We really enjoyed the Midway tour. It was neat that veterans who were on the ship during previous wars were our tour guides!!! Very informative!

Great presentation, good people working there and the areas with the real sailors telling you about the ship was great. The only thing i wish they offered was seeing the engine rooms etc.

It was fascinating to learn about the great history of the ship itself and the people on board and the planes and we also got to meet an actual veteran who flew planes from the ship during the war.

Amazing aircrafts on the ship! Great history, and the guides explained it very well. Too bad some things were closed due too COVID or else it would have been fantastic.

This was one of the most beautiful experiences we have ever had. The ship was amazing and so were all the aircrafts. We will definitely be coming back with the entire family.

This was a wonderful day spent. Loved all the docents that gave actual experiences they had on the ship. The exhibits were awesome. We stayed until close and still didn’t see everything. Such a good experience. Thank you.
