The National WWII Museum in New Orleans is hosting a tour this year to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the attacks on Hawaii’s Pearl Harbor. More than 2,000 Americans died in the attack by Japanese bombers that led to the U.S. entering the war.

Highlights in Honolulu include a full-day symposium at the Aloha Tower led by museum historians and faculty of Hawaii Pacific University; an excursion to Fort DeRussy, which houses the Hawaii Warfare exhibit and the Gallery of Heroes; and visits to Schofield Barracks, Wheeler Army Airfield and Hickam Field.

Travelers will also take part in the official 75th anniversary commemoration at the USS Arizona Memorial, which sits above the sunken battleship and the resting place of more than 1,000 service members who died in the attack.

The event will end with a private dinner and reception on the deck of the battleship Missouri, on which the Japanese signed surrender papers on Sept. 2, 1945.

Dates: Dec 1-8

Price: $8,995 per person, double occupancy; $10,990 for single occupancy. Includes ocean-view room at the Moana Surfrider, lunch daily, three evening events, nightly lectures, all ground transportation and entrance fees,
