The visit with the Audio guide makes it very interesting because it is not only technical explanation of the plane; But it also narrates experiences lived in it.

We enjoyed this museum so much as a family. Very impressed with a smooth entry, kid friendly design/exhibits, and the amazing docents. There was so much to see that after going 2 half days, we still couldn't see it all. Kids ages 6 and 9 enjoyed it, especially sitting in the cockpits, doing the scavenger hunt, and getting their "wings". It was way more than we expected and so much fun! Highly recommend, we will be returning when we can!
Super cool experience! MUST see if you haven't participated in the military or would like to show the appreciation to the park. Very insightful as to how these men and women live and work a board this naval warship. It is truly awe inspiring and motivational to see such amazing equipment from many generations of airplanes and helicopters on the flight deck up close and personal. This was the most amazing thing I did while in San Diego and the staff all very knowledgeable and helpful was a true delight to meet the men and women that served on this icon. Truly amazing I can NOT say this enough A++++++++ for $23.00 a true deal to spend a afternoon.
