The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center was opened to the public in 2010 as part of the newly-designated World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument. Since then, it has welcomed millions of tourists from all over the world every year. The center was built to further enhance the visitors’ Pearl Harbor Tour experience.
Book a Pearl Harbor Tour with us and we will take you to the most historic places in Honolulu City.
Featuring authentic wartime memorabilia and artifacts displays, memorials, and museums – the Visitor Center no doubt encourages thoughtful recollection of the tragic December 7, 1941 attack and how it changed the course of history forever.
There are two (2) museums in the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center you can explore. The museums tell the story of the Pearl Harbor attack and World War II. You can also visit the “Road to War” and “Attack” Exhibit Galleries which display several interactive exhibits such as the 23-minute documentary about the Pearl Harbor attack, historic photographs, battle artifacts, personal memorabilia and more. Don’t forget to stop by the Remembrance Circle exhibit. This exhibit pays tribute to those who lost their lives during the Japanese attack on December 7.
Also in the center is the Pacific Historic Parks bookstore, gift store, and the lovely waterfront promenade. Get a chance to meet some of the Pearl Harbor survivors when you visit the Visitor Center. They are present on most days and will be happy to sign autographs and share their story(ies) with the guests.
Pearl Harbor Visitor Center works in partnership with the National Park Services and Pacific Historic Parks, previously known as the Arizona Memorial Museum Association.
