Overview

Located in downtown San Diego, the USS Midway (Museum) was America’s longest-serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century. Today, the interactive museum is an unforgettable adventure for the entire family as guests walk in the footsteps of the 225,000 young men who served on Midway. Visitors explore a floating city at sea, the amazing flight deck and its 29 restored aircraft, flight simulators, and are inspired in the Battle of Midway Theater, included with admission. Admission also includes a self-guided audio tour narrated by Midway sailors in English, Mandarin, Spanish, Japanese, French and German. Visiting Midway is a once-in-a-lifetime experience in San Diego, known around the world as "Navy Town, USA."

Have been here in past before kids and still have same feelings about. Proud, in awe and excited are fair descriptions of carrier and aircrafts. Thankful for all that have, do and will serve for others. An easy reminder of profound selflessness and greater good.

Great ship, great museum, convenient parking. If you like planes, this is a no brainer. As a female pilot, I was in heaven!

Did the tour today on the Midway. Very crowded, toured the Constellation in Charleston, SC and this carrier seemed a bit more commercialized.

It is an atraction in San Diego that you cannot miss. As an aviation enthusiast, i can tell you that the Midway is an experience to visit. It is very well kept and you will find explanations to every thing you can see and touch.

The Seal tour is a local favorite because of the unique ability to see San Diego from land and sea. I would say the tour is definitely enjoyable and worth your time. Enjoy your visit to San Diego.
