Pearl Harbor Visitor Center details for 75th anniversary events

The National Park Service and the United States Navy will host the 75th Anniversary Commemoration, known as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, on Wednesday, Dec. 7.

The commemoration will be held at Kilo Pier on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam from 7:45-9:15 a.m.

Free tickets for these seats will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 5:30 a.m.

Visitors without a ticket will be able to stand and watch the ceremony.

Keep in mind certain items are not allowed at the visitor center. View a full list here.
