It's a much better experience than you think. The park rangers are very friendly, very informative, and the whole experience is pretty cool and surreal. I would take the time if you've never been as it can be a quick educational experience while you're at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. It can be part of a very interesting day! 🤙✌️
What a great spot and location to tour. To be on the actual vessel of the signing of Japan's surrender with the supreme commander Douglas McArthur on board. To be able to walk on the actual deck(s) for when that day took place. It was just and outstanding day. You will see so many things walking around the big decks. The big mighty guns and seeing just how big they are. Looking out over the sides at the ports and to the USS Arizona site. You will enjoy your time and a must see event while visiting. You will not be disappointed. Also, the steep stairs are hard to descend or ascend for those with bad knees or hips. On going to the surrender deck they do have handicap accessibility by means of an elevator for those wanting to go to the deck. I almost forgot, they have (copy of course) the actual signing of Japan's surrender on deck to view. Again, you will enjoy.
