What people are saying about USS Midway Museum

We could have spent all day here. The history of the ship and the battle it was named after was just the beginning. You can go through the ship to see the living quarters and work rooms. There is a tour of the bridge and flight control area. There are numerous planes and helicopters that you can sit in as well as many areas that have volunteers giving talks

It was really cool to see the inside of the ship. Plus hear from people you were actually on the ship.

Buying online tickets was easy, quick entry when we arrived. Staff was friendly and helpful.

The mannequins really help visualize what these men had to deal with!

Quick access into the museum with the prepaid ticket.
