Journey with the Stars

The Journey with the Stars program at the Battleship Missouri Memorial is an interactive learning experience for fourth grade students and teachers.

The Journey with the Stars program includes pre-visit and post-visit materials and lesson plans for classroom teachers to use to help enrich the museum experience. Participation in this astronomy and history based program includes an engaging and interactive museum visit with a planetarium experience, hands-on practice with current GPS technology, observation and application of traditional celestial navigation tools, and an overview of the discovery and settlement of Polynesia and the Polynesian Islands.

Participation in this program provides students with a greater understanding of Hawaiian history, celestial navigation and stellar astronomy, and the use of current technology for aquatic navigation. Throughout the lesson, students demonstrate critical thinking skills in math, science, language arts, history, and public speaking.

Preserving our History-Superstructure Preservation Project

Currently, final work is being done to our superstructure and is expected to be completed by the end of February 2018. For safety reasons, our flying and navigation bridges will be closed during restoration. We appreciate your patience and understanding and your part in helping to preserve America’s last Battleship.

Currently, we don't have ADA access to the Surrender Deck. Our lift from the main deck to the Surrender Deck is temporarily out of order. We hope to have this fixed as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
