An excellent experience exploring both above and below decks. A wealth of information is displayed as well as amazing aircraft both up on the flight deck and below. There were ex servicemen giving very interesting talks which provided an additional insight into the ship's history....More

USD Midway was very informative. The many planes and nooks and crannies are something to explore. We did the simulator and it was fun. A word of advice, if you are afraid of heights, I wouldn't recommend it. The flight deck is very high.

The ship is manned by the greatest volunteers. They treat you like you are gold and can not do enough for you to make your experience the best in town.

The USS Midway is a must see when you are in San Diego. We all enjoyed it very much. For the kids they have a special tour: when they finish it they get a nice reward. You can spend between 2 to 6 hours here.

The USS Midway was commissioned shortly after the end of WW2 and saw active service up until the first Gulf War in 1991 and beyond before becoming a museum moored in San Diego.
