Message from the HTA Regarding the Federal Government Shutdown and its Effect on Hawaii's Visitor Attractions
We would like to thank our visitor industry and community for their help in continuing to share the aloha spirit with our visitors during the federal government shutdown. While some of our federal attractions remain closed, we appreciate everyone’s kokua in informing guests and offering alternative plans.
As a reminder, all of the state and county parks, beaches and trails remain open and none of the state’s airports have been affected. However, the following National Parks and federal facilities in Hawaii remain closed including:
• WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument in Pearl Harbor
• USS Arizona Memorial
• USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park
• USS Oklahoma Memorial
Note: The Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, Battleship Missouri Memorial, and the National Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) will remain open.
• Haleakala National Park
• Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary Visitor Center
• Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge
• Kalaupapa National Historical Park (some private tours and air service still operating)
• Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge
• Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail
• Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
• Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park
• Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument Visitor Center
• Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site
• Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park
The HTA will continue to monitor the federal government shutdown and its impact on Hawaii’s visitor industry. We hope that a compromise will be reached soon and this shutdown will have a limited effect on our community and the thousands of federal workers here in the state.
