“Welcome Home” to All USS Midway Sailors!  

Experience “Midway Magic” aboard the USS Midway, the Navy’s longest-serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century.

This ship of young heroes successfully led many dramatic humanitarian missions. These sailors established new naval aviation standards. They patrolled uncertain seas to give mutual enemies a moment of pause. They endured and sailed beyond the end of the Cold War. We honor their legacy aboard the USS Midway Museum.
