Battleship Missouri Memorial and Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum Temporarily Modify Operation Schedules

Pearl Harbor, Hawaii (July 22, 2020) – The Battleship Missouri Memorial and Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum announce temporary modifications to their operation schedules. Beginning Monday, July 27, both Pearl Harbor Historic Sites (PHHS) attractions will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. The two museums will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for the Battleship Missouri Memorial and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum.

“With the very slow return of our business, these changes needed to be addressed,” said Mike Carr, President and CEO of the Battleship Missouri Memorial. “This is just a temporary solution to the current situation we are all facing. When we begin to reverse these decisions, we will come back stronger than before.”

Visitors are still able to utilize the Pearl Harbor Kama‘āina Family Pass for unlimited access to all Pearl Harbor Historic Sites through Labor Day, September 7, 2020. The pass is valid for two adults and up to four children under the age of 18. This offer is available for purchase online or at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.

Battleship Missouri Memorial

Since opening in January 1999, the Battleship Missouri Memorial has attracted more than 9-million visitors from around the world with a fascinating tour experience showcasing the USS Missouri’s unique place in history. Located a mere ship’s length from the USS Arizona Memorial, the Mighty Mo completes a historical visitor experience that begins with the “day of infamy” and sinking of the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and ends with Japan’s formal surrender aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945.

The USS Missouri had an astounding career over five decades and three wars – World War II, the Korean War, and Desert Storm – after which it was decommissioned and donated to the USS Missouri Memorial Association, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Association operates the Battleship Missouri Memorial as a historic attraction and oversees her care and preservation with the support of visitors, memberships, grants, and donations.

Safety is our top priority. The Battleship Missouri Memorial is taking additional steps to assure guests will have a safe and healthy experience touring the Mighty Mo. We respectfully ask all visitors to abide by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) safety guidelines while on site. 

The Battleship Missouri Memorial has modified its hours of operation, Wednesday through Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. General admission, which includes choice of an optional tour, is $29.99 per adult and $13.99 per child (4-12). Military, kama‘āina (local resident) and school group pricing is $23.99 per adult and $11.99 per child (4-12). For information or reservations, call (808) 455-1600 or visit
