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."

Amazing visit to this aircraft carrier! The scale is incredible, and the large number of aircraft on display is awesome. To walk around this huge ship left me nearly speechless. The Island tour is a must-see. The volunteer guides do a great job, and it...More

If in San Diego a must do. We learned so much about naval aviators and the Midway history. The yellow hats are friendly, proud and very accommodating. A full day is needed to do it all. Linda at the theatre was great. Good for kids...More

Highly recommended a visit! You can spend all day on the ship just walking around and taking it all in. Very nice people on board “yellow hats”. They were very nice to talk to and learn from! A must see

The ship itself was very interesting to tour. Listening to the veterans speak about how the planes landed and took off and about their various experiences really added to the experience.

Although not a place of business, I do what I am told. Lots of history and visuals to see. Price is about 25 US. Well worth it if you have a few hours to spare.

it was really well thought out with the audio to play at your own pace through the museum. It's huge and so many different rooms. It gives you an experience as if you were really back in time when it all happened. Definitely recommend it....More
