Thanks to Groupon, we were able to get 1/2 price tickets to tour the USS Hornet - and we finally took advantage of this deal last Sunday. We met up with our friends Jason & Jonah, and had a blast running around the ship (well the kids were running anyhow!), checking out the cool artifacts, soaking up all the history held within that ship, admiring the restored airplanes and helicopters, and taking in gorgeous views of the Bay and the City from the flight deck. I highly recommend checking out the USS Hornet, especially if you're a history buff!
Welcome to the USS Hornet Museum
The Aircraft Carrier USS HORNET Museum is a national treasure, having participated in two of the greatest events of the 20th century -- World War II and the Apollo 11 manned space mission.
Now peacefully moored at historic Alameda Point on San Francisco Bay, the USS HORNET is a timeless memorial to those who defended our American values and to those who have pursued America's technological advancements.
