About this activity

Prepare yourself for a lifetime memory aboard the USS Midway Museum! You'll explore a floating city at sea and relive nearly 50 years of world history aboard the longest-serving Navy aircraft carrier of the 20th century. 

Admission includes a self-guided audio tour to 60 exhibits throughout the historic aircraft carrier and 25 restored aircraft. Now THAT is pretty cool!

Exhibits range from the crew's sleeping quarters to a massive galley, engine room, the ship's jail, officer's country, post office, machine shops, and pilots' ready rooms, as well as primary flight control and the bridge high in the island over the flight deck. 

Kids can really use those imaginations as they walk around the various galleries decks, imagining what life would have really been like on the USS Midway.

Especially popular are the museum docents you'll meet throughout the ship. Each is eager to share a personal story, an anecdote, or amazing statistic, adding to your amazement throughout your adventure. (Most visitors spend 3-4 hours aboard Midway!)

Family oriented activities for all ages are also at the USS Midway Museum, including the very cool flight simulators!

So why not step back in time through the pages of history for your next family day out in San Diego? The adventure awaits!
