Pearl Harbor Historic Landmark Opens

Pearl Harbor Historic Landmark Opens

HONOLULU, Hawaii - Towering 15 stories and 165 feet tall, the Ford Island Control Tower is an iconic structure that offers an unparalleled 360-degree view of the Pearl Harbor aviation battlefield. Under construction during the December 7, 1941 attack, the tower stands as a silent witness to the day that launched America into WWII. The newly restored Ford Island Control Tower observation deck at the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum opens to the public on May 29.

Top of the Tower Tour is a guided experience that includes access to the historic Operations Building, the Firehouse Exhibit, and an elevator ride to the upper cab of the control tower – the pinnacle of the tour. Historical videos and pictures show the impact and aftermath of the attack in a stunning drama that gives a new understanding of the "day which will live in infamy."

Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum is located on America's WWII aviation battlefield, one of the few places in our country's nearly 250-year history where America was attacked by a foreign enemy on its own soil. From the strafing marks on the grounds to the incredible views of the most famous battleship in American history, the view from the tower is not to be missed.
