History Mystery
Overnight Investigation

Are the late night stories about the USS Hornet really true? Come spend the night on the Hornet and find out!

The Hornet would like to invite you to join us in an evening of after hours investigations onboard the ship. During this event you will learn about the history of Hornet while investigating the ship with a Hornet crew member during the midnight hour.


“Fun, fun, fun!!  I can't wait to come back!  It was an absolute pleasure, and you two were the BEST guides!!!
Cheers - Julie Lambirth

“I can't thank you enough for everything!!!!  The night tour and the trip back to the BART station. It was such a great night, one I will never forget!
I talked to some other ghost hunters about our experience and they were also impressed.  It's probably one of the best stories you will be able to share on future tours. I'm so glad we all had that experience together, I'm still talking about it.”

Dennis Tassone - Ny Ny

This is your chance to tour the ship after hours exclusively in small groups while investigating our well known “paranormal hot-spots.”
