Sorry, but purses fall under the category of bags. The rule is any bag or container that provides concealment.
You can put essentials into a small clear plastic bag to take with you. This is a bag that has been accepted by security.
We highly recommend wearing clothing with pockets for your essentials.
If you have a medical need, notify the staff at the security checkpoint.
A storage facility operated by the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park is available in the immediate area of the entrance to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. There is a nominal storage fee of $4 per bag. The storage facility is in operation daily 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Visitors may use the same bag storage for visits to all Pearl Harbor Historic Sites. We highly recommend that you do not bring bags.
