here that was in the Pearl Harbor attack, the others were relocated to Pearl Harbor.

The accessible portion of the USS Arizona Memorial is the above-water mid-section of the sunken battleship. Here, you get a real sense of the sacrifice experienced by our military personnel during the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941.
