USS Midway Museum

Yes, it’s a ship and a museum. The USS Midway Museum in San Diego’s harbor is a must-see. The aircraft carrier, USS Midway has a rich history. According to Wikipedia, it’s “America’s longest-serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century, from 1945 to 1992.”

Even if you are not a history or aircraft buff, it’s pretty amazing to tour the inside of the carrier and imagine being a sailor during the Cold War. Or a sailor serving our country today, as so many are.

The museum also houses over two dozen restored aircraft that you can see up close.

These photos were taken awhile back. The weather has been so unusually hot and humid that being outdoors is too uncomfortable. So I’ve been organizing my photos and came across these.
