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."

We went with my family and we enjoyed. I am not a military fan, however i think that is an interesting place. We went with children also interesting. They can see the planes and many interesting topics. Also the view it s nice.

Loved the aircraft carrier - it is big! Lots of good discussion with veterans. Did not like all of the commercialization inside the carrier especially the photography - like Disney.

please sit and listen to the guy on the roof when he explains about the landing and taking off of the jets is awesome. souveniers are expensive. Dont forget to get picture with the marine and nurse kissing statue outside the ship

We drove a little pass the ship to a park and the parking there was free - it was very close. The parking area is on the same side of the road as the Midway.
