The Midway would be among the tallest buildings in downtown San Diego if you stood it up on land! There is so much to see that it will literally take hours to take it all in. Museum just reopened in time for summer, and it was crowded on Memorial Day weekend. Make sure to buy your tickets in advance if you can.

USS Midway Museum

The USS Midway is a retired aircraft carrier now serving as a museum on San Diego’s waterfront. During its 47 years of operation—including a decade as the largest ship ever commissioned—the Midway had around 225,000 sailors serve above and below its decks. Today, visitors can follow in the shoes of sailors and pilots and experience life aboard this city at sea.

  • Size: a full aircraft carrier, with 30 restored Navy aircraft and more than 60 exhibits sprawled above and below its deck
  • Eye Catcher: WWII planes on the hangar deck, including the SBD Dauntless dive bomber
  • Below Deck: galley, sick bay, engine room and everything else that kept the floating city operational
  • Museum Guides: docents providing first-hand accounts of life at sea, or an included audio tour narrated by Midway sailors, available in 6 languages
  • Don’t Miss: Voices of Midway – a 15-minute multimedia presentation on the most important naval battle in WWII for which the ship is named
  • Hands-On Activities: full-motion flight simulators (extra charge); climb-aboard cockpits; knot-tying demonstrations
  • Pro Tip: It takes a while to see everything in the museum; most visitors spend three–four hours aboard the carrier
  • Special Programs: WWII veteran meet-and-greets on select days. Docent talks on the flight deck describing how to land or launch an aircraft on a carrier
