Here Are Some Points Of Interest That You Will See On Your Tour
Tree of Life
The tree of life is a sculpture in Pearl Harbor located at the Pearl Harbor Visitor’s Center just outside of the “Road to War exhibit gallery.” The sculpture was designed by Alfred Preis, who also designed the USS Arizona Memorial. The sculpture is meant to be a symbol of renewal and inspire contemplation. While you are at Pearl Harbor, be sure to check out this unique work of art. Don’t forget to also visit the exhibit galleries “Road to War” and “Attack.”
When you arrive at the Arizona Memorial, walk to the ramp from the boat dock and enter the Arizona Memorial. There is a limited time on the Memorial, and people will move from the entrance to the far end of the Memorial. On the way to the far side, take some time to look at the battleship USS Missouri, which is docked near the Arizona Memorial. Some portions of the ship are still visible above water. These are parts of the superstructure, the remains of the number 2 turret, and the number 3 turret barbette. You may notice an orange buoy to either side of the Memorial.
Arizona Memorial Boat Ride
Once you leave the theater, you will be directed down a ramp to get to the boat dock. The only way to get to the Arizona Memorial is by boat. Two shuttle boats rotate between the Visitor’s Center and Arizona Memorial every 15 minutes. While the National Park Service manages the Visitor’s Center and Arizona Memorial, the US Navy operates the shuttle boats. Every day, the Navy supplies the boats and sailors that shuttle the visitors to and from the USS Arizona Memorial.
Across from the submarine, USS Bowfin, is the Submarine Museum. This museum is dedicated to educating people on the history of submarine warfare throughout history. The museum houses over 1,000 artifacts from submarines that served in the US Navy. Including battle flags and ship’s bells. The museum’s primary focus is to educate guests on the role that US Navy submarines played in WWII. Also housed within the museum are more recent artifacts, such as a disassembled submarine-launched ballistic missile.
