Pearl Harbor is a destination that is designed to be family-friendly. The only thing that will dictate which tour to take is the age and interest level of your children, which determines how long they can appreciate a history site. Our Pearl Harbor Memorial Tour is a good option for families with older children who want to be able to see all of Pearl Harbor in one day, leaving room for more activities in their vacation. A good medium-sized tour is the the Remember Pearl Harbor tour, which allows you to see both the USS Arizona and the USS Missouri, which are two of our most popular exhibits. The shortest tour we offer best for very small children or when travelling with a baby, is the Pearl Harbor and Honolulu City Tour.
Help you children make the most out of their trip to Pearl Harbor by preparing in advance. Watch movies such as Pearl Harbor, From Here to Eternity, and Tora, Tora, Tora. Read books to help give them context of what happened at Pearl Harbor and how it was important to WWII. Not only will they learn more while visiting Pearl Harbor, but they will be more interested in the exhibits.
Don’t forget to buy you kids a souvenir before you leave!
