To maintain a safe environment, capacity is limited onboard. Midway guests must purchase their tickets in advance at midway.org to guarantee entry over the Thanksgiving weekend (Friday, November 27th through Sunday, November 29th). The USS Midway Museum is closed on Thanksgiving Day.
We loved our tour of the Midway! Cannot wait to go back and see what we missed. So much history and we really appreciated the historians that gave their stories. We really enjoyed it!
Aunque no seas fan de la Marina de Estados Unidos es impresionante ver este portaaviones ahora convertido en museo! Si estás en San Diego no dejes de visitarlo!
Desde cualquier punto de vista, la visita a este increíble museo te hace pensar y reflexionar sobre la creación del sistema de armas mas destructivo del mundo. Tiene un formato muy amigable, donde puedes utilizar una radio programable (distintos idiomas) el cual relata la información o las distintas historias que dieron vida a esta ciudad flotante. Es para toda la familia, pero considerar que se camina bastante y hay muchas escaleras. Tienda de recuerdos, patio de comidas, simuladores, etc. Imperdible si vas a San Diego.
Step in to enjoy history and to appreciate and reflect on the sacrifice our servicemen made in Times past for this great country. I could spend hours, or days on this ship. It’s just so massive and every corner has a story to tell. I’ll surely go back again soon. Be prepared to spend at least a couple of hours here, 3 hours was not nearly enough.
We went with our 3 children (12 10 and 8) the information desk gives a pamphlet to "earn your junior wings" keeps the kids occupied for a while - we were there for 4 hours! At the end the girls went to get their wings and a Pilot from WW2 just happened to be there and presented them ! Highlight of their day! Also they were showing Top Gun on their Top deck that night - we did not go but how cool! They often have activities we were told.
If you go to San Diego the USS Midway a must see attraction! Make sure you give yourself enough time to tour and listen to the amazing volunteers tell their stories. It was a great day-wish we had more time!
