Accessibility to Persons with Disabilities

The Battleship Missouri Memorial welcomes its visitors with disabilities. There is a wheelchair accessible ramp on the aft entry Brow to provide access to the battleship. A tour guide or Battleship Missouri Memorial staff member will be more than happy to assist visitors with accessibility. Handicap restrooms are available at the aft Brow and before the entry gate.

There is an elevator that can take visitors with disabilities up to the Surrender Deck to hear the Surrender story and see artifacts.

Chairs and benches are located around the ship to allow people to sit and rest. Please remember that ladders and stairs are steep, making handholds difficult for visitors.

Service animals are welcome aboard the Missouri although it is unlikely that they can negotiate the steep ladders.

Wheelchair or walker access

The Battleship Missouri Memorial has wheelchairs available for visitors to checkout at the main entrance. Please speak with a tour guide or security guard for assistance.

There is an elevator on the ship, so accessibility beyond the Main Deck and the Surrender Deck is possible for wheelchairs and walkers. Ladders (stairs) are steep and handholds are more difficult.

On the pier, Slider’s Grill and The Battleshop are both accessible to wheelchairs and walkers.

Hearing-impaired visitors

The Missouri ticket office can arrange for a sign language translator through the Hawaii Office of Accessibility and Communication with advanced notice. Please contact us at (808) 455-1600 at least two weeks ahead of your visit. It can take a week to ten days to arrange for a sign language specialist.

Visually-impaired visitors

Visitors that are visually challenged and accompanied by a friend or family member may successfully navigate the ship. Escorts will need to warn the visitor of toe-stubbers, knee-knockers and head bangers found throughout the ship. A little prudence and caution will make for an easy time onboard for everyone.


ATTENTION:

On November 9 through November 28, 2022, we will have asphalt paving at the entrance of the Battleship Missouri Memorial. Please be mindful and use extra caution when passing these areas.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and support as we continue to preserve the ship and her surroundings for future generations.


The Battleship Missouri will be closing at 2:30 pm for private events on December 4 and 10, 2022. Please arrive at the Battleship by 1:00 pm to make the most of your visit.

We ask that all guests remember to stay a safe distance from other visitors while exploring the ship.
