Highlights from Pearl Harbor tours

The USS Arizona Memorial is just one of the many historic landmarks to be seen while on Pearl Harbor tours. Start your day off at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center with the intriguing attractions taking a look at before, during, and after the war.
Looking at the events on both sides of the Pacific leading up to the war, the museums at the visitors center show you what it was like to live in the time of World War II. Before taking the ferry out the the Arizona, watch a solemn film featuring footage from the actual attack. Moored just off the Visitor Center is the USS Bowfin Submarine. Known at the “Pearl Harbor Avenger,” explore the sub which stuck fear into the hearts of the Imperial Japanese Navy.
On Pearl Harbor’s Ford Island are even more historic sites. Home to amazing attractions like the Battleship USS Missouri and the Pacific Aviation Museum, a visit to Ford Island is an exciting way to experience Pearl Harbor’s history. Explore the decks of America’s most famous battleship, the USS Missouri. See the massive 16-inch guns, stand on the surrender deck where the war with Japan officially ended, and see parts of the ship that were in the blockbuster movie Battleship.
The Pacific Aviation Museum is truly a historical wonder. Located inside hangars which came under Japanese attack, walls and windowpanes are still riddled with bullet holes from over 70 years ago. Home to restored military aircraft from over a half-century of military aviation, history comes to life looking at the exhibits of the Pacific Aviation Museum.
