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."

I was very impressed with the USS Midway museum. Very similar to the USS Intrepid in NY, they divide the experience into three elements. A tour of the ship herself and what it was like to live on board, a tour of the flight deck...More

A wonderful place for military fans. There are several types of aircraft on the deck. Do not miss the 30-min guide to the bridge.

We visited with grandchildren. This is a marvelous museum with lots of veterans there in person or via recordings and pictures to tell about their experiences on the Midway. The children thoroughly enjoyed it. Many things with which they could interact and learn.

Great museum! Very well run, and so interesting with the audio tour and having actual servicemen there to tell about their experience and answer questions. A definite visit for any San Diego trip!

A must for history fans. We all four enjoyed the tour of the Midway. Highly-recommend for all ages! You can take as long or as little time as you wish on the self-guided tour.
