Owner description: Located in downtown San Diego, the USS Midway (Museum) was America’s longest-serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century. Today, the interactive museum is an unforgettable adventure for the entire family as guests walk in the footsteps of the 225,000 young men who served on Midway. Visitors explore a floating city at sea, the amazing flight deck and its 29 restored aircraft, flight simulators, and are inspired in the Battle of Midway Theater, included with admission. Admission also includes a self-guided audio tour narrated by Midway sailors in English, Mandarin, Spanish, Japanese, French and German. Visiting Midway is a once-in-a-lifetime experience in San Diego, known around the world as "Navy Town, USA."

I love Military History, so this was right up my alley. Only complaint was people getting in the way of pictures and being rude towards the people trying to explain different parts of the ship. Loved it. A must see.

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.

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

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 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.
