Thank you for helping us 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 was commissioned as the largest warship in the world in 1945. Following, Midway’s adventures took her and her crew through historic moments such as Operation Frostbite (1946), Operation Sandy (1947), the Vietnam War, Operation Frequent Wind and the Evacuation of Saigon (1975), Operation Desert Storm (1991), and the rescue after the Mt. Pinatubo eruption. The USS Midway was decommissioned in 1992, and 12 years later in 2004 - was opened as the USS Midway Museum in San Diego, CA.
Years and millions of visitors later, we are so honored to preserve the legacy of the USS Midway and her crew.
