We also bought tickets for admission to the USS Missouri Memorial at the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park. So, after visiting the USS Bowfin, we got on a shuttle that takes you to Ford Island (a Navy Base - no pictures are allowed to be taken from the shuttle while on the base), which is where the Missouri is docked. Ford Island is also where a lot of scenes from the recent Pearl Harbor movie were filmed. We took the Chief's Tour, and it was well worth the additional charge.
