Experience one of America’s living symbols of freedom as nearly 50 years of world history come to life onboard a “city at sea” through a self-guided audio tour, 60 incredible life-like exhibits and 25 immaculately restored historical aircrafts aboard the USS Midway Museum on your next vacation to San Diego.
As the longest-serving Navy aircraft carrier of the twentieth century, and home to over 225,000 courageous young men and women over the years, it is fitting that the once USS Midway Aircraft Carrier is now one of San Diego’s finest and most sought after museums and is something you must see to believe.
Depending on the magnitude of your interest in military history and gratitude to our fearless men and women in uniform, you can expect to spend at least three to four hours aboard the Midway, and maybe even an upwards of eight depending on who you run into.
With eager museum docents wandering about throughout the vessel, you are bound to run into one of these living, historic knowledge-filled veterans who were once one of the enlisted Navy sailors aboard this enchanting vessel.
Feel free to ask them any questions you may have and be sure to listen respectfully to their stories if they decide to share, and thank them for their self-less service and sacrifice to our beautiful country.
After exploring the sleeping quarters, massive galley, post office, engine room, and even the ships very own jail, along with many other exhibits inside the ship, make your way onto the top of the flight deck. Here you will be able to see, hear and even climb inside some of our nation’s most historic types of war-time aircrafts.
Do your part in honoring, respecting and preserving our nation’s historical heritage for future generations by visiting the USS Midway Museum on your travel to San Diego.
