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."

What a great experience! I am SO glad I tagged along on my grandson's field trip. Really amazing to see the inside of this grand old warrior. Wear comfortable shoes and make sure you have plenty of time. There is SO much to see.

The suggestion is 3+ hours to visit. We spent 3 hours and were rushing to the end. And did not see everything. Great audio tour and the docents were fantastic. The talk about how to land on the carrier should not be missed. Great insights....More

Very interesting. Many demonstrations. A must see when you are in this NAVY town. It's hard to believe that something this large can float. A good number of aircraft which once was aboard.
