Listen to an excerpt of the USS Arizona Memorial Narrated Tour below:
There is a reason why the USS Arizona Memorial is the largest visitor destination in Hawaii. Millions of people from all over the world come to this majestic setting to see for themselves were World War II began for the United States on December 7, 1941. Our new $65 million Pearl Harbor Visitor Center at the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument features two new world class museums, theaters, audio tour and gift store, wayside exhibits, panoramic shoreline displays and five new parking lots.
Since guided tours are not available at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center or on the USS Arizona Memorial, we encourage all visitors to take our incredible USS Arizona Memorial Narrated Tour. This 2 1/2 hour, self-guided audio tour will provide you and your family an enriching and patriotic experience that you will never forget. This narrated tour is a must do activity at the Visitor Center and is hosted by famous actress Jamie Lee Curtis, the National Park Service’s historians and dozens of Pearl Harbor Survivors.
The USS Arizona Memorial Narrated Tour takes visitors to 29 important locations throughout the Visitor Center, on the boat shuttle and upon the USS Arizona Memorial itself. After the boat tour to the Memorial, the Narrated Tour continues along the shoreline for the Path of Attack tour.
The USS Arizona Memorial Narrated Tour is available in English, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, French, Russian, Italian, German and Spanish, and will even automatically translate the National Park Service’s 23 minute documentary movie into the visitor's language.
