USS Hornet Entry Admission

Discover the role of this national historic landmark in naval aviation, the defense of our nation and the exploration of space. The USS Hornet Sea, Air and Space Museum connects past and future generations through education and preserves the legacy of this vessel.

The success and effectiveness of an aircraft carrier exists in its ability to move at will in the powerful seas, but dependent on the skills of its highly trained pilots and aircrews and the specialized aircraft which operates from its flight deck. In World War II, the USS Hornet air groups consisted of a fighter (VF) squadron, a bombing (VB) squadron and a torpedo (VT) squadron. During the technology evolution of the 1950s, upgrades were made like electronic/early warning, photo-reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare aircraft. Dual-role aircraft provided aerial tanking and limited cargo capabilities while helicopters were essential to operations like search and rescue missions.

The museum has a growing collection of over 15 historic aircrafts with integral roles in the U.S. Military. There are rotating galleries and special exhibits ranging from the ship’s Sickbay to Boiler Room, the Brig to the Combat Information Center. During your visit you can explore most of the spaces on your own while also taking docent-led tours. You can examine the museum’s collection of over 10,000 artifacts and experience piloting a fighter jet through a flight simulator (additional ticket required). You will learn how the crew worked and lived aboard, about the U.S. Navy’s history and hear stories of honor and bravery.

Location: 707 W Hornet Ave, Pier 3, Alameda, CA 94501
Hours: Daily, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
