“Wonderful visit through WWII history...”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Allow a few hours to explore all levels, listen to headset tour, read displays, get a snack in the restaurant. Take water because it can get warm and some might feel claustrophobic in lower narrow hallways. Aircraft on upper desk is impressive.

“Can't be missed”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

This is a piece of history that you must see. There is soooo much to see that I can't pick a highlight. The flight deck is full of historical planes.

“Surprisingly enjoyed by the whole family”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Our family of 5 (kids aged 7, 9, 12) visited last March. We didn't anticipate that our kids would love it as much as they did. We had allowed 2.5 hours but it clearly wasn't enough as our kids were very interested in listening to and reading a lot of the audio tour.

“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

The Midway experience was outstanding. Loved learning about the ship and it's history along with all of the aircrafts. I most enjoyed visiting with the retired service men! What a wonderful generation of dedicated individuals!
