Wonderful monument of recent history. Plan for 4 hours. The audio tour is excellent . If you are in the area, you really should not miss this.

We took our daughter, husband and two grandsons, 11 & 15, there last week. This was our 2nd time touring this decommissioned aircraft carrier. We knew the boys would love it too. They overwhelmingly loved it! The tour guides are retired military, mostly Navy and Marines, many actually served on the Midway. They were so informative not only about the Midway but other naval ships. Get in line early the the helm tour, it's worth it. Plan to spend several hours there. They have a nice coffee shop and great little cafe on the back of the ship. If you buy your tickets on line ahead of time you go little discount and you don't have to wait in line to purchase tickets. Just google USS Midway. There is a huge military discount and a Sr Discount, it was not about $60 for all of us, 1 Sr, 2 retired military. It is pretty inexpensive.
Great way to see a legend and learn about WWII, The carrier has more to see than you can in an hour so plan to be there as long as you can to get the full benefit of the experience.
I only wish we had more time to tour this magnificent war ship. You need to allow at least three hours if not more to take in the full tour and experience everything.
