Visit the USS Midway

The USS Midway offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore a historic aircraft carrier. During the 20th century, the USS Midway was the longest-serving aircraft carrier, named after the Battle of Midway in June 1942. Midway was built in 17 months and commissioned on September 10th, 1945, missing World War II by only one week. It was one of the first carriers that featured an armored flight deck with a powerful group of 120 planes.

Taking a tour of the USS Midway is fun for people of all ages! It includes self-guided audio tours, flight simulators, theater, guided tours of the bridge, climb-in aircraft, and more. When you stand on the flight deck, you get spectacular views of San Diego's downtown skyline, the Coronado Bay Bridge, and active U.S. Navy ships.  

When staying at the Comfort Inn Gaslamp Convention Center hotel, you're staying in the heart of downtown San Diego, surrounded by seemingly endless entertainment options. The USS Midway will give you an inside look at over 60 locations in the ship, from the sailors sleeping quarters to the engine room and more, narrated by Midway sailors who worked or lived on the ship.
