Battleship Missouri Memorial Returns to Full Operations Schedule Beginning Memorial Day Weekend

Monday through Sunday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Pearl Harbor, Hawaii (May 20, 2021) – The Battleship Missouri Memorial announces that it will be restoring its full operations schedule beginning Memorial Day weekend. The Mighty Mo will be open to visitors daily, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with the continuation of static tours as a way to safely engage about the history, firepower and legacy of the Mighty Mo. Independent exploring of the USS Missouri is also highly encouraged.

“We understand travel to Hawai‘i is still recovering, but we are excited to finally be back open to our normal operational days and hours prior to the pandemic,” said Mike Carr, President and CEO of the Battleship Missouri Memorial. “We really want to stress that the health and wellbeing of our guests continue to be a top priority, and while the CDC guidelines are evolving and changing as the vaccine rollout continues, we are still following the regulations and mandates set forth by the State of Hawai‘i, including mask wearing during your visit to the Mighty Mo.”

While on board, check out “Missouri in the Movies” exhibit showcasing artifacts from a number of films that the USS Missouri was featured in. This new exhibit will be available now through August 31.

We are committed to regular sanitization of highly touched areas, commonly used spaces, and other surfaces from the moment you step onto the shuttle bus at the Pearl Harbor Visitors Center and at the Battleship Missouri Memorial. Additional sanitizing stations are also made available throughout the ship for guests to use. Food options are still 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 state of Hawaii safety guidelines while on site.

The Battleship Missouri Memorial is open daily 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
