USS Missouri Memorial
Vacation Travel Guide

USS Missouri Memorial featuring a monument and military items

Explore this huge vessel and learn about the Battle of Pearl Harbor on the spot where World War II ended.

The USS Missouri Memorial is an enormous ship that commemorates the final moments of World War II. The Japanese surrendered on board this boat, helping to bring about an end to the war. Follow in the footsteps of American military heroes and inspect the many features of this grand vessel.

Embark on one of the two daily tours for a comprehensive understanding of the ship and its history. The main tour offers an insightful overview, whereas the Heart of the Missouri tour takes you into the engine rooms and gun turrets. The latter is not available to children under 10. Pick up an audio phone for the Acoustiguide Audio Tour that covers more than 100 stops on the ship.

Take the safety briefing to ensure you don’t hit your head on low ceilings or stumble over features on the floor. Speak with members of staff to hear intriguing stories. See the large 50-caliber guns boasted by the USS Missouri. Descend below the deck to walk around the crew’s quarters and mess. Stroll along the ship’s bridge and enjoy the excellent view of the harbor from the Captain’s Chair.

Explore the larger Pearl Harbor area to learn about this tragic and brutal battle in World War II. Memorials and museums, many of which are free to enter, chronicle the various individual and communal stories. Visit the gift shop to purchase souvenirs and other fascinating artifacts with a Pearl Harbor theme.

The memorial opens daily from morning until late afternoon. The fee for admission to the memorial includes the tour. Kids get half-price discounts.

The USS Missouri Memorial is in the southern part of the island of Honolulu. Take a shuttle bus to the heart of Ford Island in the Middle Loch to reach the memorial. Visit the nearby attractions, including the USS Oklahoma Memorial and the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor.
