Pearl Harbor - National Park - Status?

So... Does anyone know FOR CERTAIN if Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona Memorial, the Visitor Center, the USS Missouri, etc... is now closed due to the government shutdown?

The website is essentially offline.

All parks operated by the National Park Service are closed.

But congressional tee-off times have been secured and remain intact; luckily the best courses are not operated by the National Park Service . . .

Even the Arizona Memorial website was down with a message posted when I checked earlier today.

We are headed to Hilton Head and planning to go to Fort Pulaski. Their FB page confirms that they are shut down. Here is the link provided to the National Parks Service:

Actually, the Battleship Missouri is privately run, and it remains open per their website (www.ussmissouri.org). It says there is limited parking, and the shuttle is running as normal. I don't know for certain about the USS Bowfin, but I'm pretty sure the Nat'l Park Service only operates the USS Arizona Memorial and the Visitor Center.

We'll be there later this month and have tickets for the USS Arizona, so I am hopefully the Nat'l Parks will open by then.

Right. However, what I am asking is which of the above are part of a national park an therefore affected.

Yes, I saw that right before posting this thread.

Thank you. This is the information I was looking to obtain. I appreciate it.

The Valor in the Pacific Museum, which is located at Pearl Harbor, is also operated by the National Park Service. I doubt that it would be open to guests until the Department of Interior receives funding.

Is that the same thing as the USS Arizona visitor center? If so, then yes, it is closed. The Pacific Aviation Museum remains open.

We have tickets to Pearl Harbor at Christmas time. We purchased them from the government web site, will it open or get our money back? This is our first trip to Hawaii and looking forward to this tour.

Heaven help the USA if the shutdown lasts until Christmas...
It would seem reasonable that ticket costs would be refunded but probably not online reservation fees. But who knows?

Since the only cost is the convenience fee charged then probably no. But I wouldn't be worrying about them still being shut down at Christmas - or rather you'll probably have greater worries if they are!

We were scheduled to go in less than two weeks and our tickets were $113 for two people for the package we reserved. A little more than a convenience fee charge for ours but hopefully everything will be resolved by then.
