About Pearl Harbor National Memorial
Located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii in the United States, the Pearl Harbor National Memorial covers an area of 21.3 acres, and stands built in remembrance of the Pearl Harbor Attack by the Japanese in 1941. The memorial site is a national historic landmark, along with the nine other historic sites, including the USS Arizona Memorial, the USS Oklahoma Memorial, and the USS Utah Memorial, on the Island of Oahu. The Pearl Harbor site is the most visited tourist attraction in Hawaii, and features two memorial galleries, exhibits, a short movie about Pearl Harbor, and officer’s bungalows.
The purpose behind instituting the Pearl Harbor Memorial is to connect the visitors with the historical events of World War II, and to honor the brave souls, who valiantly fought the Japanese strike at Pearl Harbor. Designed by Honolulu architect Alfred Preis and built in 1962, the National Memorial attracts 2 million visitors annually, and the site of the sunken remains of the USS Arizona battleship, stands declared as a National historic site.
Uniquely designed, the memorial takes the shape of a bridge, floating above the sunken remains, and can easily accommodate 200 numbered visitors, per slot. The floating bridge-like structure measures 184 feet long, with a sag in the middle, and classified into three zones, the entrance, the central assembly, and the shrine. There are seven large windows on the ceiling and 21 small windows, in the central assembly room, and has an opening on the floor, revealing the sunken remains of the ship.
Notable historical artifacts at the Memorial Hall include the ship’s anchor, the bells, and the marble wall at the shrine room, inscribed with the names of the fallen soldiers. The Memorial Hall, managed by the National Park Service, has a visitor center and a museum with outdoor exhibits, free for all to visit, and the best season to visit the Pearl Harbor Memorial, would be the spring, Christmas break, and the summer as the weather is pleasant all year round.
Open from 7:00am-5:00pm every day, the Memorial Hall remains closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day, and the access to the Memorial Hall, is via a U.S Navy ship or boat from the Pearl Harbor, and allows only 1,300 tickets per day, to visit the Memorial Hall. The tickets are available at the visitor center, and only a certain number of tickets get timed access per slot, with audio guided tours, and a 20-minute documentary about the Pearl Harbor Memorial.
