Create a lifetime memory by exploring a historic U.S. Navy aircraft carrier!  The USS Midway was the Navy’s longest serving carrier of the 20th century (1945-1992) and the largest ship in the world for a decade!  Now you can walk in the footsteps of 225,000 sailors on a self-guided audio tour narrated by former Midway sailors and officers (available in EN, FR,GR, SP, JP, & Mandarin).  More than 60 locations—from the engine room to the bridge—and 29 restored historic aircraft.  Interactive exhibits and climb-aboard aircraft for all ages.  Don’t miss the flight simulators, gift shop and café.  Elevator access to most exhibits on what once was a city at sea, population 4,500!

Located on downtown San Diego’s Embarcadero alongside Navy Pier (910 N. Harbor Drive).  Open daily, 10-5 closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Days.  Last admission at 4pm.  You may pay for private vehicle parking on Navy Pier four hours.  AX, DS, MC, VI.
