USS Midway – Home to San Diego Military Legacy
Memorial Day is nearly upon us and The USS Midway Museum has a series of events to inspire you near your San Diego home during Legacy Week, beginning Saturday, May 26th. Saturday morning at 9 a.m., families are invited to a veterans wreath remembrance ceremony to honor the fallen, encourage patriotism, and appreciate military personnel who are serving today. This inspiring event allows attendees to enjoy free admission to the USS Midway Museum following the ceremony, as well, making it worth the drive from your La Jolla home.
That evening at 7:30 p.m., Three Dog Night will be performing live along with World Class Rockers. Tickets are available at the USS Midway website. From the 26th though the 28th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. visitors can also visit the museum’s newest exhibit, The Battle of Midway Experience, and learn how a six minute battle changed the world. Also open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (May 26th to May 29th) is the Adventure Discovery Zone, where hangar bays morph into a Discovery Zone with active military command units, special exhibits, restoration activities, and military equipment.
The museum calendar is full of so much to do, including an opportunity to win the “Flight of a Life Time” in a B-17 bomber, that you’ll need to plan out your Memorial Day visit. Click here to learn more about the USS Midway Museum or to purchase concert tickets.
