USS Midway Museum, a REAL aircraft carrier…fun for the entire family!
Create a once in a lifetime memory exploring the USS Midway, the longest-serving U.S. Navy aircraft carrier of the 20th century! Imagine living aboard a floating city at sea with 4,500 shipmates, where you can explore galleys, officer’s country, sleeping quarters, and the 4 acre flight deck. Admission includes a self-guided audio tour to over 60 locations, from the engine room to control tower, narrated by Midway sailors who lived or worked in each.
Family-oriented activities for all ages abound! Check out the new child’s audio tour with content geared specifically for 7-12 year olds. Take the kids and explore climb-aboard aircraft and cockpits, walk through helicopters, ride two types of flight simulators, climb in bunks, and don’t miss Battle of Midway Theater featuring a 14 minute riveting multimedia movie about the Battle of Midway "Voices of Midway". Come to San Diego... Take the Family to sea without leaving Port!
The USS Midway Museum is open daily at 10 am. Last admission is at 4 pm and the ship closes at 5 pm. We are closed Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
