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.

If you are going to see Pearl Harbor, then you should spend some extra time & go over to tour the Mighty Mo. You can walk all over this HUGE ship. Just to see the way everyone has to live while they are out at sea, you will appreciate their dedication a little more... Bless all our Service People....

“Great Followup to our USS Arizona Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

USS Arizona was there at the start of US involvement in WWII, and the Missouri was there at the end. Great way to recall the sacrifices of our soldiers and sailors in the war. The ship was also fun to explore. Kids would love it.

“A piece of WW II history!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

We are a couple in our 60's, we visited the Missouri as part of our package for Pearl Harbor booked through our hotel concierge. I am embarassed to admit that I did not know the history played by the Missouri in World War 2 and I'm glad I visited. Not sure it's very handicapped accessible so if you need such accomodations, please check first. You will board the ship up several steps, and once onboard, there is more climbing steps if you want to wander about the ship. The significance about the ship is that it was chosen as the site for the Japanese to execute the documents of surrender which signaled the end of World War II. General Westmoreland and Admiral Nimitz, Commander of the Pacific Fleet, witnessed the surrender on the deck of the Missouri, and the spot is marked with a brass plaque. Standing there in that place was almost chilling, when you consider the significance of those few moments that ended the war. The desk that was placed there for the signing -- which is considered priceless -- was moved, I think, to Annapolis.
Kids of all ages can admire the huge cannons mounted on the ship which is permanently moored on the site. You can see the command center, the Captain's quarters and dining area, and many of the working areas of that battleship. At the gift shop I purchased a t-shirt of "Big Mo" for my 9-year old grandson. There are restrooms and a "cantine" dining area, but it was closed at the time we were there. I'd suggest a minimum of an hour for the visit.

“Where the Pearl Harbor attack ended; in Japan on the Arizona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

The free access to all areas of he ship at our leisure and seeing static displays and explanations was enjoyable but, the optional guided tour has to be the highlight because of the amazing revelations and historical facts revealed by the guides. The view of Pearl Harbor and the other monuments fro the deck of the Missouri were impressive and again, moving. A very worthwhile visit for the family including two youg granddaughters aged 6 and 8.

“Best one of Pearl Harbor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

You’ll get a little tired after exploring the whole ship, specially if you visit on a hot day. Nevertheless, I highly recommend for the opportunity of experiencing the deck and even the inside cabins of this historic vessel.
If you’re carrying an interchangeable lens camera, I recommend taking a wide angle (or even a fisheye) for this photo op.
