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."

We arrived early in the day so the crowds were not too bad. We enjoyed this informative tour. There were many retired personnel to help if you had questions. We left our car in the parking lot ($10) and went down the street to the trolley station and took the city tour. It was a nice full day.

We visited the Midway Museum on 6/27 and had a wonderful experience which was helped by the assistance of two excellent employee's Ericka in the food court and the Mgr Luis. The entire tour was extremely interesting and the tour guides were very informative and interesting. I would highly recommend the museum for people of all ages.

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.
