World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument

A tribute to the 1,177 crew members who died on the USS Arizona during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Two museums, outdoor exhibits, a free tour and movie: all telling, together, the story of our history as a living, multi-faceted narrative — one to be seen, heard, explored, and experienced from within. This immersive campus includes the USS Arizona Memorial, USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park, the Battleship Missouri Memorial, and the Pacific Aviation Museum.
