Below Deck Exhibits Highlights
Descend into the immersive world of a sea-roving community of thousands. Climb into the narrow bunks young sailors called their own, see what it takes to prepare more than 14,000 meals a day, visit a floating hospital ward, and descend below the waterline into a massive engine room and the facilities that kept it running.
Chow Line / Galley
Explore what it takes to feed a small city at sea every day in with our Chow Line and Galley displays below decks.
Learn about how the spiritual needs from the many faiths represented by the Midway’s crew were addressed by visiting the Midway’s Chapel.
Examine how the Midway’s officers dined and socialized in our Wardroom exhibit, including a special silver service set display, and the informal “Dirty Shirt” Wardroom frequented by the pilots.
Sick Bay / Dental
See how the health needs of the Midway’s crew were met, from surgery to routine dental checkups in our Sick Bay and Dental exhibits.
