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."

Did the tour today on the Midway. Very crowded, toured the Constellation in Charleston, SC and this carrier seemed a bit more commercialized.

It is an atraction in San Diego that you cannot miss. As an aviation enthusiast, i can tell you that the Midway is an experience to visit. It is very well kept and you will find explanations to every thing you can see and touch.

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
