Visiting the Arizona memorial and touring the Missouri were the highlights. It was the beginning and the end of the war.

Pearl Harbor: USS Arizona Memorial & USS Missouri Battleship Tour from Waikiki
This was such an enjoyable tour. Eli made it special due to the shoreside dock being closed at the Arizona. Small group size and very careful about Covid protocols.

Best tour we’ve taken, our tour guide Blake was beyond awesome. He gave us as much details about the USS Missouri things we didn’t know. He took us to the punch bowl where he gave us history about the people who were buried there and the meaning behind the Mural there.. Loved this tour

Great experience for everyone! As many have already said, quite disappointing that the Arizona is not available to be seen. Especially since this year was the 80th anniversary! Very much needs to be mentioned everywhere!

Pearl Harbor: USS Arizona Memorial & USS Missouri Battleship Tour from Waikiki
It was terrific to see, and Halulka was an awesome tour guide. However, we were very disappointed that Arizona was closed. And I would have expected a bit of a refund based on the change in the tour. I would not recommend this until Arizona is opened.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Many of the battleship’s exhibits are on the deck of the ship, so make sure to bring sunscreen and a hat.

  • To save on USS Missouri admission (and admission to all Pearl Harbor historic sites), purchase the Passport to Pearl Harbor online, in advance of your visit.

  • Don’t miss the exhibit about WWII kamikazes or the dent on the ship, where a kamikaze pilot attacked.

  • The USS Missouri is wheelchair accessible, and wheelchairs are available for rent at the main entrance.

How to Get There

The USS Missouri is located on Ford Island. Visitors must arrive via the designated Ford Island visitor shuttle, which leaves from the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center and from the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum, or visit on a guided tour. Many full-day Pearl Harbor tours include round-trip transportation from Honolulu, Maui, or the Island of Hawaii.

When to Get There

The USS Missouri Memorial is open daily from morning through late afternoon, with slightly extended hours in June, July, and August. The ship is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and Near Year’s Day. Pearl Harbor is one of Oahu’s most popular tourist sites, so it can get crowded. Arrive early in the morning or visit during the off-season (in spring or fall) to avoid crowds.

Other Pearl Harbor Sites

Pearl Harbor’s main draw is the USS Arizona Memorial, which marks the resting place of the Marines who were killed during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Visitors can also tour the USS Bowfin, a WWII-era submarine; learn about submarine history at the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park; and see a vast collection of WWII-era planes at the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum.
