SEASON OF THANKS
The USS Midway Museum is proud to present a Season of Thanks, a lineup of events and occasions between September – December, that honor and thank our service men and women in uniform who serve our community in the name of freedom.
Join us onboard to remember our 9/11 heroes, honor our Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action, recognize our Veterans and give back to those in need. Let’s show our gratitude!
SEASON OF THANKS CALENDAR
On the seventeenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we will keep our promise to “Never Forget”.
The ceremony will include commemorative activities to pay tribute to the service, courage, and sacrifice of those we lost.
In honor of those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are still missing in action (MIA), the USS Midway Museum will observe this day of recognition.
Join us as we welcome former POWs aboard. They will bring displays and memorabilia to share their stories and experiences with guests. Come shake the hands of true heroes.
Back by VERY popular demand, we are happy to announce #TopGunOnMidway with back-to-back Top Gun Party & Movie Nights!
Join us on Friday, October 19 or Saturday, October 20, as we turn the flight deck into a target rich environment!
The USS Midway Museum is proud to participate in Kids Free in October!
This program, facilitated by the San Diego Museum Council, provides San Diegans and tourists alike the opportunity to visit more museum destinations than ever before and save some money with a special coupon.
Join us for a fun-filled day celebrating our service men and women on Veterans Day weekend! Festivities kick off with a Veterans Parade along Harbor Drive featuring live music, community groups, schools, and patriotic groups.
After, the fun continues onboard with the NBC7 & Telemundo 20 Salute to Service Festival on Flight Deck! Stick around the Flight Deck for live entertainment, KidZone, and more family fun!

On Saturday, September 15, 2018 over 1 thousand San Diegans came together on the flight deck to form the shape of a heart by standing side-by-side. This unifying act was a special message of THANKS to those who protect our freedoms at home and abroad. Thank you to the thousands of service men and women who keep our communities and our nation safe, and thank you to all of YOU who joined us!
