My Dad was stationed on this ship in 1954-1955. He passed away when I was 4 years old. I always wanted to go on the ship that he served on in the Navy. We had a great time!

A quick 2 hour visit...was ok and glad I did it. If you purchase tickets at entrance it's $20.00 per person, or you can just go online with your cell phone or iPad and pay $18.00...save a few bucks.

Very impressed with the displays and volunteers at this museum. They help to bring the past alive with their information and sharing of their experiences in serving the nation as military members.

We happened to be in San Diego on July 4th, and spent most of our day on the Midway. I heartily recommend it: very informative and, especially to non-Americans like me, a thrilling atmosphere.

Worth the money and your time. I liked how you could go at your own pace and the audio tour. Bring a hat and a water bottle if it's hot.

One thing that the midway is, is impressive. The sheer size of this ship is breath taking. It has loads of history and lots of great things for the kids to look at. Very good floating piece of history.

Great experience. Enjoyed the island tour! Lunch at the fantail cafe was very good, but a little pricey.

The USS Midway museum is a must see if you are in San Diego. The selection of aircraft on the flight deck and internal to the ship is amazing. My family (with young children) particularly enjoyed the self guided below deck tour - looking at the map rooms, war rooms, radio rooms and captains rooms.
