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.

Museum only $6; $3 (ages 4-12). Museum and submarine $15; $8 (ages 60+, Hawai‘i residents and military with ID); $7 (ages 4-12). Under age 4 are not permitted on the Bowfin but are allowed in the museum and theater. Combination tickets with other Pearl Harbor sites may be purchased online in advance at
Daily 7-5. Last tour of the submarine and museum begins 30 minutes before closing. Allow 1 hour minimum.
