If you’re at all interested in the history of the United States military, you’re sure to enjoy a visit to the USS Midway Museum. This popular San Diego attraction offers an inside glimpse into the real lives and missions of U.S. soldiers from throughout history, from World War II onward.
There are real airplanes that were once used in WWII, Vietnam, and Desert Storm on display outside of the large museum, as well as attractions that simulate what it actually feels like to be aboard a military ship. Lifelike mannequins show what the soldiers’ clothing looked like aboard each ship or plane, while the exhibits outside even offer a scenic view of the San Diego skyline. If you want to delve deeper into your visit, the audio tour is free with the cost of admission, so you can learn even more about each exhibit by listening to a knowledgeable expert while you explore.
