Pearl Harbor’s museums and memorials debuted a two-day ticket package earlier this month, now offering visitors a chance to take in the destination’s range of historical sites with more flexibility.
“Pearl Harbor Historic Sites are a unique collection of iconic museums, memorials and exhibits that, for many visitors to Hawaii, offer a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Michael A. Carr, president and COO of the Battleship Missouri Memorial, which opened in 1999 in Pearl Harbor. “With the new Passport to Pearl Harbor, they can now be sure to visit all that Pearl Harbor has to offer at their own pace, allowing even more immersion into this important historic destination.”
Drawing more than 1.5 million visitors annually, Pearl Harbor is often a one-day stop for travelers looking to squeeze all of the destination’s rich history into one visit. But thanks to dramatic renovations at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center and expanded programs and exhibits at the nearby Battleship Missouri Memorial, the Pacific Aviation Museum and the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum, there’s far too much content to absorb in just one afternoon.
Now for $65, $35 for children under age 12, patrons can purchase the Passport to Pearl Harbor package at the visitor’s center ticket window, offering individuals two-day access to the destination’s museums and memorials and use of the comprehensive audio tours at each site. And the pass does not need to be used on consecutive days: Guests can return up to seven days after their first visit.
If purchased separately, one-day passes to the attractions mentioned above would cost $115.
According to the National Park Service, more than 5,000 people attended the ceremony commemorating the 70th anniversary attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7 this year, including 120 Pearl Harbor survivors.
