“It was great.. enjoyed the history and the experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Disliked:When we got to the location, there was suppose to be free parking, but we arrived around noonish and then the lot was full. Only place we found was across from the ship/ same side of the road, and it was metered and limit of 2 hours... so we had to go back after two hours and put in more coins.. we wasted some valuable time

Liked: The history of the ship and the self-guided tour.. we had 4 hours and yet we didn't see it all. If you want to participate in the talks they give and see all the ship plan on at least 4 hours or more.

“Brilliant Museum”

The Aircraft carrier is amazing. The tours by ex-navy along with the audio tour make it a excellent day out

“USS Midway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Expect to spend a few hours on it and bring cash. Try the flight simulator and if you are tall then there will be a lot of head ducking.

“We were in Awe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

We were all in Awe of this Magnificent ship. We spent hours traveling on all the decks. The information available for us to read was so informative. We would definitely come here again.

“Remarkable Piece of History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Very thorough and informative. Having the audio tour was great. So much bigger than expected, and I expected it to be huge! Prepare to walk a lot!
