访问中途岛号航空母舰的提示

  • Arrive early and head directly to the tour of the bridge and flight control. The lines can form quickly and the wait can get somewhat lengthy.
  • Talk to the docents! They are well educated and experienced about life in the military, especially aboard a naval ship. The volunteers include veterans of World War II who want to share their first-hand knowledge of many critical events in history.
  • Be prepared to do some walking and stair climbing. The ship is over 1,000 feet long and 258 feet in width. To reach the bridge, you must climb up at least four steep staircases. That means wear comfortable athletic shoes and avoid clothing that’s too loose.
  • Paid parking is available at the museum and nearby. To save money on parking, you can park outside of downtown and take the trolley to the harbor.
  • Have your camera or phone fully charged. The museum has many stunning and fun photo opportunities as well as exquisite views of downtown, the San Diego bay and Coronado Island.
  • Pack some snacks and enjoy the seating on the flight deck while watching the sailboats on the bay. Many times visitors can see dolphins and seals in the bay as they relax to take in the view.
  • 某些活动有单独的费用,如果您想尝试飞行模拟器等活动,请带些额外费用。
