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.

Really well organised tour. Audio tour is free and very good. Must have it to appreciate the history of the ship. Indeed and in general there is lots of information available about the role of the ship. The staff are extremely attentive. Allow 3 hours minimum. Restaurant in the hanger is ok.

The Midway is a facinating history of what the navy went through and goes through when describing carrier life. Seeing how the thousands of sailors lived and worked on a functioning ship makes one appreciate the hard work and personal sacrifices they make for our security. Take your time to explore all the areas. It’s a complicated machine to understand but well worth taking the time.

I was so impressed with the Midway Museum. Even our 15 year old grand daughter loved it. To walk in the shoes of sailors and pilots was quite the experience. We took our time and was there about four hours. Be prepared to go up and down a lot of steps. Wheel chairs are allowed, but you don't get to go down into the belly of the ship with a wheelchair. The tour was laid out so you never got lost. I don't know how sailors never got lost on that ship.
