Virtual Classroom - COVID19

Take a Virtual Field Trip to the Battleship Missouri! 

The Battleship Missouri Memorial is encouraging students to continue engaging, learning and exploring from home during this unprecedented time.

Students are invited to take a virtual field trip to the Mighty Mo and experience America’s last battleship. This year marks a significant opportunity to get a glimpse of the USS Missouri’s place in history as the Battleship Missouri Memorial commemorates the 75th anniversary of the End of WWII on September 2, 2020.

The one-hour virtual field trip takes students on a tour back in time, explaining the ship’s place in history, length of service, and explains the impressive magnitude of her size and power of her guns. For students grades seven through twelfth, the discussion also includes a more in-depth conversation about World War II and the Missouri’s famous role in that war. Each field trip concludes with a student-based question and answer session.

Classes are available from 7 a.m. through 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, Hawaii Standard Time (HST).

In order to take part in the Battleship Missouri Memorial’s virtual field trip, schools will need a Skype account or Zoom account, which can be created for free at or , a web-enabled camera, speakers, and computer with reliable internet and YouTube access.
