The USS Midway is re-christened, 75 years later!

On Sept. 10, 1945, the USS Midway joined the U.S. Navy fleet as the largest warship ever built. After 75 years of service to the nation and the visiting public, Midway will be re-christened to set its course for another seven and a half decades of providing fun, engaging, and educational experiences that strengthen future generations!

In light of all the challenges we have faced over the last 75 years, and most recently as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to “rechristen” the mighty Midway Magic in a special socially distanced ceremony aboard the USS Midway Museum on Sept. 10, 2020.
