The Guides were super nice! My family and I spent good 4 hours in there! My most favorite thing was the “Simulator”. You can feel like you are actually on the airplane. It was really fun! :) especially when the workers are super friendly and awesome! I am so thankful for going to USS Midway Museum!
A must see attraction in San Diego! The USS Midway Museum is a fantastic piece of Naval history and insight. So much important history and access to all different parts and areas of the ship. There are great military veterans all over to help and guide all the guests to offer some useful information. All employees really know the history and are so nice. Parking is available right in front of the Museum which is very convenient.
