In remembrance of the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor, the AZCM is unveiling its special collection of rarely seen USS Arizona artifacts, including a never before displayed U.S. Flag rescued from the USS Arizona. In addition, for one day only, the Capitol Museum will display several unique items including a 1918 seaman’s diary; brass and silver Navy bugle; 1940 handmade USS Arizona baseball team pennant and a historic piece of the U.S.S. Arizona itself.

This ongoing partnership provides the museum with a permanent online portal to showcase the gems of our collection, starting with the USS Arizona Silver Service and many other artifacts from the collection.

The Arizona Capitol Museum is in some ways a home away from home for members of the Pearl Harbor and World War II service community. The museum is the only place outside of Hawaii with artifacts and permanent exhibits, including the ship’s silver service, dedicated to the USS Arizona, and its loss on December 7, 1941.
