History is Made
In June of 1942, the Battle of Midway took place inspiring a nation, creating a legend, and naming an iconic ship.
Today, the USS Midway Museum in San Diego, CA, is home to the defining exhibit of the Battle of Midway in America. Our Battle of Midway Theater & Experience includes a 90-seat theater featuring a riveting multimedia movie entitled “Voices of Midway” as well as iconic WWII-era aircraft; the SBD Dauntless, F4F Wildcat, and our newest addition, the TBD Devastator (as seen in the movie, Midway.)
There are no other Devastator representations anywhere else in the world.

WELCOMING THE TBD DEVASTATOR
Today, I am excited to discuss Midway’s newest exhibit a very special replica unlike any other in the world…
This September, after months of restoration, the USS Midway Museum welcomed aboard a special replica torpedo aircraft, the TBD Devastator. This near full-sized TBD Devastator replica was originally built for the upcoming motion picture, Midway and will soon be incorporated into the overall presentation of our current Battle of Midway Theater complex which already contains dynamic displays of the F4F Wildcat fighter and SBD Dauntless dive bomber.
