Volunteers Welcome at the Battleship Missouri Memorial

When the Battleship Missouri was in commission, there were 2,500 Sailors maintaining the ship. Today, the Battleship Missouri Memorial has less than 25 ship maintenance staff working on the ship, so volunteers are needed to restore and preserve teak decks, metal decks, bulkheads, displays and equipment.

Volunteer openings are available in these areas as needed:

    Assisting in take up of old teak deck
