Bishop Museum: (HI) Polynesians, sailing by wave patterns and using stick maps, reached the Hawaiian Islands. Major museum but with small maritime presence.
U.S.S. Arizona Memorial (HI) The Memorial straddles the sunken hull of the USS Arizona commemorating the December 7, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
U.S.S. Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park (HI) Pearl Harbor, Hawaii is home to the Historic WWII submarine USS Bowfin (SS-287) where she is preserved and interprets the history of the US Submarine Force.
USS Missouri: (HI) The USS Missouri Memorial Association, Inc. (MMA) is the caretaker of the historic Battleship Ex-USS Missouri (Battleship Missouri Memorial) now permanently located at Pier F-5 on Ford Island which was built specifically for the ship.
USS Utah (BB-31): (HI) The USS Utah (AG16) rests on the west side of Ford Island in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The USS Arizona is the most remembered and revered but the Utah still remains in obscurity under the Arizona's shadow. I hope to put this ship in the limelight with this site. The USS Utah Memorial commemorating the loss of ship and men is a 40-by- 15-foot concrete platform connected to the northwest shore of Ford island by a 70-foot walkway. The memorial is about a mile from the Arizona Memorial. A Naval color guard raises the flag each morning to honor the sailors entombed in the UTAH. Although 1.5 million people annually visit the ARIZONA, few have visited the Utah.
Village Museum (HI)
Whalers Village Museum tells the story of long voyages, the dangers
of the hunt and the sailors' longing to be safe at home. The Museum
recounts the history of Lahaina's whaling era from 1825 to 1860.
