    Visited the Missouri in September with my husband and daughter. We all loved it! The Heart of the Missouri tour we booked separately was what made the experience amazing. Our former navy guide took us...  more »

    If you're going to be visiting the USS Arizona Memorial then take the time to visit the Missouri. The displays are well thought out and very educational. Definitely worth the time.  more »

    To walk the decks of this magnificent battleship is to walk into history. At the site on the deck where Japan signed the surrender, there are photos of all of the dignitaries that attended that event and they are identified quite clearly. One is able to tour by oneself everything on the deck and above. That means one can enter various different cabins and see for themselves exactly what it was like to live in the cabin as the commanding officer, or the chief medical officer, or even the radar crew. It is a tour that every American should take when presented the opportunity. You will not regret it.

    Very nice battleship to visit. Possibly haunted, but hey it's a battleship it's kinda a given. Right now the super-structre on the ship is undergoing restorations, so it's completely covered in white tarp and blocked off. The surrender deck and the interior of the ship are still open of course. There is air conditioning inside the ship. To access the memorial you have to take a shuttle bus from the Pearl Harbor memorial, as Ford island is an active military base.

    The Missouri was so much more than I had expected. We almost passed because it was at the end of a tiring day, we were hot, our feet and bodies were exhausyed after 7 days of intense island activities, myself and my10 year old grand nephew were so glad we didn't. Its a grand ship and she has an amazing history I wasn't aware of. I highly recommend taking the free 35 minute tour, the volunteers are a wealth of knowledge

    An experience to have for yourself. I took pictures other parts of the ship. If you are curious about it, go visit it yourself. Picture do not do justice, only conserve memories. This ship is massive in scale compared to you, standing on the deck, let alone looking at it off the pier. Must see, preserved era in history floating on a ship. Awesome!

    This tour was awesome the guide very informative. He told us so much and made what he said come to life. You get to look the whole ship over and they have awesome photos taken of you. Resonance price since the money helps maintain the ship. Snack bar there too.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
