“Maritime Museum of San Diego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Another excellent attraction and adjacent to the USS Midway. You can explore several different types of ship from old sailing ships to submarines. Great for kids and adults alike! We thoroughly enjoyed going round all the ships. Very interesting.

“Old ships and submarines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This was a wonderful tour, so informative and interactive. Self guided if you wish. The submarines were interesting to say the least and the ships were amazing. Don't miss this even if you think you aren't interested.
