The 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor: Why We Still Remember

75th ANNIVERSARY OF PEARL HARBORTo commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Museum is presenting a powerful exhibition through the Spring.

It chronicles what transpired before, during, and after the attack on Pearl Harbor, with rare insights into what the atmosphere was like in Japan leading up to “the day that will live in infamy.”

The exhibition includes the original first message warning all U.S. Navy ships: “AIRRAID ON PEARL HARBOR X THIS IS NO DRILL”; the Honolulu-Star Bulletin account of the attack on December 7th, 1941; Japanese postcards, photographs, and newspaper headlines celebrating the attack; and the first printed declaration of war by Japan on the U.S.
