Live it & Learn It

Spend the night onboard the legendary USS Midway! Embark on an Overnight Adventure and walk in the footsteps of sailors who served aboard the longest serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century. Your group arrives at 4:30 PM for check-in and embarks on your adventure at 5 PM as the Museum closes.

This program is intended for participants ages 8-18. 

The Live It & Learn It Overnight Adventure includes:

  • Explore the flight deck under the stars.
  • Sleep in authentic Enlisted Berthing spaces used by Midway Sailors.
  • Eat dinner and breakfast in the original ship’s Galley.
  • Embark on special behind-the-scenes tours of the ship.

Ages 8 – 10 must have individual chaperones, and for ages 10+ there must be one chaperone for every 5 youth. Wheelchairs and limited mobility cannot be accommodated for this program due to the structure of the ship.
