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."

A very unique and interesting attraction. Even without the audio tour, you still need at least an hour and half to see everything. Our 4 and 7 year old boys were very excited to see the ship.

Yes, there are no lockers on the ship as far as I know. But the guys/staff there are super helpful and I think if you tell them your ordeal, they are going to find a way! Hope you enjoy the tour ! (:
