Exploring an aircraft carrier is nothing short of incredible. Specifically, standing on the flight deck of the Midway makes you realize what an impressive technological achievement it really is. Having explored both the USS Missouri Battleship and USS Bowfin Submarine at Pearl Harbor, both of which were also constructed during the same era, it's amazing to learn more about military history through maritime museums such as this.
The USS Midway Museum features an extensive collection of military aircraft spanning decades, numerous life-at-sea exhibits, as well as a variety of areas within the ship that visitors can explore. Still looking formidable along the waterfront in downtown San Diego, California, the USS Midway is a unique attraction and a rare opportunity to get an up close look at an aircraft carrier that was in use for the entirety of the Cold War.
