Fodor's 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. At the visitor center are interpretive exhibits in two separate galleries (Road to War and Attack) that feature photographs and personal memorabilia from World War II veterans. But there are other exhibits, a bookstore, and a Remembrance Circle, where you can learn about the people who lost their lives on December 7, 1941. Survivors are often on hand to give their personal accounts and answer stories. The visitor center is also where you start your tour of the USS Arizona Memorial if you have secured a walk-in or reserved a timed ticket.
