USS Arizona Memorial

The USS Arizona was the site that suffered the most casualties in the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor during World War II, with 1,177 lives lost. Today, thousands flock to the oblong floating memorial in Oahu, situated directly above the hull of the sunken battleship, to honor and pay tribute to the fallen and remember the events of that fateful day.

Visitors to the USS Arizona Memorial can explore its airy white walls covered in the names of ship's crewmen who perished on Dec. 7, 1941. Also of note are the maps indicating the sunken ship's layout on the seafloor and the bridges set over open water that offer glimpses of the now-rusty warship. By far Pearl Harbor's most-visited attraction, the memorial is housed within the free World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument. Access is by timed ticket and includes the viewing of a short documentary covering the attacks, shown in the Memorial Theater.

Insider's Tip: Because the floating memorial sits over the resting place of servicemen, respectful silence is expected when visiting.

Practical Info

The USS Arizona Memorial is on Oahu's south coast, about 12 miles (20 km) west of Waikiki and Honolulu. While free, timed tickets to this popular site are limited to only 1,300 each day, so booking a tour in advance is recommended for guaranteed entry. Some tours include transport from Honolulu and Waikiki and all include round-trip shuttle boat transportation. Visitors should consider allotting one to two and a half hours for a visit to the USS Arizona.
