    USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum Tour

    The U.S.S. Midway is the longest serving aircraft carrier in US Naval History. It opened in 2004 as a naval aviation museum featuring exhibits, programs, and ship history.

    Prepare yourself for a lifetime memory aboard the USS Midway Museum. You'll explore a floating city at sea and relive nearly 50 years of world history aboard the longest-serving Navy aircraft carrier of the 20th century.


    Exhibits & Activities

    Admission includes a self-guided audio tour to 60 exhibits throughout the historic aircraft carrier and 29 restored aircraft.

    Exhibits range from the crew's sleeping quarters to a massive galley, engine room, the ship's jail, officer's country, post office, machine shops, and pilots' ready rooms, as well as primary flight control and the bridge high in the island over the flight deck. Especially popular are the museum docents you'll meet throughout the ship. Each is eager to share a personal story, an anecdote, or amazing statistic, adding to your amazement throughout your adventure.

    Family-oriented activities for all ages abound: two types of flight simulators, music videos, short films, climb-aboard aircraft and cockpits, interactive exhibits, "Ejection Seat Theater," and much more.
