Admission to the USS Arizona Memorial is free. There is no entrance or activity fee, nor is there a fee for the visitor’s center or the museum. Complimentary tickets for the timed programs to the memorial are given on a first-come, first-served basis at the front desk of the visitor center. These tickets are non-reservable, so visitors are advised to try for tickets early in the day. Queues are often fully formed by 8 am, and during the busy summer months, tickets oftentimes run out by noon. Visit a tour operator such as Pearl Harbor Tours to arrange reserved tickets through them for the memorial.
Once visitors receive their tickets, they will be assigned a program time. The Navy shuttle boat that take visitors out to the Arizona Memorial accommodate around 100 people, so guests should expect some delays.
In addition to the free tickets for the USS Arizona Memorial, visitors may also wish to purchase passes to visit the America-the-Beautiful–National Parks and Recreational Lands. These passes are available at the Honolulu Regional Office, as well as at most National Park sites and allow visitors access to all federal land management areas.
