Honestly, a lot is going on each day at Pearl Harbor. Right now, the best day would be Thursday. Itʻs a day that sees fewer visitors overall, yet all of the ships, museums, and exhibits are open.
Visiting Pearl Harbor
We want to make sure your time in Hawaii is fantastic, every single day. A day visiting Pearl Harbor is one of the most popular things to do, so it’s important to make sure you have a great day while getting the most out of it.
You should see four main historic sites at Pearl Harbor; Arizona Memorial, Battleship Missouri, Bowfin Submarine Museum, and Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum. Each site has different times, pricing, and availabilities.
Pearl Harbor National Memorial
The Pearl Harbor National Memorial is open every day. The park service provides access to and maintains the Arizona Memorial and the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center Museums. The hours are from 7 am to 5 pm daily. In most cases, your group should pre-reserve the USS Arizona tickets at $1.00 each or risk getting whatever tickets and times are available when you arrive.
Due to COVID restrictions, there are fewer daily tickets, and the theater showing a documentary with historical footage is closed. You can watch this 23-minute film on the lanai. Your guide will show you.
