Pearl Harbor Tours

New Name, New Website for Arizona Memorial Museum Association

On June 1, 2010, the Arizona Memorial Museum Association made its own history when it officially changed its name to Pacific Historic Parks to better reflect its expanded support of four National Parks throughout the Pacific: World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument at Pearl Harbor, Kalaupapa National Historical Park on the island of Molokai, American Memorial Park in Saipan and War in the Pacific National Historical Park in Guam.

The nonprofit organization was formed in 1979 in association with the National Park Service to support and fund educational programs, museum exhibits and interpretive programs for the USS Arizona Memorial, which is part of the recently dedicated WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument. The monument also includes sites on Ford Island: the USS Oklahoma Memorial, USS Utah Memorial, and several historic Battleship Row mooring quays and CPO bungalows.

Over the last 31 years, the organization’s role has grown to include support of the three additional historic landmarks. Information about all four parks is available at PHP’s new website.

    My new novel about Oahu in the ’60’s includes a brief paraphrased excerpt of the
    narrative used in 1975 by Hilton Hawaiian Village’s purple catamaran that took daily trips out to thee Arizona Memorial.
    WHO can I contact to get permission to use my paraphrased version of the H.H’s
    narrative? Or do I REQUIRE permission?

    PLEASE direct this email to the right office or person who (if he/she can’t answer) , will point me in the right direction.
