The Battleship Missouri Memorial is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during the summer months (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. the rest of the year). General admission, which includes choice of an optional tour, is $25 per adult and $13 per child (4-12). Military, kama'aina (local resident) and school group pricing is available.The Battleship Missouri Memorial, located a mere ship's length from the USS Arizona Memorial, completes a historical visitor experience that begins with the "day of infamy" and the sinking of the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor and ends with Imperial Japan's unconditional surrender aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.Following an astounding career that spans five decades and three wars, from World War II to the Korean conflict to the Liberation of Kuwait, the "Mighty Mo" was decommissioned and donated to the USS Missouri Memorial Association, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which operates the battleship as a historic attraction and memorial. The Association oversees her care and preservation with the support of visitors, memberships, grants and the generosity of donors.

The Pearl Harbor site should be included on everyone's Itinerary. There are 4 separate exhibits which I found quite confusing when doing my research - USS Arizona, USS Bowfin (Submarine), South Pacific Aviation Museum and the USS Missouri Battleship where you can stand on the spot on the deck where the World War 2 Peace Treaty was signed! You can... More

A great tour of a battleship of great historical significance. The plaque identifying the exact location where General McArthur received the Surrender Documents from the Japanese was quite moving and emotional. A stark reminder of the loss of life and the futility of war.

Very impressive battleship. There are also free tours once you hop aboard. Just look for the tour guides and hop along with one. Inside of the battleship is very well put together and extremely large!!!

We really enjoyed learning about the history of the Missouri. The ship was so well maintained and ripe with WWII legacies. The USS Missouri travelled in WWII, the Korean war, and recently in the Persian gulf. It took about 2 hours to go through the decks, read the plaques and experience the surroundings. Our tour guide was disappointing as he... More

One of the must see attractions when in Hawaii. People of all cultures will be there and you will find yourself involved with the history of the memorial.

We spent the day at the Pearl Harbour sites. A very well-organized site with the choice of a guided tour, self-guided audio tour, or "off you go". We were lucky to be there at the same time as some kind of school band competition - excellent soundtrack! There are many stairs and ladders at this site but my husband was... More

My husband, daughter 10 and I recently went on one of the specialty tours of the Missouri. It cost a bit more but I always find it more interesting to learn about and see what life was like and how the ship worked, which is exactly what this tour did. It lasted about 90 minutes. There are narrow areas, stairs... More

I'm not a history buff, but this was fascinating. We were able to get into a guided tour and learned so much more in a short time. After the tour, we continued to explore the boat and learn more. I could definitely have spent more time here.

Just the sheer size of the Missouri is awesome. We spent about 1 & 1/2 on the ship both on the upper decks & below decks.

Definitely recommend this if you are visiting Pearl Harbour. Great guide. Some narrow corridors. It is possible to walk up to the bridge if you want but for anyone with mobility difficulties the decks are well maintained and easy to walk around.
