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.

“Great Visit, But Careful Where You Step!”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

The Mighty Mo is a gorgeous battleship - the site of the Japanese Surrender that ended WWII. There are guided and self-guided tours available, but be careful! There is a lot of climbing over door entries and stepping down into the rooms themselves, as well as climbing up and down ladders with small steps. Though it does have some handicap accessibility, not all of it is. A great way to end your visit to the USS Arizona.

Well worth the visit but don't bother with the audio machine with this one. It's a massive and heavy unit whereas the other places are smaller and easier to use.

“Make sure you allow enough time.”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

This is well worth the visit. My only regret is that we didn't have enough time after our guided tour. This is a big ship and to be able to observe all the photos etc and fully appreciate the ship allow a few hours.

“Stand at the place where the war ended and view where it started.”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Visiting the USS Missouri has been something I've wanted to do for a long time and am so glad I finally made it. They have done a very nice job of making the ship accessible to the public. We took the brief tour of the weather decks and came back the second day to view the second deck.
You can stand at the place where the Japanese surrendered and view the Arizona Memorial, symbolizing where our involvement in the Second World War began.
This is a beautiful ship. A type never to be seen again. It is worth the time to visit.

“The Mighty Mo is a great tour: educational, humbling and so worth the time!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

The history you get on the bus out to the USS Missouri sets the mood for your tour as it describes the USS Missouri as the guardian, the protector of the fallen USS Arizona and its men. That thought stayed with us throughout our time on the USS Missouri.

We learned the USS Missouri is a city all its own. From her massive guns on her bow and stern, down to the cafeteria and quarters in her belly, she is nothing but impressive and a bit overwhelming when you think of all that lived and occurred on her. She has a cafeteria, entertainment rooms, dentist and doctor offices, classrooms, a postal office, etc. Under her bow, she has a mini-museum that contains a replica of the Armistice that ended the war and it is very powerful to think what the men on her must've been feeling as she sailed to Japan's port where it would be signed. There are also statistics on the war which are horrific. They list the casualties for each country in the war, the percentage of pre-war population lost (Poland's was 50% I believe) ... staggering. Hard to believe the numbers are accurate.

Don't do Pearl Harbor and not do the USS Missouri audio tour. You'd be missing so much.
