Battleship Missouri Memorial Now Open Five Days A Week

Tuesday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Pearl Harbor, HI – (April 14, 2021) The Battleship Missouri Memorial is excited to announce that it will now be open to guests five days a week from Tuesday through Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Since reopening on December 16, 2020, the Mighty Mo has experienced an increase in daily visitors especially during spring break.

“We are continually reviewing our operations plans as travel to Hawai‘i rebounds, which is why we’ve decided to be open five days a week,” said Mike Carr, President and CEO of the Battleship Missouri Memorial. “While we are working toward our original operations schedule prior to the pandemic, we still want to stress that the health and wellbeing of our guests are of the utmost importance. We have static tours to safely engage with guests about the history, firepower and legacy of the Mighty Mo. Guests are also welcomed to independently explore the USS Missouri.”

From the moment you step onto the shuttle bus at the Pearl Harbor Visitors Center, we are committed to regular sanitization of highly touched areas, commonly used spaces, and other surfaces throughout the site. Additional sanitizing stations are also available around the ship for guests to use. Food options at the Battleship Missouri are limited during this time.

About the Battleship Missouri Memorial
Since opening in January 1999, the Battleship Missouri Memorial has attracted more than 9-million visitors from around the world with a fascinating tour experience showcasing the USS Missouri’s unique place in history. Located a mere ship’s length from the USS Arizona Memorial, the Mighty Mo completes a historical visitor experience that begins with the “day of infamy” and sinking of the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and ends with Japan’s formal surrender aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945.

The USS Missouri had an astounding career over five decades and three wars – World War II, the Korean War, and Desert Storm – after which it was decommissioned and donated to the USS Missouri Memorial Association, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Association operates the Battleship Missouri Memorial as a historic attraction and oversees her care and preservation with the support of visitors, memberships, grants, and donations.

Safety is our top priority. The Battleship Missouri Memorial is taking additional steps to assure guests will have a safe and healthy experience touring the Mighty Mo. We respectfully ask all visitors to abide by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) safety guidelines while on site.

The Battleship Missouri Memorial is open Tuesday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. General admission is $29.99 per adult and $13.99 per child (4-12). Military, kama‘āina (local resident) and school group pricing is available. For information or reservations, call (808) 455-1600 or visit
