The Aircraft Carrier Ship called USS Midway stands in San Diego, a reminder of the country’s formidable military prowess. But this ship hasn’t been put there to intimidate political anemies.

The Midway was the planet's biggest warship when it was first built. It has been named after the battle of Midway. This formidable ship was a part of many wars. In the Vietnam War it was an important strategic tool and was one of six bearers sent to battle Iraq throughout operation Desert Storm. This flight deck has seen many a plane and rocket soar into the sky ready for battle.

Uss Midway Museum, San Diego Reviews - Write a Review
Awesome guides, awesome place to visit! We spent nearly 4 hours exploring and learning about the history of the Midway, and recommend planning enough time to enjoy it. You should be physically capable of climbing lots of stairs to get around. Fun for families, though if we’d had kids with us don’t know if their attention spans would have allowed for 4 hours but we (2 adults) sure enjoyed it!
Great museum. We especially love the Rosie the Riveter docent. OK, she's my daughter, so I might be biased. Seriously, it's a great museum. Evidence of the museum's quality can be found in the countless volunteer hours by Midway veterans. This isn't a Disney experience. This is an important piece of military history, treated with great respect by those who work there. Yet it's a hands-on experience.
An excellent museum displaying much of what life aboard a flat top is like. Many types of aircraft that were launched from her deck are also displayed and able to be examined closely. This is both a magnificent ship that has served in the Vietnam War and the Gulf War, and a piece of history that all should experience and show their respect. Many of the tour guides are former crewman who sailed and lived aboard her. This was such a bonus! Learning the history of this fighting ship from someone who was there made this experience so much more enjoyable. Discounts for veterans, active duty service members, and free for our new brothers and sisters from recruit training. Bravo Zulu, 41
I'm not a history buff at all in this was not on my list of things to do but I loved it! We spent 4 hours there and could have spent more. Lots to see and very interesting. Many of the docents are retired Navy and we're very knowledgeable.
Enjoyed the self-guided tour. Went with two children 8 and 6 years old and two adults. Total cost around 75- $85 for tickets only. Meals are pricey so eat before you go aboard. Bring water as you'll see hiking a lot up and down decks. Be prepared for a workout. There is a cafe and lots of places to hang out and rest. The flight simulators take two people at $8 a piece for a total of $16 per ride. Total cost out the door was over $150 but totally worth it. If you're a veteran you'll get a discount and a sticker that says "I served". The volunteers were just awesome.
