Visiting Pearl Harbour is a whole day affair. It opens at 07:00 but you go stand in line a bit before that to get the daily free tickets to the Arizona Memorial. You then have until 17:00 to see the multiple museums, bowfin submarine, take a bus to ford island, see the Missouri (which in itself is over 2H if you do the great 90mn engineer tour), and then hurry on to the Air Museum before it closes at 17:00. It's barely doable in a day.

Back on land, onto the museums:
suicide torpedoes, ugh...
The Bowfin is a nice typical submarine visit:
it is still an active military base
Then onto Ford island, by bus, onto the mighty Missouri where we took the 90mn private engineering tour
they have their own private neighborhoods there
the guns are big

Then, we had to hurry on to the Pacific Aviation Msseum to see what we could before it closed:

And that was it for our Pearl Harbour visit. I now agree that it's hard to see it all in one day :)
