Feel the need for speed? Hold on tight as your adrenaline skyrockets aboard the USS Midway Museum where visitors get a real life look at life aboard one of the longest-serving Navy aircraft carrier in the United States. See how sailors and fighter pilots lived aboard this floating city, from the galleys to the onboard jail, to the post office to flight deck.
In addition to the self-guided tour, the museum also features two different flight simulators where brave "soldiers" can experience rolls, somersaults, spins and loops, or "fly" a mission in Operation Desert Storm.
October is the perfect month to descend on this wonder as the museum also hosts a haunted, unforgettable Halloween event (see below), and regular admission for kids is free during the entire month! Here are the details for the Halloween event:
