USS Midway Tour

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Our tour will begin with a brief bus tour of downtown San Diego. Once aboard the USS Midway, the curator will give us a short presentation on the ship’s library. After the presentation we can tour the library, which is not always open.  For the remainder of our visit we can enjoy an audio-guided tour.  We will have access to over 35 exhibits and displays, the mess deck, berthing spaces, hangar deck, flight deck and island.  Story-telling docents, many of whom served on the Midway, will regale us with stories of sacrifice and service to our country. The Midway is located less than half a mile from the Seaport Village shopping area.  Seaport Village has  over 50 shops and restaurants many of which are unique to San Diego. The bus will leave from the Marriott and from the Midway. Wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared for sun, wind, and climbing up and down steep, narrow stairways (ladders, in Navy parlance).  The Midway is not ADA compliant, but its exhibits are 60% wheelchair accessible.  The library is non-accessible, but the presentation will be.
