    Hi Ej, from what I can figure out the Midway is a tourist attraction as well as a museum, apparently you can have group dinners on board and several other functions. Sounds like a good Idea for you next Birthday Party mate, we can all meet in the Wardroom of the Midway to celebrate....lol

    True enough. I visited her in June 2007. The Midway is the #2 visited maritime Musuem in the US. Second only to the Arizona Memorial.

    The flight deck is the only thing joining the two hulls... this would make a perfect candidate for one of the ships thats gets split down the middle, can't see any elevators
