Full description
Take a self-guided audio tour onboard the world’s longest-serving aircraft carrier, the historic USS Midway. See the carrier’s 25 restored aircraft from the days of WWII to Operation Desert Storm. Visit areas throughout the Midway, from the crew's sleeping quarters to the pilots' ready rooms. Docents are available throughout the carrier and are eager to share their stories, anecdotes, and statistics, creating a picture of just how important the USS Midway was to the U.S. Navy. Most guests spend 3 to 4 hours exploring this historic aircraft carrier and learning its history. The included audio guide, available in 6 languages, will help you explore the dozens of highlighted areas across the massive ship.  There are family-oriented activities throughout the Museum. Included are 3 types of flight simulators, music videos, short films, climb-aboard aircraft and cockpits, and more. The Museum is located at the Navy Pier in downtown San Diego.

They said it was a really cool way to spend 4 hours.. I thought there's no way, I've never spent that long at any museum, I'll be able to blast though this. I take it all back. We were there for a little over 4 hours and I'm still not even sure I saw it all. It's awesome to see how people lived and worked on the ship. It's a floating town. Very cool.

Excellent day out that will take you 4 hours if you do it properly - talk to the yellow caps as they have some great stories. You are allowed access to large sections of the carrier and this gives you a real feel for what the troops went through and how valliant they have been fighting for freedom.

A unique opportunity to reflect and learn more about history. I chose not to do the audio tour because I like reading and watching the videos at my own pace. Walking through the areas was enlightening. Living in tight quarters is a test of character. We liked getting close up to the airplanes on the hangar deck. Tickets were easy to purchase online and $10 parking (limited) on site was convenient. Give at least 2 hours to enjoy.
