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.

We could have spent all day here. The history of the ship and the battle it was named after was just the beginning. You can go through the ship to see the living quarters and work rooms. There is a tour of the bridge and flight control area. There are numerous planes and helicopters that you can sit in as well as many areas that have volunteers giving talks

Toured on a Wed 2-5pm with my husband and two male teens 16 & 17 yrs. Impressive aircraft carrier. Tour includes the complete carrier including engine room, bridge, sick bay, laundry, kitchen, CPO mess, chapel, wardrooms, flight deck and more. Tour is self guided with audio tool provided for you (no ear buds needed). There is also a gift shop. The time we spent was very satisfying although we could have easily stayed longer.

There is so much to see on the Midway, honestly, expect to spend the day, especially if you are a history buff. A movie plays every hour all the way to the right, lines start forming 15 minutes before showtime. The day we were there, a volunteer was talking about his military service, and my husband had to be dragged away after 30 minutes, lol. Every tour comes with an audio machine to use at various spots for more info.
