USS Midway Exhibits
There is no better place to relive San Diego’s naval history than an audio tour aboard the USS Midway Museum. The rare museum is docked in the San Diego Harbor and offers visitors the opportunity to explore more than 50 exhibits onboard the ship. From youngsters with a lot of energy to retired servicemen reminiscing about their time in the military, everyone will enjoy exploring the historic USS Midway Museum.
Midway Museum Musts
The USS Midway Museum has 60 exhibits throughout the aircraft carrier. These exhibits walk visitors through what daily life was like for sailors aboard the ship. A self-guided audio tour guides visitors through the crew’s sleeping quarters, the ship’s galley, engine room, post office, jail, machine shops, pilot’s ready room, flight control deck, sick bay, laundry room, kitchen and dining hall, officer’s quarters, admiral’s war room and the control tower. If one doesn’t want to see all 60 exhibits, here are some of the most popular one’s not to miss: the sleeping quarters, the bridge, control tower, jail, engine room and the flight control deck.
The audio tour is narrated by former USS Midway crew members who tell stories as visitors walk through the narrow hallways and steep flights of stairs of the aircraft carrier, making it an exciting adventure. The tour concludes on top of the flight deck of the ship where 29 restored aircraft rest. Many visitors enjoy looking at the airplanes on the flight deck as well as taking in the amazing views of harbor. With the large size and flat surface, the flight deck is also a great area for kids to run around (if they’re not tired from the tour).
