The WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument is open. The Museums for the Arizona Memorial are still open as usual. The theater showing the film is still open as usual. The boats are still going out to the USS Arizona Memorial.
Due to cracking on the docking support structure on the Memorial, the National Park Service is not docking with the Memorial. The boats have a modified program where they circle the Memorial and the wreck of the USS Arizona, and provide some narration. In result of this modification you are able to see USS Battleship Missouri and USS Bowfin Submarine from close distance.
Thank you for your understanding.
