USS Midway Museum
This year, the USS Midway Museum at Navy Pier at the San Diego Harbor celebrates its 10-year anniversary! Thanks to all of San Diego and supporters across the nation, the USS Midway Museum is the most-visited naval ship museum in the world!
Guests can spend the day exploring the collection of 29 restored aircraft. The self-guided audio tour, narrated by USS Midway sailors, brings the carrier’s history to life. You’ll see the crew’s sleeping quarters, the galley, the engine room, the ship’s jail, and the pilots’ ready rooms, as well as primary flight control and the bridge high in the island over the flight deck and many more.
And those who dare can “take to the sky” aboard one of two flight simulators. Come visit the museum and make USS Midway memories!
