General admission, which includes choice of an optional tour, is $22 per adult and $11 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. « less

Really enjoyed this, to see where they surrender was completed kind of put a complete end to the day & occasion. USS Arizona Memorial where it all started to then come to this was like the two bookends to the World War. So much to see & take in, truly interesting, however the young man who was out guide was...

If you are a 2nd world war history buff this is a definite to see, we choose to walk around and explore the ship by ourselves but you can also have a guided tour which explains all there is to know.

To stand on the mighty Mo and take in Pearl Harbour is fantastic. As the guide says in one view you can see the start of WW2 for the US (the Arizona) and the end of it (the Misouri) You can go all over the boat above and below decks and is a must do in Hawaii.

Granted history took place aboard the "Mo" (yes, Douglas MacArthur stood right there) but the reality is the ship was refitted for later duty in the seventies and eighties; so if your were in the Navy during those decades (which I was) then this is a walk down memory lane for you. If you have kids this is a great... More

I've have been to Pearl on another trip to Honolulu and visited the Arizona on a tour. I didn't get a chance to visit the Missouri until this trip and boy was I glad I made the effort. This battleship has a wonderful history and is a pleasure to explore. It was my first time on a battleship and I... More

This is a top attraction when in Honolulu. You see everything - Engine room; Boiler rooms; gun turrets etc. The Heart of the Missouri is advertised as 75min, but it goes for nearly 2 hrs. Takes some time to take shuttle bus from main entrance to the Missouri. I was by myself and highly suggest allowing 4 hours to get... More

Had no idea the ship was so large. It is a good things signs are everywhere to help you find your way. The tour was interesting and informative. Glad we saw this ship and not only the Arizona Memorial.

We bought the tickets for this attraction at the USS Arizona memorial. Reasonable rates. It was a short bus ride from the Arizona site to the Missouri. Amazing to go through the 'Mighty Mo' the ship used to sign the surrender agreement by the Japanese on September 2nd 1945. A massive ship. Walking through the confined sleeping quarters, you can...

Well, you get a ride onto Ford Island, delivered right to the gangway of the mighty warship, then you have your choice of how to experience the ship: self guided tour, you can get the little radio-phone devices that give you info at each stop, OR the 35 minute guided tour. OR, (which I wish we did) take the "Heart... More

I didn't know what to expect when we visited the USS Missouri. The minute we stepped onto this huge battleship I was in awe! I guess I needed to brush up on my American history, because I didn't know this was where the Japanese surrendered to end WWII. When I saw the plaque where they stood and signed the surrender,...
