“WWII history comes alive”

The Battleship Missouri Memorial offers two daily tours with much more to explore on your own. The main tour is included in your General Admission ticket and takes you to the exact spot where WWII ended and is fully ADA accessible. The second is called "The Heart of the Missouri" tour and takes you deep inside the inner workings of the ship including the engine rooms and gun turrets.  This tour is not ADA accessible and is not open to children under 10. For all our guests we recommend that you purchase bottled beverages to keep you hydrated during your visit. In addition we suggest wearing closed toed shoes and take care when moving through doorways and passageways with low ceilings. Safety briefings will be part of every visitors experience, thank you for your participation. Born in the midst of World War II, the shipyard workers at Brooklyn’s New York Navy Yard constructed the battleship in time for her launch on January 29, 1944 and commissioning as the USS Missouri on June 11, 1944 with Capt. William M. Callaghan in command. The USS Missouri was the third U.S. Navy ship to be named after the Show Me state and the fourth American warship* to bear the name - there was a Confederate Missouri that was captured by Union forces during the Civil War but never commissioned as a United States Ship (USS). Today, a Virginia - class submarine, USSMissouri (SSN-780) has the honor of being the fourth USS Missouri and carrying the Missouri legacy into the future. USS Missouri’s as-built design characteristics include: displacement 45,000; length 887'3"; beam 108'2"; draft 28'11"; speed 33 knots; complement 1,921; armament nine 16-inch, twenty 5-inch, eighty 40 millimeter, forty-nine 20 millimeter; class Iowa.

Explore inside the USS Missouri (Mighty Mo) on a visit to Pearl Harbour when you visit Oahu, Hawaii. Mighty is a worthy term for a ship that's the length of 3 football fields and home to 2700 sailors during WWII. It's a fascinating look at battleship technology in the early 1940's.
