Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

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.

Really cool experience. Set aside at least 4 hours because it’s big and there’s so much to see! I would definitely go again. Park right at the Midway (they only take cash - it was $10 to park for the whole day). Don’t do the temporary 3 hr street parking along the seaway.

Fantastic time spent here, but make sure you give yourself a good 6 hours at least, I went alone with 5 hours left before close and didn't have enough time to finish up the end of the ship. Everywhere you would imagine people working is about where you went. You got to see a short movie (13 min) about the ship's history before you started to explore the ship

This was a wonderful trip, our only issue is how many people are allowed in such tight spaces, but the history is immense and you get right up close to everything. We will go back on a less busy day to allow for some more in depth looking at everything there is to see.
