It wasn't crowded at all. We bought our tickets online and went right through the gates, checked in and started our tour. We received listening devices for different points throughout the museum too. It was all very easy and fun to see all the generations of planes and the history of the Midway and other points of different eras of wars.

I visited the USS Midway Museum during the COVID-19 pandemic, which was actually good because it was less crowded than I could hope for! I really enjoyed listening to the stories of the veterans and having all the equipment and functions explained by them! The planes and helicopters on the deck are very interesting and the view on SD downtown and Coronado Island are great!

Very informative tours presented by former/retired military and/or spouses. Docents share personal experiences and are happy to still serve their country by honouring the USS Midway, its history and it’s vitality. The USS Midway Museum is a surreal snapshot of those who serve and protect our freedom - both past, present & future
