Explore Maritime History At The USS Midway Museum

A stay in San Diego isn't complete without a visit to the historic USS Midway Museum. Go back in time and explore the longest-serving aircraft of the 20th century. The museum houses over 60 exhibits throughout the Navy aircraft carrier. Take a self-guided audio tour around the museum narrated by Midway sailors. Check out the crew's sleeping quarters. See what it was like to do laundry in a steam-filled room, mail a letter at the post office, undergo surgery, and even be jailed at sea. Become an aviator on flight simulators and catch one of the docents for some of their personal stories.
