The visitor center and the USS Arizona Memorial are located on the U.S. Navel Base at Pearl Harbor. The USS Arizona is the final resting place for many of the ship's 1,177 crewmen who lost their lives on December 7, 1941. The 184 ft. long Memorial structure spanning the mid-portion of the sunken battleship consists of three main sections; the entry and assembly rooms, a central area designed for ceremonies and general observation; and the shrine room, where the names of those killed on the Arizona are engraved on the marble wall. A must see while you are in Oahu.
