AAA Editor Notes
USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, next to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center off SR 99, commemorates those who served in the “silent service.” The park centerpiece is the 1,500-ton USS Bowfin, also known as the “Pearl Harbor Avenger.” Launched in 1942, this Balao-class submarine made nine war patrols in the Pacific Ocean during WWII. The museum traces the history of the submarine force.

A theater in the park shows film footage from World War II and submarine-related videos. Other highlights include a periscope and conning tower viewing facility, a Japanese one-man “suicide submarine” from World War II and a memorial to the 52 U.S. submarines and more than 3,500 crewmen lost during the war.

Tickets are sold at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center and online.
