From what I remember, this was a fun tour!
2nd Time back to Midway and still haven't experienced all she has to offer yet. The Veterans onboard willing to share their time and stories make this a great experience for young and old alike. The audio tapes are a must. Lots of history on show.
Strongly recommend the skip the line option as there can be a long line at times to collect/buy tickets, especially earlier in the morning. Ask the attendants if unsure as the skip the line ticket isn't clear you can go straight to the entrance or whether you need to line up.
Suggest you do the flight simulators onboard as they are good fun.
The café onboard fills up too so have a coffee or snack/lunch early, before the rush.
This is an amazing self-guided tour through the ship named after the Midway Island battle in WWII. It gave a lot of information on the WWII battle and its roll in the Vietnam War, and as you go through most areas of the ship you will get a feel for how the navy men lived while on board. There are also many fighter planes on display on two of the decks. We roamed the ship for almost 4 hours and still did not see a few things we wanted to. I purchased this tour for my husband as a surprise and I was just as awestruck as he was. We will definitely go back and recommend this museum to everyone.
very nice piece of history
This is an absolute MUST SEE and DO in San Diego...the best experience of many other museums and similar activity...
Outstanding. We only had 3 hours and believe you need 5 or 6 to see it all.
Great ship with plenty to suit all the family. Allow at least 4 hours!
What a great learning experience and insight into the history, as well as the operational functionality of the ship and crew. Audio tour is a must for this as it gives you 1-2 minutes overview of each area of the boat. It will take you approximately 90 minutes to go through all the different areas, which are numbered in order.
Kids loved the planes....
This is fantastic! Not to be missed!
