The USS Hornet Sea, Air & Space Museum is aboard historic aircraft carrier USS Hornet. Museum Admission allows visitors to tour much of the ship on their own with access to our docent-led tours. The entrance to the ship is located on the main deck, called the “Hangar Deck”. Self-guided tours (with an optional, complimentary audio tour) include the Hangar Deck, the Flight Deck, and the Second Deck (immediately below the Hangar Deck).

Available Docent Tours vary day-to-day but the main tour locations are the “Island Superstructure,” which is the part of the ship extending above the Flight Deck and contains the Primary Flight Control, Navigation, Pilot House and Bridge stations, and the ship’s Engineering Spaces. These tours usually last around an hour and are complimentary for standard days (they may cost extra during special days or programming). Tours of other spaces may be available depending on the space requested and what docents are available.

There is far more to see and tour aboard than there are hours in the day! Plan on at least two to three hours and talk with the docents about what your greatest interest is. They will be happy to make recommendations about how to go about your visit!

Visitor Tips

Tips and guidelines to fully enjoy your visit to the USS Hornet Sea, Air & Space Museum!

Allow at least 2 to 3 hours for your visit

捕鱼大作战Allow at least 2 to 3 hours for your visit — there is a lot to see on the ship and more spaces are opened every month. Some areas of the ship start closing by 3 PM, so we recommend arriving no later than 2 PM for the engine room and other docent-led tours.

Please do not bring permanent markers, aerosol cans, or oversize bags

Please do not bring permanent markers or aerosol cans aboard the Museum。

Additionally, our hatches between decks can be narrow at times。 For your safety and the security of the Museum, upon arrival Security will ask that all bags larger than 12” x 8” x 12” are either returned to your car or kept in a rentable locker by Admissions for a small rental fee。 This includes backpacks, camera bags, tote bags, diaper bags, ladies purses, etc。

Please note: for safety reasons, backpack-style infant carriers are also not permitted.

The ship is mostly self-guided

The ship is mostly self-guided. A tour map and audio tour is available at the admissions desk and you can inquire about docent-led tours at Orientation.

There is plenty of free parking across the street

There is plenty of free parking across the street. Spaces are available for buses and RVs. Please, no vehicles on the pier.

Children must be with an adult at all times

捕鱼大作战For their safety, children must be supervised by an adult at all times。

Service animals are welcome. Pets and other animals are not allowed on the ship.

Service animals are welcome. Pets and other animals are not allowed on the ship. See service animal policy on our 捕鱼大作战Accessibility Information page.

Wheelchair and stroller accessibility is extremely limited

Due to the historic nature of the ship, wheelchair and stroller accessibility is extremely limited. A virtual tour is available for viewing on the Hangar Deck; ask the orientation docent for assistance. For more information, please see our Accessibility Information page.

Size & Height Restrictions

To ensure the safety of our visitors and crew, Engine Room, Fire Room, and Primary Flight Control tours are limited in group size and by visitor height. Our guideline is to allow adults and children taller than 48 inches to go on those tours to special locations. This policy is due to having to traverse very steep ladders and stairs, narrow walkways, and significantly raised thresholds that can prove extremely challenging.

Our Flight Simulator also has a height restriction of 38″.

Cameras are Welcome

Cameras are welcome, but we ask that photographs are taken for personal use only. Keep you and your camera safe by using the neck strap or wrist strap while exploring the ship.

For commercial or professional photographs, photoshoots, or filming, please contact 捕鱼大作战Private Events.

Talk to Volunteers on Ship

捕鱼大作战Talk to the many volunteers aboard the ship! They are great about sharing information about the ship, the restoration process, and their own experiences in the service. Many of our volunteers are veterans.

Docent Availability

Our Docents are unpaid volunteers. They tend to leave the ship early on weekdays. We can not guarantee that there will always be Docents available to take you on a tour. Audio tour devices are always available at Admissions.

Public Transportation

Public transportation from San Francisco via BART. In Oakland disembark at the 12th Street station and take a cab/Uber/Lyft to the Museum.  Another much more scenic option is to take a ferry from the SF Ferry Building at the foot of Market Street and a 20 minute ride will get you to either Jack London Square in downtown Oakland (cab/Uber/Lyft from there) or the same ferry docks across the estuary at the Alameda Main Street terminal which is a shorter cab/Uber/Lyft or a 2.1 mile walk.
