  • If you love history, you will love this floating museum and historic ship. I loved the feeling of being in the same place where so much history took place. It was $37 per person.

  • Take the free 35 minute tour given by a volunteer, then you can tour the rest of the ship on your own. Makes you feel small to be on the ship with all that fire power.

  • Where to start? Firstly the ship is incredible to walk through, it is apart of the pearl Harbor memorial and the history behind this ship is amazing. Get your tickets before hand! Make sure you are 30 minutes early to make sure you are able to go on the bus ride, you don't want to be late, the rangers will not accept a minute of tardiness. Also, for wheel chairs/ people with difficultly going up and down steps, I would not visit as most of the ship requires you to go down steep steps. Get a guided tour for better insight, it really is worth it.
  • What a great spot and location to tour. To be on the actual vessel of the signing of Japan's surrender with the supreme commander Douglas McArthur on board. To be able to walk on the actual deck(s) for when that day took place. It was just and outstanding day. You will see so many things walking around the big decks. The big mighty guns and seeing just how big they are. Looking out over the sides at the ports and to the USS Arizona site. You will enjoy your time and a must see event while visiting. You will not be disappointed. Also, the steep stairs are hard to descend or ascend for those with bad knees or hips. On going to the surrender deck they do have handicap accessibility by means of an elevator for those wanting to go to the deck. I almost forgot, they have (copy of course) the actual signing of Japan's surrender on deck to view. Again, you will enjoy.
  • It's the Mighty Mo, place of the Japanese Surrender in WWII. The ship is incredible. I highly recommend this place. There is a small snack bar beside the ship. You can buy tickets online at recreation.gov or at the Arizona Memorial. You take a bus onto Ford Island from the Memorial because it is an active military base. Don't bring a big purse. You will have to stow it in a locker before you enter the memorial grounds. A man's sized wallet is all you can take with you into any of the grounds. Medical devices can be allowed.
  • What an excellent preserved historical place. My 5 year old and I really enjoyed it. There are quite a bit of stairs. And a fair amount you have to go backward down due to the steepness. Keep that in mind when toting young children. Im not sure if there is an age requirement but if my daughter were any younger I wouldn't have felt comfortable doing this tour.
  • The Mighty MO is a must see. Breath taking ship which offers decades of insight and history of WWII and beyond. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, and the food was pretty good. Only caution is to older or injured folks. The main deck is easily accessible but the upper and lower decks requires a few steep climbs on staircases.
