At a Glance

Walk the decks of the USS Missouri and recall its storied history as the site of Japanese surrender in World War II, a veteran of four wars and the last battleship to be active in any navy in the world. At one time, hundreds of sailors kept this powerful dreadnought fit and ready for duty. Now you will become a part of the “Mighty Mo’s” history.
