Know More about this tour

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.

Experience what it was like to be part of a "city at sea", explore galleys, officer's country, sleeping quarters and the engine room of the first Navy ship too large for the Panama Canal! You will be amazed by the 4-acre flight deck and the 360-degree panoramic view of downtown San Diego.

Located in Navy Town USA, a visit to the Midway is uniquely San Diego!

  • the Midway is huge, you can easily spend a good 4 hours there exploring, so plan on at least 3 hours minimum

  • Well worth a visit. Excellent museum and an absolute must in San Diego. Just to realise the size of this ship is amazing. Don't miss it! And with Viator tickets, we skipped the line. Excellent!

  • Well worth a visit, plenty to see and very interesting, good value for money

  • This Viator tour was awesome! Very interesting and fun seeing so many cool things aboard the ship! It saved us 10.00 and we skipped the line where everyone else was buying their tickets. My husband said If this really works and it's really this easy he will be very surprised!....well it was that easy...we bought our tickets while standing in front of the USS Midway Museum click done and they scanned my phone the bar code done! That easy. I would definitely recommend using Viator! Thank you Viator.

  • I went on this one rather reluctantly. We ended up spending three hours on the midway. The history was interesting, but what engaged me most was listening to vets who had served on the midway and are now docents. They were so passionate about what they had done and how wonderful the ship was that I left feeling like I had had a truly genuine experience. Went to late afternoon and the weekday in January. Very few tourists/visitors. A tour I would definitely recommend.

  • The Midway museum is great. We spent 5 hours on it and could have spent more. The docents were all extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. My cousin and his wife from out of town loved it.
    If you haven't been, you are missing one of the best things to do in San Diego.

  • The ship was a great tour. We spent the full 6 hours on the ship

  • It was an interesting experience. Due to time limitation, we spent about 2.5 hours. I think that we should have spent at least 4 hours.

  • Worth the time and seeing the most amazing hosts at the Museum

  • Having veterans on the ship describing experiences was a real plus!
