Follow the USS Missouri from her first launch in 1944 until today.

USS Missouri is the site where World War II formally ended; it is our primary artifact; it is the place we work and explore, it is an obligation to future generations, it is an inspiration to millions of visitors; it is quite simply America’s Battleship Missouri.

We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2019. We will reopen at 8:00 am on November 29, 2019.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Battleship Missouri Memorial.
