Everything I love every single part of my tour. I'm a executive chef so I also loved seeing the galley, kitchen and menus.

Even if your not into the military, this is fascinating
This is a fascinating tour. Great self guided audio tour that is easy to operate. Veterans give short insightful talks with videos. There are interactive experiences such as a VI ride in a fighter plane and a flight simulator. This carrier performs all the things a commercial airport does in 1/100 of the space! Plan to spend at least three hours there. I didn’t think I’d be engaged but I was thoroughly involved. Worth the cost of admission!

History at it's finest
I had an amazing time exploring the USS Midway Museum! It was fascinating to learn about the different parts of the ship and how Navy crews worked and lived on board. The engine room and flight deck were particularly impressive and spoke volumes about the hard work and dedication of the sailors who served on the ship. Overall, it was a great experience and I highly recommend visiting the museum to anyone interested in history or naval technology.

It was a highly educational tour incorporating history and fun. The volunteers are amazing to visit with. It was my first time on an air craft carrier and it helped me experience a small portion of what my Dad’s time in the US Navy was like. I recommend!
