This solemn USS Arizona memorial honors the 1,177 crewmen who perished in the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. Hear the recollections of dozens of survivors during a 90-minute audio tour.

The USS Arizona is the most visited attraction on Oahu and should be a "must-see” on your itinerary. The USS Arizona serves as the final resting place for many of the 1,177 crewmen killed on December 7, 1941.

The Arizona Memorial is also a memorial for all those that gave their lives on December 7, in Hawaii, Guam and Saipan. This poignant audio tour will give you a better understanding of the events of the ill-fated day that would forever change the course of world history.

Your pass gives you access to the award-winning USS Arizona Memorial audio tour. This 90-minute audio tour takes visitors to 28 destinations within the Park and is available in seven languages: English, French, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, German, and Spanish.

The professionally made audio tour at the USS Arizona Memorial is narrated by dozens of Pearl Harbor survivors and Jamie Lee Curtis, an award winning actress and daughter of Tony Curtis, who himself was a War World II veteran.
