  • This was an awesome tour!! Even with the construction going on, we had a great time, touring it on our own. They also have guides tours, but we prefer doing it on our own and being able to go at our own pace. There are plaques and markers along the way so we were able to read about each area. I suggest taking a bottle of water as they have water stations on board. They have drinks for sale but $5.50 for a Monster is outrageous in my opinion.
  • Love it! It's just such an honor to be able to walk the decks of the Missouri and learn the history. I will do it again if I ever get the chance just to support the preservation of this unique piece of history. Come here if you ever get the chance and learn about those who gave their lives. Honor their memory.
  • See where WW2 ended. A very informative (but short) guided tour of the top deck helps show a few key places. However, it is the lower decks which are full of very interesting information. And the lower decks have air conditioning! As always with these places, you get out more if you spend some time reading the displays, looking at the exhibits, etc. But invest a little and you will gain a lot.
  • My Boy Scout Troop did the encampment overnight stay on Mighty Mo and they take great care of you. Sleep on actual crew bunks, take afternoon and night tours, and eat in the crew galley. Great program and they have tours that are interesting for all age groups. They even let us retrieve the colors off the fantail of the ship, and raise them the next morning. I encourage all scouts to apply for this opportunity. The staff were extremely knowledgeable of all things Battleship Missouri.
  • Do not miss this tour! Take the guided tour on the upper deck, they are so knowledgeable and you’ll learn so much! Tour the decks below which are surprisingly roomy and rich with history. The atmosphere just outside is nostalgic with signage and seating. There’s also a food truck!
