Visit the American aircraft carrier holding the record for the longest time in service in the 20th century!

Climb aboard the USS Midway and walk in the footsteps of 225,000 sailors who have served the United States of America. You will discover life at sea without leaving the port and learn about 50 years of history thanks to the audio-guided tour commentated by sailors who worked on the vessel. Another popular feature to the visit is meeting the volunteer guides, who will share with you various anecdotes about the aircraft carrier.

The vessel also features over 60 exhibitions and collection of 29 restored aircraft. Take advantage of the visit to climb aboard some of the planes and test 2 flight simulators. You will also have access to the crew cabin, the engine room, the Wardroom, the ship prison and the post office!
