Owner description: 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."

Great way to experience history!!Awesome ship- I definitely could’ve spent several more hours on it. The docents are friendly and quite knowledgeable. It’s a humbling thing to be on such a ship that has seen so many things!

Give yourself plenty of time for this one.

As a Navy brat it was cool to see all the old-timers sharing their extensive knowledge of the ship, and life aboard ship.

Great place to spend a few hours. Lots of interesting things to see and great talks by very knowledgeable volunteers. Chatted with a ex pilot now volunteer who flew many missions back in the day, what a nice man he was took time to answer all our questions, thanks
