Pearl Harbor National Memorial

The iconic white USS Arizona Memorial sits right above the sunken ship. The USS Arizona was hit early in the attacks, with one bomb penetrating the magazine chamber where ammunition is stored and causing a huge explosion. During the sinking of the Arizona, 1,177 sailors perished, their remains buried within the wreckage. Today, the USS Arizona Memorial is Pearl Harbor’s most visited site and continues to serve as a final resting place for sailors who survived the attack and passed away later in life.

Admission Included

Battleship Missouri Memorial

Walk the deck of the last battleship the US ever built in the footprints of General MacArthur and Admiral Chester Nimitz.
