Tips to Know Before You Go For The Pearl Harbor Tour

If you are visiting Pearl Harbor then we have the most comprehensive three-hour self-guided package incorporating three incredible Pearl Harbor tours experiences. Keep in mind that all sites and the visitor center itself close at 5:00 PM during the summer months. Free self-guiding audio tours are included with their admission and are available in English, German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Mandarin.

Please be here an hour before your scheduled ticket time so that you can complete the narrated tour portion in our exhibit galleries before you see the documentary and go to the memorial. The audio tour is narrated by actress Jamie Lee Curtis, daughter of actor and Pacific War veteran Tony Curtis.

Visually-impaired visitors will find signage in braille in addition to tactile models of various interpretive resources throughout the site. For visitors with hearing impairments, the documentary shown in the theater is fully-captioned (in English).There is an induction loop for use with hearing aids. There are also many locations throughout the park for visitors to sit and rest.

Military visitors are welcome to wear civilian clothes when they visit. Visitors are reminded that they are visiting a site of tremendous loss of life in service to our country. There are several parking lots with free parking at the visitor center.

There are also many restaurants a short drive away from the visitor center. However, food and drinks are allowed at the visitor center, which has a small snack shop with sandwiches and drinks. Other than clear bottled water, there is NO food or drinks allowed in the theater, on the shuttle boats, or at the USS Arizona Memorial.

Please keep in mind that there are NO public restrooms on the USS Arizona Memorial. We have restrooms located throughout the visitor center. You may also want to plan time to see our two museums and exhibits along the harbor.

The USS Arizona Memorial program is FREE. 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.
