USS Arizona certainly had the greatest loss of lives, almost 1200, and maybe because of that it has the biggest memorial in all Pearl Harbor area.
Imo, USS Oklahoma memorial, another destroyed ship with its servicemen is maybe smaller than it should be, like a second grade one. It consists of equal white marble columns with victim names inscribed on them.
It's located by the spot where the shuttle bus leaves you for the USS Missouri and many people simply overlook it. From the whole bus only another couple and myself visited it.

I have visited a few retired aircraft carriers and battleships, but none come close to the experience I had on the USS Missouri. The visit began with a 35 minute tour and narration by a little Japanese woman who had an immense amount of knowledge about the vessel and its history. I could have listened to her for another hour but, alas, she needed to go back and get another group for its tour. Afterward, the tour is self-led, and I’ve never seen a retired vessel with so much of its interior accessible to visitors. I explored every nook and cranny, read most of the placards and watched all the videos and interviews along the way. (To read everything would probably take 3-4 hours; there’s much information provided.)

The ship, itself, is an amazing piece of engineering and manufacturing. It’s impossible not to be awed by the scope of what this magnificent machine represents. The fact that it was pulled out of mothballs under the Reagan administration and underwent 8 months of refurbishment and modernization makes the story even more compelling.

There's a wonderfulness to having the (sunken) USS Arizona lined up nose-to-nose with the USS Missouri: from the tragic beginning to the triumphant end of the U.S. involvement in World War II. I got a lump in my throat. It was among my favorite experiences in Oahu.

This, combined with the Arizona memorial and Missouri make for a better understanding of that important time. This gives a much more complete picture because it hits at the enormity of the destruction and the enormity of the effort to recover from it.

This memorial is under rated, almost forgotten. It is sandwiched between the USS Arizona and the USS Missouri, just outside of the gate to the Missouri. It is something to look at before or after seeing the mighty Mo.

USS Oklahoma memorial is next to the USS Missouri. USS Oklahoma is a less covered Battleship casualty of the Pearl Harbor attack. She was also sunk on December 7 1941.

This is so worthwhile to take a few moments tp pay respects, to the ship that suffered the second highest number of casualties in the raid

Sitting just in front of the entrance to the USS Missouri on Ford Island, this memorial doesn't have the beauty of the Arizona memorial, but it is moving nonetheless. Each marker has the name of one of the 429 sailors who died in the attack, and the rows of them remind you of a cemetery.

A rather deteriorating memorial to the brave victims on the Oklahoma. Glad it's there but nothing much to see

Visited the 2nd Friday in December. The Memorial is just behind the bus stop for the entrance to the Missouri Battleship. The exhibit is free and can easily be seen either before getting on the bus or just after getting off. The names of the fallen are honorably recognized with over 400 marble posts honoring their names. My visit lasted about 20-30 minutes as I just viewed the names and read the plaque honoring them. I found it to be a haunting reminder of the bravery and sacrifice of the events on Dec. 7th, 1941.
