Weighing over 58,000 tons and measuring just under 900 feet from bow to stern, the USS Missouri is a hulking, awe-inspiring behemoth of a ship. A true force to be reckoned with in her prime, today, the now peaceful giant stands silent guard over Pearl Harbor.

The "Mighty Mo" was the last American battleship ever built and the last to be decommissioned. The surrender of the Japanese on the deck of the Missouri brought the Second World War to an end and remains one of the most impressive highlights in her illustrious, 50-year career, spanning three wars, and three generations of American fighting men and women.

Climb aboard the Missouri and follow in the footsteps of General Douglas MacArthur, Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers. Stride across the deck of the Mighty Mo and get a close-up view of the Missouri's massive, 16-inch, 50-caliber guns. Pop down below for a surprise inspection of the crew's quarters and mess. Finally, take your place on the bridge of the Missouri and check out the view from the Captain's Chair!

Narrated tours are available in multiple languages, including Japanese, Spanish, Chinese and Korean, and for the younger crowd, explore the last, great American battleship with your very own iPod Touch - Greatest Generation meets Texting Generation - preloaded with videos, audio files, and apps.

Of course, in this digital age, nothing beats the "original" FaceTime - good, old fashioned human interaction. Take a guided tour of the ship accompanied by a trained docent for a personalized, one-of-a-kind experience.
