USS Bowfin or Battleship Missouri ??

We will be visiting Pearl Harbor soon and we are wondering which of these 2 to see. We will be checking out USS Arizona but wonder which of these are a must see .

Well certainly the Missouri is of more historical significance.

Why not both? You can probably see the Bowfin while you wait for your Arizona tour and then hop over to the Missouri afterwards. If you've never been on a submarine, you might find it interesting to see how they live when under the water (unless tight spaces are an issue for you).

USS Bowfin takes about 1 hour.

USS Missouri takes about 1 1/2 hours including the shuttle time.

Try to do both.

If not, my choice would be USS Missouri.

You can get a great photo of USS Bowfin from the back lawn of the visitors center.

You can visit the submarine memorial area (for free) outside of the USS Bowfin ticket office.

We visited the USS Missouri while we waited for our time slot to the USS Arizona Memorial. The experience was unforgettable. USS Bowfin on our next visit.
