USS Hornet Museum

USS Hornet Museum

With its participation in both World War II and the Apollo 11 manned moon mission, the aircraft carrier HORNET provides insight into the history of some of the most significant events of the 20th century.

Exhibits on the ship are numerous and include a flight simulator, Apollo exhibit, an art gallery, various period equipment and weapons, and the ship's theatre. Visitors can also explore the various living and working arrangements for soldiers who inhabited the ship.

We hope you enjoy our work.
