Pearl Harbor Security Policies

By: J. Owen

Pearl Harbor is an active Naval Base. Security measures may be updated without notice as necessary. The following baggage and parcel control policy is currently in effect for all Pearl Harbor attractions:

Bags of any size are prohibited. This includes purses, luggage, backpacks, diaper bags, fanny packs, camera bags, shopping bags, large cameras, or other items that can offer concealment.

Because the above items are not allowed at any of the Pearl Harbor sites, it is recommended that you do not bring them. However, baggage storage is available for a fee.

Wheelchairs, strollers, walkers, canes, umbrellas, jackets, sweaters, small wallets, medication, small cameras and camcorders, cell phones, and small sealable beverage containers are permitted and subject to inspection.

Pets are not allowed under currentĀ Pearl Harbor security policies. Service animals are allowed.

The USS Oklahoma Memorial, Battleship Missouri, and Pacific Aviation Museum are located on Ford Island in Pearl Harbor. Driving to Ford island requires security clearance for drivers, passengers, and vehicles. Visitors can visit the Ford Island attractions on Authorized Tours.

OutdatedĀ Pearl Harbor Security Policies

Although you are no longer required to show ID at Pearl Harbor to visit the Arizona Memorial, it is important that you have ID with you. You may be denied entrance to Ford Island (Battleship Missouri and Pacific Aviation Museum) if you do not have your current ID.

Cameras are currently allowed in all portions of the Arizona Memorial program. Photos are not to be taken from the Admiral Clarey Bridge to Ford Island. You will be advised of this again before you cross the bridge. Security Policy
