Battleship Missouri Memorial reviews
Took the shuttle from the visitor center to gain access to the island the battleship is located on. Went mid morning and it wasn't too busy. Did the self tour and stopped to listen in to volunteers... more »
If you have the opportunity don't pass up a visit to the Mighty MO. It is docked on Ford Island. Beware if you do not have a military you can only visit it on a tour. more »
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.
