Advice for Visitors

Tips:

  • With so much to see and do, plan on at least three or four hours onboard to get the most out of your visit.
  • Exploring the USS Midway can involve a lot of walking and navigating ladders. Closed-toed shoes and layered clothing are recommended as temperatures vary around the ship. Heels and skirts are not recommended.
  • Kids love the museum's Junior Pilot Program! Follow Airman Sam Rodriguez as he takes you and the youngsters on an amazing and entertaining audio tour to more than 30 locations throughout the aircraft carrier. Once the kids complete Sam’s tasks, they will be treated to a ceremony performed by one of Midway’s volunteer Docents, where they will earn their Junior Pilot Wings!
  • All visitors are subject to a bag check before coming aboard the Midway. Prohibited items include but are not limited to: outside food/beverage, glass containers of any kind, pets, bicycles, skateboard/scooters, weapons of any kind.
