This monument was really cool. The size of the statue was huge, perfect for selfies with the family. There's a paid parking lot right next to the monument (which is next to the docked USS Midway) and is also a 9 min walk from Seaport Village. Best of all, it was free!

From a famous photograph taken at the end of World War 11. We were there when some military visited. The guy pictured was pretty aggressive - by today's standards this probably would be unacceptable. But it was 1945 - we've learned a lot since then

We got a good look at the UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER STATUE, on our last visit to the USS Midway Museum.

It's a pretty impressive thing, and I remember when it came to San Diego.

I never really figured out why it is here given that the scene originally happened in New York, but its a great photo opportunity to re-enact the scene in a pleasant park by the water. I'd recommend coming if in Downtown.

of a sailor kissing a girl. I guess it's iconic, but it seemed sort of odd to us. Different strokes!

This is an absolutely fantastic sculpture, located in Tuna Harbour park.
The sculpture is very romantic and couple of all ages try to mimic the pose while taking photos of themselves.

This beautiful statue of a sailor when taking leave from her fiance is huge and imposing. It is located next to the Midway air carrier.

You cannot miss this statue when visiting the USS Midway. It was located next to a parking lot by the Fish Market. The USS midway made a nice backdrop to frame this iconic image taken right after the end of World War II was announced.

The statue just towers over everything and seems to capture the couple from the photo.

Well worth the short stop before or after the museum.

The statue of these two iconic characters kissing is huge. It is far bigger than. I expected and have a magic about it. It symbolises so many things and the end of the second world war just one other. The USS Midway as backdrop is perfecting
