Definitely worth a visit
this is a great stop in San Diego. well worth the visit, plan on spending a few hours.
the ship is massive, a marvel of engineering, especially when considering it was built prior to computer-aided design and manufacturing. the self-guided tours are really well done, seeing the officers' quarters, kitchens, laundry rooms, etc. were really impressive. and there are lots of planes, with great descriptions of how there were used.
Awesome and Breathtaking
The movie is worth the time. The audio tour is great. Its all worth taking in. The hangar and flight desk are huge. Seeing all the parts of the carrier also a lot of fun. Makes you feel a great respect for our troops.
Exciting and Informative
Book tickets online to save standing in long queue. Great place to take children. Huge display of aircraft and access to the inside of the aircraft carrier with interactive activities for kids. The staff are knowledgable and really friendly and happy to answer questions. We had a good afternoon on board the Midway. Highly recommend
