Midway Museum Reopens July 1st

The safety and well-being of guests, members, and the Midway Crew of staff and volunteers has always been the top priority of the USS Midway Museum. We have created this page to share the changes we have made to create a safe and memorable experience onboard while following public health guidelines.

PREPARING FOR YOUR VISIT

Tickets are available for purchase online only at this time. When purchasing tickets you will choose a date and time for your museum visit.

Midway Members should arrive to the museum with their membership card and Photo ID for entry.
