Board the shuttle to Ford Island, and explore the world’s most famous battleship–the “Mighty Mo.” Walk the deck of this famous battleship and stand beneath the main turrets–huge cannons capable of firing a shell over 20 miles. Then “go below” and explore where crews lived and worked. You’ll marvel at the dent caused by a crashing Kamikaze plane and even see the exact spot where WWII ended, right here in the Pacific. This amazing tour of the USS Missouri includes an expert historical tour guide narration.
