I liked absolutely everything about this tour. This aircraft had been transformed to a historical, educational experience. From the planes on the aircraft carrier to the authentic displays in the rooms of the ship there is something to see for everyone. If you go to San Diego, this is a must-see.

The Midway is a little expensive as this sort of museum goes, but it's worth it for the experience. Seeing the crew quarters was great and walking around gives you a good sense of the lack of privacy on board a carrier.

Superbly presented military museum. This retired aircraft carrier dominates the waterfront in the centre of downtown San Diego - you really can't help noticing it. A large part of the ship is open to the public and the presentation is first rate. The tours are interesting and entertaining - although access is limited in some areas (tight ladders and stairways - and watch your head!). The flight deck has the best view of San Diego and there is a great open-air cafe on the port-side elevator!

This is an amazing real museum depicting life on an aircraft carrier, showing how the different ranks lived and worked together. You can even still smell the old dental area from its previous use. It takes hours to stroll through the different levels but you must end with a ride in the helicopter simulator...a must for the adventurous.
