COVID-19 UPDATE: Measures We Are Taking

We wanted to take a moment to let you know that the health and well being of our guests, volunteers, and staff continues to be our top priority.

While we are actively monitoring the situation with regards to COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, and are in regular contact with the county health officials, the museum remains open.

We want everyone to feel comfortable while visiting the Midway.  Our staff has taken extra steps to enhance the ship’s cleanliness by significantly increasing the number of hand sanitation stations as well as expanding the cleaning of handrails, audio devices and other accessible spaces on Midway. Again, your health is most important to us and we will continue to focus on keeping our museum environment as clean as possible.

As always, we appreciate your support and patronage of the museum.
