Activity Overview

The USS Midway Museum is a popular maritime museum located at Navy Pier in downtown San Diego. The museum is located aboard the USS Midway, the longest-serving U.S. aircraft carrier of the 20th century, which reminds visitors of a floating city due to its immense size. It features over 60 exhibits, a fascinating collection of military aircraft, and exciting flight simulators that are sure to provide any family with a fun-filled day.
