Tours & Programs
Chart your group’s course to Alameda and visit the ship today! While the Museum is open daily for General Admission it offers several specialty tours to our guests, which are listed below.
About General Admission: The Museum offers complimentary docent-led tours of the Engine Room*, Navigation Bridge, and more according to docent availability. Visitors may sign up for these tours at the Museum’s Orientation area upon arrival. An audio tour and map of the ship are also included with admission. Guests can self-tour about 75% of the Museum. *Due to safety concerns, all guests in an Engine Room Tour must be at least 48 inches in height.
The goal of each of the Museum’s educational program is to use our unique environment to teach science and history concepts in an interactive and fun manner and each program features a tour and hands-on activities.
Groups of 15 or more can make advanced reservations for a Group Tour. Signing up is recommended, as groups save on General Admission and can reserve a private Docent Tour, a ride on the Flight Simulator, and even lunch in our Officer’s Wardroom!
Morning Admiral Tours: Restoration Spaces
Explore the ship early in the morning to receive a special tour of areas aboard the USS Hornet Sea, Air & Space Museum that have not yet been opened to the public or have limited daytime access.
It was a great trip and the docents do a fantastic job with the tours while also protecting this important part of our history.
