Closing Event - Dinner aboard USS Midway Aircraft Carrier
Experience Life at Sea Without Leaving Port!
Imagine experiencing life at sea aboard one of America’s longest-serving aircraft carriers. Visitors to the USS Midway Museum enter a floating city at sea and walk in the footsteps of 225,000 Midway sailors who served our country and upheld the American ideals of strength, freedom and peace.
The USS Midway Museum is an unforgettable adventure for the entire family. Guests can spend the evening exploring more than 60 exhibits with a collection of 29 restored aircraft. The self-guided audio tour, narrated by Midway sailors, brings the carrier's history to life. Those who dare can "take to the sky" aboard flight simulators (no additional fees for NERAOC participants).
