Memorial and the Bowfin Submarine Museum lay fallow at Pearl Harbor’s
historic Halawa Landing. A little over six acres of empty, neglected,
cracked concrete, it was truly an eye sore. Broken glass and debris
was littered everywhere. It was also known for its high crime rate.

About Our Center
The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center
is a joint venture between Ford Island Properties LLC and the Pearl
Harbor Visitor Center, Inc. (PHVC) to provide tourist services at
the Halawa Landing site.
PHVC is located on a waterfront site
between the USS BOWFIN Memorial and the Navy shuttle to the USS
ARIZONA. The Center was established to provide much needed services
such as food, baggage storage, tours, transportation, and sheltered
resting areas for the 1.6 million annual visitors (4,500 per day)
that come to Pearl Harbor to pay their respects.
The first phase of this project
consists of a tented structure that includes tables and chairs and
other conveniences to make the visitor experience at Pearl Harbor
more comfortable. Service vendors brought in under this arrangement
offer their products in a tasteful 1942 WWII ambience.
Plans are underway for a permanent
PHVC works closely with the National
Park Service, the USS MISSOURI Memorial Association, and the USS
BOWFIN Memorial in developing Halawa Landing in a manner that both
respects the environment of the memorials and creates for the visitor
a lasting and poignant memory of Pearl Harbor.
