Next week, the Mighty Mo is going into drydock to be refurbished with $18 million in repairs and upgrades. When it opens back up again at the end of January, the $20 admission price will cover a guided tour.
Currently, you can purchase an unguided tour for $16 and a guided tour for $23. Michael A. Carr, president and chief operating officer of the USS Missouri Memorial Association was quoted in the Honolulu Advertiser saying “There are just so many stories and anecdotes. If you don’t hear them, you’re missing out on so much.”
Tourists in Hawaii will no doubt be disappointed in the coming months when the Mighty Mo is off in drydock. For more information about visting the Battleship Missouri, read my blog post “Climb aboard the Mighty Mo“.
