So easy to sign in and purchase tickets right as we walked in without standing in the separate line. We knew it was going to rain so startedat the flight deck on top and worked our way down. When the rain came, we were able to stay mostly dry!As an engineer with equipment on board this ship, I found the tour fascinating. My hubby is tall and had to really each his head! Like the self guided I formation to listen to as well as talking to all the volunteers. Well worth the price.

My wife and I enjoyed the USS Midway Museum. There is a lot to see and a lot to learn. For perspective on my review, I am not a Navy veteran or military wannabe. It took a lot of restraint for me not to point out to the guide that based on his knowledge the Gulf of Tonkin incident was obviously a fraud. Clearly, I am not a shill for the Navy.Be aware that there is a lot of walking, and most of the stairways are small and require you to duck your head. (I am 5'10' tall). There are plenty of guides eager to answer questions or show you parts of the ship. There are also free receivers that connect via Bluetooth (?) at the various exhibits and provide narration.One warning: Do NOT buy the Chinese food at Cafe 41. My wife and I took two bites of soggy, mushy, funny tasting steam table food and decided not to take a chance. We tossed out $30 of food and walked to The Fish Market (San Diego, not Del Mar!). Our visit was on a Monday, and I suspect the food was left over from Sunday.

The self-guided tour with audio devices was very well organized and the docents throughout the ship were great with stories and information that brought the experience to life. But the highlights were the docent pilots who gave the launching and landing presentations. They were incredible--with humor and heart--and knowing that they actually flew these planes was awesome. I'm grateful that I'm at a time in my life where my politics don't get in the way of learning about our military history. I was also reminded that it's time that our country take better care of our veterans and active duty personnel including their families, who also sacrifice.

I’ve visited the ship while on a biz trip to Dan Diego in late August. Simply amazing and I’ve already been to several aircraft / ship museums in the world. It’s pretty worth every penny of the admission. Several planes can also be seen and the lower deck has plenty of attractions to spend your time as see you fit. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the store located on the lower deck, too, which has several interesting items, though a little pricey.

Excellent. Recommend Junior Pilot program for any children. Also a great way to see all parts of the ship.

Having a vet there telling his story was so amazing. I appreciated that the most. Everything was done so perfectly for learning and entertaining. I could have spent more time if we had it. Even the food was amazing!

Very educational and the Docents were very personable and willing to share their experiences. Want to come back again.
