U S S Arizona Memorial Activities

USS Arizona Memorial Tour Ticket (NPS Photo) The interpretive program consists of a 23-minute documentary film, which is introduced by a National Park Service ranger or a Pearl Harbor survivor, and a U.S. Navy shuttle boat to the USS Arizona Memorial. Visitors depart for the memorial immediately after the film. Visitors disembark on the memorial and return to the visitor center with their program group. The free, first-come, first-served program tickets highlight 10 individual acts of valor that were conducted across the island on December 7, 1941. The tickets give visitor's a personal memento of their USS Arizona Memorial experience.

Visitors may choose to enhance their USS Arizona Memorial visit by renting an audio headset for a nominal fee. The audio headset program takes visitors to 23 destinations, providing explanations to the various artifacts and displays found at the USS Arizona Memorial. The tour is narrated by Academy Award winner and U.S. Navy veteran Ernest Borgnine and includes excerpts from USS Arizona Memorial historian Daniel Martinez. In addition, several Pearl Harbor survivors reflect on their personal experiences, giving visitors a human connection to the "date which will live in infamy." The state of the art MP3 audio program is available in seven languages: English, French, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, German and Spanish.
