As summer begins and visitors return to the islands, Pearl Harbor National Memorial will extend its reservation window for USS Arizona Memorial Program reservations. Beginning on Monday, May 3, recreation.gov’s primary booking window for USS Arizona Memorial tickets will increase from one week in advance to eight weeks in advance.
This means that on May 3 at 3 p.m. (HST), tickets will release for up to eight weeks (56 days) in the future through June 28. Going forward, new tickets will release on this long-range rolling schedule, one day at a time. The secondary booking window, one day in advance will remain the same.
Summer is always a season of increased visitation at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. The park has transitioned to a touchless ticketing system managed by Recreation.gov. The walk-in first-come first-served ticket distribution program is no longer available. For the health and safety of our visitors, standby opportunities may not be available based on the day’s heat index and anticipated wait times of two to four hours for space available seating.
Pearl Harbor National Memorial, the visitor center, grounds, museums, and USS Arizona Memorial Program participation are free. Recreation.gov is Pearl Harbor National Memorial’s official reservation website for USS Arizona Memorial Programs; USS Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor Historic Sites (USS Arizona) - Recreation.gov. Check the website and social media channels for up-to-date information on trip planning tips.
Remember, recreate responsibly. To protect the health of those who live, work and visit America’s national parks, face masks are required in all areas of the visitor center campus between the parking lots and the shoreline. Authority: 36 CFR 1.5(a)(2) Masks are also required on all U.S. Navy transport vessels at all times.
