Fodor's Review

Together with the Arizona Memorial, the Battleship Missouri's presence in Pearl Harbor perfectly bookends America's World War II experience, which began December 7, 1941, and ended on the "Mighty Mo's" starboard deck with the signing of the Terms of Surrender. To begin your visit, pick up tickets online or at the Pear Harbor Visitors' Center. Then board a shuttle bus for the eight-minute ride to Ford Island and the teak decks and towering superstructure of the last battleship ever built. Join a free guided tour to learn more about the Battleship Missouri's long and dramatic history. A $10 tour of her lower decks is available for history buffs.

The Missouri is 887 feet long, 209 feet tall, with nine 116 ton guns, capable of firing up to 23 miles. Absorb these numbers during the tour, then stop to take advantage of the view from the decks. Near the entrance there is a gift shop and a lunch wagon serving hamburgers and hot dogs.
