USS Midway Museum
Prepare yourself for a lifetime memory aboard the USS Midway Museum. You’ll explore a floating city at sea and relive nearly 50 years of world history aboard the longest-serving Navy aircraft carrier of the 20th century. Exhibits range from the crew’s sleeping quarters to a massive galley, engine room, the ship’s jail, officer’s country, post office, machine shops, and pilots’ ready rooms, as well as primary flight control and the bridge high in the island over the flight deck.
And nearby in the harbor district, you’ll find Kansas City Barbeque. Self-proclaimed as the “Top Gun Bar,” it’s known for being the filming location for scenes used in the film. Plus, it’s got some of the best BBQ in all of San Diego. Stop by to try it yourself after your visit to the USS Midway.
