The San Diego Aircraft Carrier Museum

910 N. Harbor Dr.
San Diego, CA, 92101, United States
TEL: (619) 544-9600

Located in downtown San Diego right on the water in the city’s scenic bay, the USS Midway is the first aircraft carrier to be built after World War II and is now a museum dedicated to this massive ship and other military aircraft. The San Diego Aircraft Carrier Museum is a collection of 60 exhibits and 27 restored aircraft, and almost the entire ship is available to tour such as sleeping bunks, officer’s quarters, kitchens, chapel, radio rooms, engine rooms and bridge. The flight deck is filled with WWII-to-Operation Desert Storm naval planes. 

Insider Tip:

For those who wear heels, are claustrophobic or disabled, the USS Midway Museum is a challenging tour full of small spaces, steep steps and slippery ladders.
