USS Midway Museum

Admission included


Visit a San Diego icon and walk on board the USS Midway Museum aircraft carrier, docked right in the San Diego Bay.

You’ll get a headset with pre-recorded information (available in English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese and Japanese) so you can go on a self-guided tour of the ship’s 60 exhibits and collection of 29 beautifully restored aircrafts. The audio tour is narrated by Midway sailors who bring the Midway’s history to life with stories of their first-hand experiences of living aboard the ship while at sea for months at a time.

On the tour, you’ll learn all about the ship’s nearly 50 years of service and operation and the over 225,000 sailors that served aboard the craft through the museum’s fascinating exhibits, multimedia displays, and interactive experiences—you’ll even get to see inside the ship’s jail, sleeping quarters, and flight control deck.
