USS Midway Museum


Detailed Information

The USS Midway was the longest-serving aircraft carrier in the 20th century. Named after the climactic Battle of Midway of June 1942, Midway was built in only 17 months, but missed World War II by one week when commissioned on September 10, 1945. Midway was the first in a three-ship class of large carriers that featured an armored flight deck and a powerful air group of 120 planes.


Experience over 60 exhibits throughout the historic aircraft carrier as well as 29 restored aircraft and take part in Family-oriented activities for all ages!


Midway can accommodate evening events after the museum closes for up to 4,000 people. There are no traditional ballrooms or convention center concourses aboard Midway. Rather, it is a unique atmosphere and setting that makes Midway an immensely popular San Diego event location.
