USS Midway Museum
This museum is a naval aircraft carrier that features planes of all sizes. It is a large facility that is great for the entire family. You can tour the carrier to see how the sailors lived while they were on the sea. One thing that makes the tours personal are the volunteer veterans who tell their stories from when they were in the war. If you don't want to take the tour, you can walk through the museum on your own with a set of headphones that tells you about the exhibits.
