USS Arizona Relic Exhibit
The new USS Arizona Relic Exhibit opened on Tuesday, June 19, 2012. The new exhibit contains a relic from the USS Arizona. The Department of the Navy has donated this piece of American history for display and memorial purposes. The exhibits’ intent is to encourage the public to recall the noble sacrifice and loss of the 1,177 men killed aboard the USS Arizona during the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.
The museum selected to coincide the opening of the Arizona exhibit with her christening ninety-seven years ago on June 19, 1915.
