Battle of Midway 75th Anniversary

How the USS Midway got her name...

The Battle of Midway was far more than an epic WWII clash somewhere far away at sea. It was an American victory that forever changed the course of world history. This is the battle that turned the tide of the war, that shifted the balance of naval superiority, and that demonstrated the potential power and extraordinary capabilities of our Navy and its Sailors.

Join us on the flight deck for a free ceremony held by the U.S. Navy and the USS Midway Museum to commemorate this historic event.

The event will be held on the flight deck and will include:

  • A special flyover of 2 F/A-18 Hornets
  • Guest Speakers
  • Battle of Midway Veterans in attendance
  • Color Guard 
  • A live broadcast from Midway Atoll

and more!

Visitor Advisory

  • Parking will be very limited on Navy Pier.  Anticipate nearby traffic congestion.
  • Tours of the island (flight deck superstructure) will not begin until approximately 12:30 p.m.
  • Navy security will include screening all museum and event guests with standard metal detectors.
  • Those attending the free public event will board Midway across the brow closest to shore.
