Sequestration limits access to Pearl Harbor’s USS Arizona Memorial


Hours of operation have been reduced at the USS Arizona Memorial in Oahu’s Pearl Harbor as a result of the recent sequestration. Tours of the ship will be available from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. daily; prior to the federal funding cuts, the Arizona had been open until 3 p.m. each day.

The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center and other historic sites will remain open as normal.

Hours of operation are as follows:
USS Arizona Memorial: 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Pearl Harbor Visitor Center: 7 a.m. to  4:30 p.m.
Battleship Missouri Memorial: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park: 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Unfortunately, the USS Arizona Memorial will see a reduction in visiting hours,” Mike Carr, president and COO of the Battleship Missouri Memorial, said in a statement. “However, this provides a great opportunity for guests to gain the full Pearl Harbor experience by visiting the Arizona early and using the rest of the day to explore the other historic sites.”
