Visiting Punchbowl? New hours will soon take effect

PUNCHBOWL (HawaiiNewsNow) - The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, also known as Punchbowl, is changing its daily visitation hours again.

Officials said starting Sept. 30, the new hours are from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Previous hours were 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for the latter half of 2016 through March 1, then changing to 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. from March through this month. Those hours were confusing to visitors and often miscommunicated to the public through unofficial websites and tour guides.

Office hours are still 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Monday through Friday.

Memorial Day visitation hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
