Visiting Pearl Harbor with Kids

Maui Things to Do

Maui Restaurants Road To Hana Kaanapali Beach Club

Oahu Things to Do

Polynesian Cultural Center Pearl Harbor Hilton Hawaiian Village - Oahu

There are a variety of things to see in Pearl Harbor.  First and foremost is the USS Arizona Memorial which is free.  In addition, for a charge you can visit the Battleship Missouri, Pacific Aviation Museum  and the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum.  

 A trip to visit the USS Arizona memorial is a must see when visiting Oahu.  This is one tour that is so touching that you will never forget it. 

Take the audio tour which cost $5 and is about 2 1/2 hours, it will make the trip much more meaningful.  It is like having a tour guide with you.

Your tour begins with an extremely moving 20 minute film and then you board the boat for the USS Arizona.  The tour will play during the ride out to the memorial, describing the shore line and the memorial and then continues at the site and for your return trip.  In addition, it will guide you through the museum explaining exhibits as you wait for your tour time.  The audio tour can be stopped and re-started at any time. 

You should allow at least 5 - 6  hours for your visit to Pearl Harbor if you plan on visiting all of the sites.  This tour can get very crowded and could have very long lines.  Try to arrive early in the morning when it opens to avoid the crowds.

You can see from the pictures below the Arizona memorial stands in the harbor in the exact location where the ship went down.  You can see the parts of the wreckage under the water once on the memorial.  In addition, there is a wall listing all those killed on this tragic day. You can still see oil seepage after all of these years.

The  museum is small but with the audio tour it will probably take about 45 minutes.

Battleship Missouri Tour

We did the USS Arizona as well as the Battleship Missouri and the Pacific Aviation Museum.  We decided not to do  the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum.  The tour begins at the visitor center and you are shuttled to Ford Island.  Once on the ship there is an informational movie and then you are free to explore the ship on your own or to take a guided tour.  We explored on our own and  found it to be very informative and enjoyable.  It was a real experience to wander through the ship and to see what the sailor's life what like.   I would absolutely recommend it.

Pacific Aviation Museum Tour

I was a bit disappointed in the Pacific Aviation Museum.  It is very small and there really is not al lot in it.  I was not very impressive.  It is part of the Missouri price package so you might as well go see it since you paid for it.

One important issue is that for security reasons you are not allowed to bring bags of any size to the Battleship Missouri Memorial or other Pearl Harbor Historic Sites.  This includes backpacks, diaper bags, fanny packs, camera bags, purses, luggage, shopping bags, large cameras or other items that offer concealment.  You can take a camera that is out of the case and you are allowed a cell phone.  If you have it at the visitor center you will need store it for $3 per bag.
