  • Went to have a look at the Missouri, great guide gave a lot of interesting information. Go through the whole ship, you get to look at everywhere. 
  • We had previously visited the Arizona and wanted to return to see the Missouri. While the Arizona is truly one of the most heartbreaking memorials, the Missouri is the place where the war ended. To to...  read more »
  • It was a trip back in time. Amazing to be able to see this amazing ship and hear the stories of the sailors and the ship and the war. Thanks to all the volunteers that make it possible and to the veterans that served.
  • If you like war machines or just want to see one part of history, this is the place you have to go. Ticket price is reasonable ($27 ->) and you will see lot of things with that money even not getting the quided tour. You should reserve lot of time (at least 2-3 hours) to explore a ship. We have seen lot of WW2 things and places all over the world and this is one of the greatest. Maybe because it's so huge and is much easier to imagine with all infos and shows on boat.
  • Almost all access to a very historical ship. Able to go 2 decks below and 5 above this tour offers a look at almost all areas of the ship. Excellent and informative tour, and a very well run exhibit.
  • This ship is a very significant historical artifact. Aboard it, the end of World War II was documented and visitors can stand in front of exactly where that happened. Taking a tour of the ship will definitely help you understand the ship as more than just a huge fancy warship, and instead as an industrial feat of its day. Ask the guides, info desk, or volunteers any questions - they're always eager to answer them and give you more than what you ask.
  • When I was younger I saw one of the photographs showing the representatives of Japan standing aboard USS Missouri to sign the surrender and ending the WW2. So it was a great experience to be standing on the same deck where the historic fact happened. And it is also relevant that you are at Pearl Harbor, where the war started for the United States, and at the same time you are on the vessel where the end of the war was signed. The visit to the Missouri has a guided tour, that is very good and informative. I really recommend.
