About USS Midway Museum

As a landmark attraction at Navy Pier in San Diego, USS Midway Museum consists of the first Midway class aircraft carrier of the US Navy. In front of the museum stands a colossal sculpture called "Victory Kiss", a much photographed spot and a must see for tourists. You may ascend to the island superstructure located at the flight deck of the carrier, take a look inside the pilothouse and control room, or participate in an engrossing guided tour given by ship veterans. Pay a visit to the carrier's living quarters and get to know the living conditions of navy officers aboard the ship. On the top of the ship are landed fighter jets and helicopters of various sizes. Visitors may also board a trainer jet to experience what it feels like to maneuver a warplane.

    The Midway Islands Aircraft Carrier Museum is a landmark of San Diego and an extremely important symbol of the U.S. Navy. The whole museum is quite large. It takes three to four hours to really have a good tour. For parking, we parked directly in the parking lot next to the carrier, USD10 within 12 hours. After getting off the bus, I went to the queue and found that if I had bought the tickets well in advance, I would not have to queue for more people who needed to buy the tickets. So we quickly use mobile phones to buy good tickets on the Internet. When checking tickets, we use mobile phones to scan the code and pass smoothly, which saves a lot of queuing time. You can get a free voice guide and choose Chinese.

    Only by personal close contact with aircraft carriers can we know the enormity and power of aircraft carriers! Only by touching the rusty hulls of aircraft carriers and fighters can we feel the horror of war! The aircraft carrier Midway Island is very well preserved. There are veterans volunteering to tell tourists what happened that year. In the naval vessel's atrium, you can get a free interpreter in Chinese. It's recommended that you take a day to slowly visit the full to learn about that period of history.

    San Diego recommends going to scenic spots - you can visit the inside and outside of the whole aircraft carrier, and the Chinese reader is absolutely worth more! It's better to buy e-tickets online in advance and show the electronic two-dimensional code on the mobile phone. It's expensive to buy tickets on the spot and it's only 10 days before tickets begin to sell! _______ There are also famous statues of the Kiss of Victory and ports to visit! It is suggested that if there is no special arrangement, you can park your car in the park next to the Kiss of Victory earlier ~because the free parking before 10 o'clock is $2.5 per hour and the time to add or subtract credit card is OK ~Grey is very convenient!

    Carrier is one of the few scenic spots that must be visited to San Diego, especially the Chinese people with national defense plots. It is envious to see that other people built such a complex big fellow decades ago. Parking: We rented a car and drove by ourselves. We could drive directly to the parking lot beside the carrier. We could stop at any price of $10. There was a charge for the card at the entrance. Otherwise, the parking lot with a Navy kiss on the right side of the front 100 meters is also a meter, which can be coined or swiped. Payments are paid by the hour first and then countdown, as if it were two knives per hour. Tickets: 20 dollars a person, absolute value, really inexpensive, especially compared to domestic tourist attractions: after entering the spiral ladder, there will be a photo link, will give you a number, the last time you leave, you can go to the service desk to collect photos, 10 dollars a piece, for those who like to commemorate this visit can buy, otherwise it is not meaningful, a picture 10 dollars is too expensive. You can pick up the voice commentator at the service desk first, and play it in Chinese. When you look at the number at any place, you can enter the number and the commentator will play automatically. Sightseeing suggestions: Follow the guide board, the internal hangar, and then the sailor dormitory... One cabin after another can be visited for a long time, restaurants, medical rooms, laundries and so on. It is really admirable for such a complex design. It is really the embodiment of superpower national strength. Then get on the plane splint, some of the older planes take photos, many of them can sit directly in close range to see; finally go on the command tower, limit the number of people to enter in batches, there are old retired Navy to explain, see there is nothing very special inside. Finally, you can see the surrounding seascapes on the aircraft carrier splint, the Colorado Bridge, two other aircraft carriers on the other side, and the famous sculpture of the sailor's kiss on the left. The blue sky and white clouds are beautiful. Just as we met the Chinese Navy medical ship, we stopped at a berth of more than 100 meters. It was very exciting to see our country's big ship and go to find our own navy photo.

    Midway Island is also a landmark of San Diego. Originally, I wanted to go directly to the Grand Canyon. Later, I read the introduction and went around San Diego. Its resume is not much to say, the first surprise to enter the carrier is that he maintains very well, although it is not as large as the Nimitz tonnage, but the scene looks very shocking, the ship displays most of the U.S. war II fighter aircraft. Not far from the door, there is a service desk which provides a free lecture machine. There are even Chinese ones. With them, we begin to explain the weapons and airplanes on display at the corresponding number. The background is also very detailed, so we must have another one.

    The Carrier Museum is worth visiting. Although it is a retired carrier, it is all the template of that year. Except for the engine and the main air control, it is the same as when it was in service. Museum guidance is doing very well, leading a Chinese interpreter, along the way, input the corresponding number can listen to the explanation. There are also Chinese maps to assist, will not feel confused at all. The whole carrier is divided into three layers. Buy tickets and enter from the middle layer. There are two VR experience games parked in the old aircraft. You can experience them at your own expense. Upstairs deck area is completely restored to the combat configuration, aircraft and helicopters are more advanced, visiting the Naval Academy graduation ceremony on this day, the scene to see the students thank their families for the teacher is still a little touched. At the same time, there are the captain's room and battle command room on the top floor. The aircraft carrier in 1945 was very advanced at that time. At the bottom are soldiers'leisure meals and medical rooms. It feels like the whole trip is still a long journey and worth visiting.

    Team Tour Card, but it is really worth a visit, after all, there is no such close contact with aircraft carriers in China. Although it is a search and retirement, but the high-tech above is very interesting, not by admiring the old Americans in the 1950s can do so fiercely. Besides the engine rent, all the original parts are 100 [%] to restore the situation at that time. The whole aircraft carrier is divided into three layers, starting from the middle layer, take the Chinese explanatory device first. At that time, as long as the number of each small scene is input, Chinese explanatory is very convenient. The middle and deck layers are mainly to see all kinds of World War II aircraft. At the same time, the deck can also enter the battle command room and the captain's lounge. At the bottom are soldiers'rest and medical-related configurations. The whole aircraft carrier is going out to be a small city, everything. The most impressive thing is the battle command room. Although they are all models, they still admire the advanced way that Americans were 60 years ago.

    The USS Midway Island was built in 1943, launched in 1945 and retired in 1997. It is the first USS Midway Island carrier. It is also said to have served for the longest time. It has participated in many major military activities such as the Vietnam War Desert Storm. Now moored at the Navy Trestle in San Diego, as a museum, is a good opportunity to learn about the military and military history of the United States, such a huge thing, let people exclaim their own insignificance, but it is both man-made things, and people will feel great! ________

    San Diego Midway, big ship, steel city floating on the sea. The space shuttle Endeavour, which was seen in Los Angeles the other day, represents the technological and industrial level of the US Empire. The first close contact aircraft carrier, the first launching aircraft carrier Midway Island after World War II, has now been converted into a carrier museum, but three lifting platforms for warplanes are said to be still available, as well as the existing Carl Vinson and Roosevelt in the military harbor. It is not clear how far to shoot, but it is like seeing three huge objects at the same time. To Mark No. 33, Krell MRA and Mcintosh MC2KW

    Midway Island Aircraft Carrier Museum, one of the symbols of San Diego, and more importantly, it should be the best Aircraft Carrier Museum in the world. Almost every part of the cabin can be visited. The route design is very reasonable. There are voice guides all the way. What's more, there are Chinese explanations. Don't worry about your English. Don't be at home. Let's play together after visiting the carrier and then taking a picture before you go to the famous Victory Kiss statue. This will be a perfect half-day in San Diego.~
