Pearl Harbor Historic Sites announce launch of new website
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii— The Pearl Harbor Historic Sites has launched its new website, PearlHarborHistoricSites.org. The website features descriptions containing historical information, tour operation and other facts on all four Pearl Harbor historic sites and also includes a calendar of events, map and tips on how to plan your visit.
The partnership between the USS Arizona Memorial, Battleship Missouri Memorial, USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park and the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor allows the website to serve as a portal for package deals and exclusive specials, saving guests time and money. For those interested in the whole Pearl Harbor experience the website features the new “Passport to Pearl Harbor” ticket options. The one day Passport to Pearl Harbor provides access to all primary Pearl Harbor historic sites for just $55 per adult and $30 per child. A two day Passport to Pearl Harbor is available for $65 per adult and $35 per child and is valid for seven days. Passport to Pearl Harbor passes include the USS Arizona Memorial Audio Tour, and admission to the USS Bowfin Submarine, BattleshipMissouri Memorial, and the Pacific Aviation Museum.
“No longer will guests have to visit four or more websites to get information about Pearl Harbor. PearlHarborHistoricSites.org creates a central hub for those who want to learn more about the sites and plan their Pearl Harbor experience. With all the information in one place, it takes a lot of the guess work out of planning a visit,” said Michael A. Carr, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Battleship Missouri Memorial. “With four historical sites for guests to explore, visitors can easily spend a full day or even two exploring the historic sites at Pearl Harbor. The Passport to Pearl Harbor gives people more flexibility to experience all the sites and offers a better value than if each site was purchased separately.”
About the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites
Welcoming more than 1.6 million visitors each year, the Pearl Harbor attractions include several independent memorials and museums — some under the purview of the U.S. National Park Service and others operated by private, nonprofit organizations. Together, and in partnership with Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, they carry forth the legacies of some of our nation’s most treasured icons. Although Pearl Harbor is one historic destination, there are four distinct destinations to visit, each with its own story to tell. Each attraction is as compelling as the next and none that the visitor would want to miss.
WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument
(USS Arizona, USS Oklahoma and USS UtahMemorials)
The USS Arizona, USS Oklahoma and USS Utah Memorials are operated and maintained by the National Park Service as part of the recently designed WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument. The three ships’ memorials honor and commemorate all members of the U.S. Armed Forces and civilians who gave their lives to their country during the attack on the island of Oahu and Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Visitors to the USS Arizona Memorial take a Navy launch to the memorial between 8 am. and 3 pm. The USS Oklahoma Memorial is located on Ford Island next to the Battleship Missouri and can be accessed via the Battleship Missouri Memorial shuttle bus. Access to the USS Utah Memorial is limited to those with military IDs. The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is open daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission and parking is free.
