A slice of art deco history that is in dire need of some serious restoration work. The front has had some patching but the pool deck and walls are literally falling to pieces and it is likely to get worse when you look at how...More

This is an interesting War Memorial of World War 1, but it was closed off and looked to be in significant disrepair. And surprisingly it has a plaque on it giving thanks for people leading the restoration in 2000. Hard to believe it was actually...More

We love history and really enjoyed visiting Pearl Harbor. We took our son and we all enjoyed seeing the Arizona memorial and we learned a lot from the audio tour. We also toured the Bowfin submarine, which gave us a real appreciation for submariners.

The grounds are very nice and large. The façade is classic and very cool. Problem is it's deteriorating and in need of repair. The locked gates keep visitors out which is sad to see. It's surprising to see a nice monument and aquatic center like...More
