Pearl Harbor Visitor Center

Pearl Harbor Visitor Center Review

The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, reopened after a $58 million renovation and is now the gateway to the World War II Valor In the Pacific National Monument and the starting point for visitors to this historic site. Pearl Harbor is a must-see for many, but there are things to know before you go. Consider whether you want to see only the Arizona Memorial, or the USS Bowfin and USS Missouri as well (the latter two charge separate admission fees). Allow approximately an hour and 15 minutes for the USS Arizona tour. The majority of Arizona tickets are now given out at recreation.gov where you book a specific time slot. But if you didn't get a ticket online, arrive early for a limited number of same-day tickets and prepare to wait for your time slot. There are restrictions on what you can bring with you, including purses, backpacks, and camera cases (although cameras are allowed). Baggage lockers are available for a small fee. Also, don't forget ID.
