Private Docent Tour of the USS Midway Museum

  • USS Midway Museum 910 North Harbor Drive San Diego, CA, 92101 United States (map)

The USS Midway served as a Naval aircraft carrier longer than any other ship in the 20th century, and was at one point the largest ship in the world. It was active in the Vietnam War and Operation Desert Storm, and now rests in the Navy Pier in downtown San Diego where it serves as a museum and historical relic. 

Join fellow Cornellians for a private tour of the Midway museum which will be held before the general public arrives. After the tour, the group will have the opportunity to explore exhibits using the self-guided tour. 

Directions and instructions for boarding will be provided two weeks prior to the event.  Elevator access is available to the flight deck.  Certain parts of the tour are only accessible by ladder.

Tickets are $25 for our private tour, just $5 more than the general admission price. Tickets will be sold up until Wednesday, January 24th, or until the event is full.
