Pearl Harbor National Memorial Reopens Monday September 28, 2020.




The National Park Service announced that the Pearl Harbor National Memorial is reopening to the public on Monday, September 28, 2020.


This follows an emergency order that last shut the state’s most popular attraction on August 27, 2020 to stem the spread of COVID-19.

It was the second closure this year due to the pandemic. The first one began March 17, 2020 and lasted three months.

The reopening comes after state and county officials approved new orders that allow museums to reopen with certain restrictions.

There is no entrance fee at the Pearl Harbor National Memorial, which is open seven days a week from 7am to 5pm.  Visitors are encouraged to  take a Navy shuttle to visit the USS Arizona Memorial, one of our nation’s most revered war graves.  The boats run from 8am to 1pm every half hour.   Online reservations for $1 are available along with free walk on tickets.

The Pearl Harbor National Memorial also features two free museums,  paid audio tour and Virtual Reality experiences and our popular bookstore.

Due to low tourism numbers, parking is plentiful.

NPS will monitor the Oct. 15 start of a pre-testing program that will  allow travelers to bypass the 14-day quarantine. NPS has contingency plans in place to make sure local and federal safety guidelines are followed.
