The USS Hornet spent almost three decades traveling the world's oceans in service to the United States. The USS Hornet Museum, a State and National Historic Landmark, is berthed at Pier 3 on the former naval air station in Alameda. The ship's active duty years spanned the 1940's - 60's. The historic aircraft carrier was a key participant in WWII, the Vietnam War, the Cold War and the recovery of the first two lunar landing space missions - Apollo 11 and 12. It was stored in a naval mothball fleet from 1970-1995. When the Museum opened in 1998, it was the only sea, air and space museum on the West Coast. The Museum is a great resource for local and international visitors. There are over a hundred restored spaces and dozens of exhibits to learn about the Hornets' career and what it was like to live and work aboard it.
