European travel agency selects Midway as nation’s best
While most Midway Museum visitors purchase their tickets on the ship’s website or at the ticket booth on Navy Pier, the museum also works with a number of online travel agencies in the United States and around the world to help sell admission tickets.
In 2020, the Midway won the Tiqets “Remarkable Venue Award” as the Best Museum in the U.S. Tiqets is one of the biggest online travel agencies in Europe.
“We rely heavily on our partnerships in the European market,” said Joe Wagstaff, Midway’s travel industry sales manager. “Tiqets aligns with Midway’s customer service philosophy and it’s amazing to be recognized with the best museum in the U.S. award for 2020, especially in light of the challenges facing the tourism industry over the past year.”
Winning the award was based on more than 750,000 user reviews submitted to Tiqets.
“Congratulations to the USS Midway Museum for winning the best museum award,” said Sue Warnke, Tiqets’ regional manager for the western United States and Canada.
Midway faced stiff competition from the Houston Museum of Natural Sciences, California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, and The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.
“This award highlights Midway’s commitment to the guest and it’s tremendously rewarding to be honored in this way,” said Joe.
