Everything about the visit was excellent. The people were nice and helpful, there was plenty to see, well managed, excellent opportunities to see more than just the USS Arizona. It was sobering but very grateful to honor these brave men and women who fight for our freedom. Nice to see the Bowfin and missiles, and other things on display, as well as all the informational legends. Kid friendly. I would add one improvement, and that is your website and reservation system.

Excellent audio tour as you walk around the grounds of the Memorial. However, the website needs to state that it does not include the movie nor the boat trip out to the Arizona. Those have to be bought separately from the audio tour and need to be secured ahead of time. We raced over from the airport on a flight delay and were told the Arizona tickets were sold out. It's unclear from the website what is included.
