Located in downtown San Diego, the USS Midway (Museum) was America’s longest-serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century. Today, the interactive museum is an unforgettable adventure for the entire family as guests walk in the footsteps of the 225,000 young men who served on Midway. Visitors explore a floating city at sea, the amazing flight deck and its 29 restored aircraft, flight simulators, and are inspired in the Battle of Midway Theater, included with admission. Admission also includes a self-guided audio tour narrated by Midway sailors in English, Mandarin, Spanish, Japanese, French and German. Visiting Midway is a once-in-a-lifetime experience in San Diego, known around the world as "Navy Town, USA."

Awesome place to visit. You can feel the history as you enter the aircraft carrier. Great tours given by retired Navy personal. Plan on taking lots of pictures as they have many planes and helicopters to view on board.

This is a great place to visit to experience part of American history. The self guided tour is very well done plus there are tour guides when you visit the bridge. If you are a veteran and 55+ it is the best deal in town.

My opinion is the Safari Park is a different experience than the Zoo. The Safari park is much more of an open area with a more realistic feel than the SD Zoo. Both are well worth your time but they are purposefully designed... More

The Seal tour is a local favorite because of the unique ability to see San Diego from land and sea. I would say the tour is definitely enjoyable and worth your time. Enjoy your visit to San Diego.
