SCHOOL VISITS

Submerge yourself in the history of submarines! Climb aboard the historic World War II submarine USS Bowfin, nicknamed “The Pearl Harbor Avenger.” See how confining and demanding the life of the undersea warrior was. Self-guided tours of Bowfin and our fully air-conditioned submarine museum await you and your students.

  • School group admission fees are $3.00 per student through high school, and $3.00 per accompanying adult.
  • We suggest a ratio of at least 1 adult per group of 15 high school (or younger) students.
  • We are open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., except for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
  • Please allow 90 minutes for your visit.
  • Homeschoolers, scouts, adult education groups, Road Scholars, and other educationally based organizations are welcome, as well.

Schools often combine visits to Bowfin Park with the Arizona Memorial or our other Pearl Harbor Historic Partners – the Battleship Missouri Memorial and the Pacific Aviation Museum. We even have a “Spend the day, stay the night” program – groups visit all four historic sites and sleep aboard the “Mighty Mo.”
