Tree Of Life
One of the tallest and most impressive structures at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is the 40-foot Tree of Life monument between the two museums and the theater complex. This is one of the best locations in the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center to have your family photo.
The Tree of Life is referred to in the book of Genesis and is a life-giving tree that supports the physical and spiritual life of men and women. The Tree of Life at Pearl Harbor was created by the USS Arizona Memorial’s architect, Alfred Preis; this design is to inspire contemplation for the visitors that come to the Memorial. Preis’s Tree of Life design is featured on both side walls in the USS Arizona Memorial’s shrine room, allowing natural lighting to illuminate the names of these fallen heroes.
The USS Arizona Memorial Museum Store, with the approval of the National Park Service, created exclusive silver and gold Tree of Life pendants, earrings, bracelets, and wedding bands. This “Tree of Life Jewelry Collection” comes with Maui Diver’s 100% customer satisfaction guarantee and a lifetime warranty. This unique jewelry collection is not available in any other store in the world, so if you are looking for a special and meaningful gift item, check it out while you are at Pearl Harbor.
Each piece of Tree of Life jewelry comes with a National Park Service interpretative card explaining the importance of the Tree of Life for the battleship Arizona Memorial. Proceeds from this jewelry collection support the restoration, preservation, and educational programs at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center and the USS Arizona Memorial.
