Full description
Take a self-guided audio tour onboard the world’s longest-serving aircraft carrier, the historic USS Midway. See the carrier’s 25 restored aircraft from the days of WWII to Operation Desert Storm. Visit areas throughout the Midway, from the crew's sleeping quarters to the pilots' ready rooms. Docents are available throughout the carrier and are eager to share their stories, anecdotes, and statistics, creating a picture of just how important the USS Midway was to the U.S. Navy. Most guests spend 3 to 4 hours exploring this historic aircraft carrier and learning its history. The included audio guide, available in 6 languages, will help you explore the dozens of highlighted areas across the massive ship.  There are family-oriented activities throughout the Museum. Included are 3 types of flight simulators, music videos, short films, climb-aboard aircraft and cockpits, and more. The Museum is located at the Navy Pier in downtown San Diego.

A unique opportunity to reflect and learn more about history. I chose not to do the audio tour because I like reading and watching the videos at my own pace. Walking through the areas was enlightening. Living in tight quarters is a test of character. We liked getting close up to the airplanes on the hangar deck. Tickets were easy to purchase online and $10 parking (limited) on site was convenient. Give at least 2 hours to enjoy.

Such a great experience! Make sure to get there early to avoid longer lines for the Bridge tour (and parking!) Plan to spend a good part of the day, there is SO MUCH to see! There is also a cafe (Cafe 41) where you can grab a bite and sit at the back of the ship. The views from the deck are amazing as well! Highly recommend!

We loved our time spent at this very well organized and informative museum. So much to see and learn about- lots of different kinds of presentations and we got the feel of what it might have been like to serve on a navy ship. We felt so proud of our military and the sacrifices made on our behalf then and now! Thank you for such a great tour!
