Battleship Missouri Memorial
Built during World War II, the Battleship Missouri finished production in time to serve at the battles of Okinawa and Iwo Jima. Designed to be a fast battleship, just like her Iowa-class sisters – USS Iowa (BB 61), USS New Jersey (BB 62), and USS Wisconsin (BB 64) – the Missouri was the youngest of the fleet.
Measuring 887'3" (270.4m) in length, the ship could travel faster than 33 knots, a notable difference from her Japanese contemporaries and their 26-knot capacity. During a tour of the ship, you'll have the chance to explore the decks and learn fascinating facts about the Missouri's past.
