An aircraft carrier that spent three decades traveling the world while serving our nation is today one of California’s most unique museum experiences.

Located on the southernmost pier of the former Naval Air Station Alameda, visiting this museum ship is a must for those with an appreciation of American history. Not to mention, the experience itself of exploring such a massive ship is something to remember!
