The USS Hornet Sea, Air & Space Museum strives to make the aircraft carrier as original as possible to its time in service. We have a team of dedicated and talented volunteers that strive to restore each area to the finest of detail. Currently the ships second deck has a majority of the spaces (rooms) restored. There are also several major areas of the third deck that also restored and available for Docent led tours.
The Museum has permanent exhibitions throughout the ship for you and your family to enjoy. They pertain to a certain parts of the United States Navy history and tell great stories of honor and bravery
