Overnight Encampment

Just like real Sailors, youth groups can sample "life at sea" with an overnight encampment experience aboard the Battleship Missouri Memorial. Campers sleep in the crew berthing areas, store their gear in the lockers, and eat Navy-style meals on the ship’s mess deck. In addition, students participate in onboard activities that require communication and teamwork in a historical, hands-on environment.

Membership Encampment - Friends of the Mighty Mo
Saturday, November 18, 2017

Experience life on a battleship as you go on a behind the scenes tour of the ship, eat on the ship's mess deck, and sleep in the crew's berthing area...

That's right, we are offering members the opportunity to stay overnight on the last active service battleship in the world! You don't want to miss this unique and exciting experience.

The Overnight Encampment experience is being offered to Friends of the Mighty Mo (Battleship Missouri Members) and their families at a reduced rate.

Guests will choose to begin their overnight adventure with one of two special access tours: "Big Guns" or "Engine Room Snipes." Following an evening colors ceremony, dinner will be served on the mess deck.

Afterwards, guests will embark on a special access tour. The evening will culminate with a night-time presentation of the WWII surrender story on the historic "Surrender Deck."

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.
