The battleship USS Missouri, "Mighty Mo", is also now docked on Battleship Row in Pearl Harbor. The Missouri has served her nation proudly in World War II, the Korean Conflict and most recently in the Gulf War.
The Memorial is a not-for-profit venture, which receives no public financing. Despite its location next to the USS Arizona Memorial, Mighty Mo is not part of the U.S. National Park, hence an entry fee is charged to defray operating costs.
There are numerous ticket options available including package tickets which entitle you to visit all three of the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites: the Battleship Missouri Memorial, the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park and the Pacific Aviation Museum. All three are well worth visiting.
Guided tours are available on the Battleship Missouri and I strongly recommend that you take one. They are led by retired military veterans.
How appropriate that these two memorable ships - the one which marked our entry into World War II and the one upon which Japan signed the surrender document - will sit forever together in Pearl Harbor.
