Great for a guy, meh, for a girl

Guys and kids love big machines. The tour covers massive parts of the ship and is worth it, arguably the best value in the city.

A 'must see' visit was recommended by my boss, and so on a San Diego cloudy day myself, wife & two children decided to give it a go. Well, I'm so happy we did! The day was so educational and entertains at the same day, and no better way to spend your day. We in fact spent 4 hours on... More

This is one of the most interesting attractions in SD. Our adult kids as well as our grandkids in grade and high school were amazed as were we at the depth of the relics and experience.

If your travels take you to San Diego, be sure to include the USS Midway Museum on your list of places to visit. Located on the harbor front along the Embarcadero, the USS Midway is a decorated aircraft carrier that has served in Vietnam and the Gulf War. Allow 3 to 4 hours for your visit if you want to...

Quite simply if you do nothing else when you're in San Diego please do this I cannot recommend it highly enough. For $20 ($18 online) you get to explore a aircraft carrier that has seen service in a number of conflicts. On the flight deck there are a number of old aircraft that make the trip even better.

We had a fun day on the Midway. It's interesting to see just to understand the scale of this ship. There are exhibits of actual aircraft. There are also guided tours of the bridge. It is a great part of our military history.

A great place to visit if you're in San Diego. Full of history and amazing stories from veterans. Beware not to visit on a really hot day as there is no air conditioning and it gets very hot on the ship.

You could easily spend several hours here. This boat is gigantic. The lower level of the boat was fascinating to me. There are probably 20 planes and helicopters on the runway level. The control tower climb is not for the out of shape or immobile.
