  • A very awesome tour of a wonderfully kept WWII era battleship. It is moored in Pearl Harbor, but it was not there during the December 7, 1941 attack. However, this historic battleship is where the Japanese Instrument of Surrender was signed in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945. The ship is actually located on the base, so if you have military ID, you can drive to it. Otherwise, you can take a shuttle from the “World War II Valor In The Pacific National Monument” (AKA Pearl Harbor Visitor Center AKA USS Arizona Memorial). Cost to tour the battleship is $5 which includes an informative guided tour around the deck. You get to see and stand at the exact spot where General MacArthur and other officials signed the Japanese Instrument of Surrender. Very historical spot. After the tour of the deck you are free to venture below deck by yourself and see the mess halls, the sleeping quarters, officer’s areas, and more. The ship is in really great shape and is well worth the $5 to check it out.
  • Such a wonderful and moving experience! I chose to go all out and see all that I could with the passport package. I loved every moment! Passport Package: $72 (as of 01/11/18), includes USS AZ, USS MO, USS Bowfin, Aviation Museum, guided audio tours throughout the exhibits, and the NEW virtual reality tour. Tip: If you return with Passport Ticket with in 7 days you can have another day for $10! I personally wish I had another day to spend there!
  • Amazing spot to soak up some very relevant history. The Missouri allows you to walk through a battleship, appreciate some of the stories. We took a guided tour (free) and was well worth it. The extra detail you receive from the guides is excellent.
  • This was a great trip! Cost a bit upfront, but you can go anytime. Do the quick tour with the guide up front, and then they let you roam the ship at your leisure. There's plenty to see and lots of guides around to answer questions. It's worth the time and money. Do this right after you see the Arizona memorial.
  • My best and most memorable activity of Hawaii. If you love history and sites, please do what I didn't and dedicate a whole day to the entire pearl harbor memorial. There are so many things to read and see, a couple hours is not long enough!!!
