Take a special tour of the Battleship Missouri, the last battleship ever built and recently refurbished! This is the site upon which Japan officially surrendered to the United States, marking the end of World War II. But with service spanning three wars, this ship has a much broader story to tell. Stand on the Surrender Deck, the official site of the end of World War II, and see the fatal spot where a Japanese kamikaze pilot flew into the hull of the ship. Mighty Mo proudly served in World War II, the Korean War, and the Gulf War. Step back in time aboard an American icon and hero, the Battleship Missouri. Your tour of the Battleship Missouri includes the Surrender Deck, as well as look at where a Japanese kamikaze pilot flew his plane into Missouri's hull. Her bow faces the USS Arizona Memorial and watches over the remains of those servicemen who lost their lives during the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Commissioned in 1944, the Battleship Missouri marked the surrender of the Japanese Empire and the end of World War II. The Missouri continued to see combat action during the Korean War and Gulf War before she was decommissioned in 1992 and docked at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Washington State. She was towed to Honolulu and opened as a floating museum in 1999. The Battleship Missouri underwent an $18 million renovation at the beginning of 2010. Even if you aren’t a history buff or part of a military family, the Battleship Missouri Memorial is a fascinating vessel and is consistently rated among the most-visited sites in Hawaii!
