Grotarian Event – An Evening on the USS Midway

March 23, 2015 at 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm


It was the greatest naval battle in World War II.  In the course of less than 48 hours, the future of two world powers would be changed forever.  Midway, a thousand miles from nowhere, was the site where young American and Japanese pilots fought for control of the Pacific.  That day on the Midway, six minutes changed the world.

Being the name sake of this famous battle, and desiring to commemorate this important moment in history and honor those who served, the Museum has opened a 96 seat theater on board the ship.  It features a riveting multimedia movie and holographic experience entitled: Voices of Midway.

Join us on March 23 between 5:30 and 7:30 PM for our March Grotarian event featuring a reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres followed by a viewing of this new Midway presentation.

Here’s the menu to look forward to:
