Celebrate Our Birthday
January 29 is a day to celebrate at the Battleship Missouri! This day commemorates both the anniversary of the Missouri's launching from New York Navy Yard in 1944 and our anniversary of the battleship's opening as a memorial in Pearl Harbor.
To celebrate this year, Living History Day will be held on Saturday, February 1 from 8am until 4pm and is especially noteworthy, as it will celebrate the 70th anniversary of America's last and most famous battleship, the USS Missouri.
Guests to the Battleship Missouri Memorial on Living History Day will enjoy a variety of historical exhibits that will be as fun and entertaining, as they are educational. Among the activities will be displays of military vehicles, memorabilia and weaponry; bands playing patriotic music; oral history presentations; people in period dress from the World War II era; and actors portraying notable wartime figures, such as General Douglas MacArthur and Admiral Chester Nimitz. Admission will be free to Hawaii residents, Military and members of the Battleship Missouri Memorial.
