Owner description: 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.

Wouldn't do this again - has historical value in being where World War 2 ended - but the thing that killed it for me was not the 25USD per ticket, but waiting for the shuttle bus to get out and back from Ford Island. We were lucky enough to get Toby, previously served on the Missouri as the Captain's butler,... More

The big MO is not to be missed when visiting the Arizona memorial. Its hard to believe the age and the service of this great ship. Not to mention that it was in active duty not that long ago after being decommissioned for 30 years. We used the audio tour (included in the ticket price) over the guided tour and... More

We took the tour that goes inside the Ship. It is maximum 10 people. The tour guide is a vet and was fantastic. You will learn incredible things about this ship and the war. We where very emotional and impressed. God blessed the people who fought for our freedom and still do. Do not miss it and support it so... More

You get to go inside the ship and see a lot. It's a historic site also because the agreement to end WWII was signed there.

Great tour of this massive vessel learning of it's historical involvement in the war. Felt a small connection when I discovered the surrender occurred on my birthday - 2nd September (though it was 23 years before I was born)

Well worth the effort to visit, could easily have spent more time on board. This attraction is likely only to get better as more of the ship gets open to the public.

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to post a review. We couldn't agree with you more as we are constantly opening up new areas of the ship as well as adding new exhibits. We hope to see you on board again soon! More

You receive a self-guided tour map to make your way through the battleship or you can join a guided tour free of charge. This is a very informative tour and there are options to see more of the ship if you have time to stay longer or take varying paths to spend less time at the memorial. I learned a... More

Found the 35min tour very worthwhile - our guide gave us a great intro the main events involving the battleship. We were then free to check out what we wished - didn't need the audio. Absolutely love the meanings behind the positioning of the mighty Mo .. and the thoughts behind how to share this all with us - the... More
