Exactly 75 years after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, The National WWII Museum returns to the sites that defined "a date which will live in infamy."
A four-part educational symposium sets the stage, discussing the days leading up to the attack, all set at historic oceanfront Aloha Tower. The symposium will be filled with captivating lectures—from both Museum historians and Hawai'i Pacific University faculty—divided into four sessions.
Tour highlights include access to important historic sites, a visit to the USS Arizona Memorial, a ceremony commemorating the 75th anniversary of the attacks, and a private, catered dinner on the deck of the USS Missouri.
On December 7, 2016—the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks—The National WWII Museum and New Orleans PBS member station WYES will broadcast two live, interactive, student webcasts focusing on the events of that momentous day.
Remember Pearl Harbor—How Students Like YOU Experienced the Day of Infamy will give students across the country in grades 5–8 the chance to watch live as two student reporters give updates from New Orleans and Hawaii. Teachers, register your class now for this free program.
