San Diego California Visitor Information

USS Midway Museum

Imagine experiencing life at sea aboard one of America’s longest-serving aircraft carriers. Visitors to the USS Midway Museum enter a floating city at sea and walk in the footsteps of 225,000 Midway sailors who served our country and upheld the American ideals of strength, freedom and peace.

The USS Midway Museum is an unforgettable adventure for the entire family. Guests can spend the day exploring more than 60 exhibits with a collection of 25 restored aircraft. The self-guided audio tour, narrated by Midway, sailors brings the carriers history to life. Those who dare can “take to the sky” aboard one of three flight simulators.

In 1992, the USS Midway is permanently decommissioned in San Diego, Calif.

The USS Midway Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1992. The Museum opened in June 2004. It is governed by a board of directors.

Vehicles over 18 feet long are not allowed to park on Navy Pier. The closest large-vehicle parking is in metered spaces along Pacific Coast Highway. Front-row handicapped parking spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Nearby Parking: Metered spaces are available on city streets ($1.25 per hour with a 2-hour limit). Downtown San Diego features more than 50,000 parking spaces. Some are within walking distance of the USS Midway Museum. Many are a short pedicab or taxi ride away.
