Since opening in January 1999, the Battleship Missouri Memorial has attracted 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.

Today, the “Mighty Mo” is open for visitors in Pearl Harbor as the Battleship Missouri Memorial, under the care of the USS Missouri Memorial Association, Inc. Not supported with government funding, the Association is a Hawaii-based 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating and maintaining a fitting memorial to the people and historic events reflecting our nation’s legacy of duty, honor, strength, resolve, and sacrifice.
