The Battleship Missouri Memorial, located a mere ship’s length from the USS Arizona Memorial, completes a historical visitor experience that begins with the “day of infamy” that saw the sinking of USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor and ends with Imperial Japan’s formal surrender aboard USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. Following an astounding career that spans five decades and three wars, from World War II to the Korean War to the Operation Desert Storm, the “Mighty Mo” was decommissioned and donated to the USS Missouri Memorial Association, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which operates the battleship as a historic attraction and memorial. The Association oversees her care and preservation with the support of visitors, memberships, grants and the generosity of donors.

We invite you to explore our Press Room for the most recent media coverage, press releases, events and more. Thank you for joining us in our mission to preserve the Battleship Missouri and share her story and place in history.

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.
