    There are unique challenges to hosting an event onboard a historic Battleship and being located on an active US Navy base. Our priority is to preserve and protect this incredible piece of American history while ensuring that all clients are serviced with the highest standards. As such we maintain a list of qualified event service providers who are excellent at what they do and know the ins and outs of working onboard. Services include: audio/visual, catering, décor, entertainment, event planning and transportation. Meet our Approved Vendors to see the great people that support events onboard.


    By holding an event on the Battleship Missouri, your guests will know that you are contributing toward the preservation of this legendary vessel.

Every dollar generated from special events goes directly to the operation, maintenance, and preservation of the Battleship Missouri.
