While there is no official dress code for the museums and parks of Pearl Harbor, we do require that guests are appropriately dressed while visiting. Visitors must be wearing shirts that do not show excessive skin. Bathing suits are not acceptable, nor are inappropriate t-shirts. Flip flops and sandals are permitted.
We understand that you are visiting Pearl Harbor on your vacation. However, guests are asked to remember that it is a solemn site where many men and women died serving our country. The USS Arizona Monument is also a cemetery, where more than 1,000 lives perished and still remain. Please dress respectfully.
We suggest that you choose clothing with pockets, such as cargo shorts, because you will not be permitted to carry your personal items in a bag of any kind. A light jacket is also recommended because it can get cold and rainy in Hawaii. Guests sometimes remark that the theater is chilly as well.
Military servicemen and women visiting Pearl Harbor are within Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam bounds. Navy personnel will enforce the military regulations around military dress. Uniformed military visitors will be required to have Class “B” dress or better to board the shuttle to the USS Arizona. You are not permitted to wear battle dress uniforms on the USS Arizona. You are also free to dress as a civilian on your Pearl Harbor visit.
