Mission Statement

Preserve the historic USS Midway and the legacy of those who serve, inspire and educate future generations, and entertain our museum guests.


The USS Midway Museum is an adventure for the entire family! Explore over 60 exhibits & 27 restored aircraft aboard an authentic US Navy Aircraft Carrier. Located in downtown San Diego.

The USS Midway Museum started in 1992 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit business, and opened as a museum in 2004. Since then, the Midway has become one of the top tourist destinations in Southern California, and the most visited ship museum in the United States.
The USS Midway served in the US Navy from 1945-1992, making it the longest serving aircraft carrier in naval history. The museum employs dioramas, audio/visual technology, and volunteer docents, many of which served on the Midway, to help guests better understand what life was like for those who served on board.
The museum also has full-motion flight simulators, a cafe and gift shop, and is conveniently located in one of the most beautiful spots in San Diego.
The Midway also has a top-notch education program and is heavily involved in the community and in programs that support our men and women in uniform. In her short time in operation, the USS Midway Museum aims to become recognized as America's Living Symbol of Freedom.

I have been a volunteer for 10 years. It's been a wonderful experience. The people I volunteer with are first rate and are there to provide a fun, authentic, and unforgettable guest experience. Meeting guests from all over the U.S. and the world and getting to talk about the Midway is another plus for joining the volunteer corps at the U.S.S.Midway
