TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF USS MIDWAY MUSEUM COVID-19 UPDATE:
The health and safety of the USS Midway Museum guests, members, staff and volunteers remains our top priority. Due to the recent issuance of the Regional Stay-At-Home order for the Southern California region by state health officials, the museum is temporarily closed to the public.
We will continue to actively monitor the situation and follow the guidance of state and county health officials, and hope to reopen as soon as possible. Please visit the USS Midway Museum website – www.midway.org – and follow us on social media for updated information.
While the museum is closed, the Midway can still be experienced by visiting our website for virtual tours of the ship, children’s activities, ship stories and blogs, a photo gallery of our military aircraft, and much more.
We appreciate everyone’s understanding as we together move through these challenging times and look forward to once again providing the Midway Magic experience to our guests in the near future.

Suggested Attire: The USS Midway Museum is an authentic U.S. naval aircraft carrier built of steel with narrow passageways, heavy doors, low ceilings, elevated bases, steep stairways and uneven surfaces. Exploring Midway involves walking through such areas. For your safety, we recommend watching your step and wearing comfortable, closed-toes shoes. We also suggest wearing layered clothing as temperatures vary around the ship. Planning to take the audio tour? It is recommended to bring your own headphones!
Family Activities: Our young guests are able to enjoy our Junior Pilot Program, an activity allowing them to earn their own pilot wings. Simply stop by the Information Booth once you come onboard to get started!
