Skip the Line: USS Midway Museum Admission Ticket
The USS Midway was the US Navy's longest serving carrier of the 20th century (1945-1992), and the largest ship in the world for a decade, housing 4,500 crew! Now you can walk in the footsteps of 225,000 sailors on a self-guided audio tour narrated by former Midway sailors and officers.
More than 65 locations, from the engine room to the bridge, and 25 restored historic aircraft are on display. The
USS Midway also contains interactive exhibits and climb-aboard aircraft for all ages. Don't miss the flight simulators, gift shop and cafe.

We had traveled by Amtrak for my dad's 80th birthday to San Diego for a day at the Zoo. Our second day in town was for relaxing by the Sheraton Marina pool. Unfortunately we managed to land on one of the only cloudy days in San Diego (one of the sunniest cities on earth!) so we went to Trip Advisor to seek out an activity that would appeal to all of us -- from the 12 yo "tween" to the 80 year old grandpa. The USS Midway Museum seemed to offer something for everyone. From flight simulators, VR experiences and a movie theater to opportunities to "try out" a bunk in the service quarters this activity is definitely worth adding to your San Diego bucket list. I would highly recommend this as a "to do" when you have a half day in San Diego. Educational, interesting, exciting and a view of SD unlike any other.
My husband and I recently toured the USS Midway and we were both so impressed. What an amazing tour. To hear the stories and see the ship where all those men lived, the planes and helicopters was so cool. Being able to listen at each station/location really brought it to life. I would recommend this to everyone.
It was so well preserved and the reduced fare made it affordable for everyone. Hearing live conversations with real veterans made it real.
Lovely day spent on the USS Midway. All the volunteers on the boat chip in with talks about their experience during our walk around. Very interesting day.
I had one afternoon off during a business conference to explore. This was a lovely place to visit. Lots of history and wonderful people who work on the ship.
We truly enjoyed spending a few hours here. The grandchildren loved being able to sit in some of the planes. We were so impressed by the retired navy pilots who work on the USS Midway and share their true life experiences. Don't miss visiting this wonderful museum.
Don’t miss this awesome visit! And make sure you make time for the Voices of Midway movie for a look at the battle that changed the tide of the war. The ship is amazing and the docents are well-spoken and knowledgeable.
The staff are very patient and hospitable. We visited the facilities on all aircraft carriers. I like it very much.
Best tour ever! If youre a Top Gun fan or a military enthusiast - this is a must!
Very insightful tour, very informative about the history of the battle, the ship and planes etc. Highly recommended.
This tour was amazing!
Beautiful tour and very educational.
