USS Arizona MemorialThe USS Arizona Memorial is a stoic memorial that will stir emotions in every visitor who enters its gates.

The memorial is part of the WWII Valor in the Pacific national Monument., which includes sites on Ford island and several historic Battleship Row mooring quays.

The USS Arizona Memorial is built over the remains of the sunken battleship USS Arizona, the final resting place for many of the 1,177 crewmen killed on December 7, 1941 during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

While the tour is free, tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Typically, all the tickets are given away by noon.

At the Visitor Center, ticket holders will watch a 23-minute film on the history of the Pearl Harbor attack. After viewing the film, visitors board a Navy operated launch for the Memorial. The entire program takes 75 minutes.

An audio tour narrated by Academy Award winner Ernest Borgnine is a great way to pass the time while waiting to start your tour. The audio tour will guide you through the Visitor Center, interpretive displays, interpretive information on the shuttle boats and on the Memorial.
