Owner description: Preserving our History-Superstructure Preservation Project Currently, work is being done to our superstructure and is expected to be completed by September 2017. For safety reasons, our flying and navigation bridges will be closed during restoration. We appreciate your patience and understanding and your part in helping to preserve America’s last Battleship. 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.

It was very nice to see the Missouri, and we enjoyed the Docent's tour immensely. He made good points and made sure we saw the highlights of the vessel. Being an older Battle wagon built in the style of the Old Battleships, and adapted many times as needs changed. I found the displays well aid out and, seeing the documents that ended WWII was a treat. Sadly amusing to see that even on this important document One of the delegates signed in the wrong place.... (Ok it was the Canadian)
I'm not sure why you have to drive all around the harbor, as it is only a few feet from the Arizona it would make sense to be able to walk over from there.

But I would list it among my Must sees in Oahu.

This battleship was lunched after the Pearl Harbour attacks but is still worth a visit. It gives you a great history of he USA involvement in several conflicts since the second world war. The ship is massive and you are able to explore much of it to learn what life may have been like for a sailor. Very interesting memorial indeed. You may also visit the Memorial fr the Oklahoma which is nearby.

My wife and I traveled to Pearl Harbor to see the USS Missouri. The last time we had seen her, she was "in moth balls" in Bremerton, WA harbor. Both of us very much enjoyed touring the ship, especially knowing its historic contributions at the end of WWII.

Extensive areas of the ship are available for touring, and the tour guides were very knowledgeable. It was particularly interesting to see how the enlisted men lived and the details of the WWII surrender ceremony that took place on her deck - it was great to stand at the very spot where the surrender table was located and see copies of the surrender documents on display.

The views from the ship of Pearl Harbor, battleship row, and the Arizona Memorial were fantastic. My wife is emphatically not a WWII buff or military museum fan, and she also had a good time.

Be advised that there is some climbing up and down steep ship's stair cases - so those with mobility issues might have some difficulty seeing everything. I would also alot at least 90 minutes to two hours for the experience.

This does not have to be a priority visit if you are pressed for time. My husband is an historian and insisted on seeing where the Japanese actually signed the surrender documents.
When you get there, they insist on taking your picture and then selling it to the tune of $35. They take you to the deck where the signing and ritual occured and give some history and then you can tour the ship. I should never have gone downstairs and was not warned that it was full of mold and dust. I couldn't breathe and my nostrils were swelling up and we had to go some time before we could find the exit.

Advice: at the Pearl Harbor Memorial, you can see the USS Missouri, get the history and avoid the whole experience of getting on the ship.
