We love history and really enjoyed visiting Pearl Harbor. We took our son and we all enjoyed seeing the Arizona memorial and we learned a lot from the audio tour. We also toured the Bowfin submarine, which gave us a real appreciation for submariners.

The Natatorium itself is a beautiful edifice and a wonderful but often forgotten War Memorial. While one can no longer swim in this gorgeous ocean pool, the site still provides a fantastic view of Waikiki especially at sunrise when the sun's rays first start to...More

Worn out and needs a facelift. somehow the state needs to get funding. This is a historical site with a lot of local memories. Can be one of the TOP attractions when completed.

The grounds are very nice and large. The façade is classic and very cool. Problem is it's deteriorating and in need of repair. The locked gates keep visitors out which is sad to see. It's surprising to see a nice monument and aquatic center like...More

Too bad we can’t walk around the inside of the Natatorium which has a large Olympic sized, ocean water pool. This was a favorite place for locals to swim in. They had a 3-level diving/jumping platform. There are concrete bleachers for watching former events. Alas,...More
