Enjoy a TOPGUN Experience in San Diego, California

While attending a Continuing Education Company's Primary Care Medical Education Seminar in San Diego, plan to visit the USS Midway and the San Diego Navy’s TOPGUN air combat school. If you are planning a trip to sunny San Diego, the USS Midway and the San Diego Air and Space museums are two must-sees. These two exquisite museums pair well together and worth every second spent at each location!!

San Diego is known for many things, and its Naval background is one. Both attractions provide a complete historical background and hands-on experience for visitors to visualize the changes in aircraft and airspace technology throughout the years, and how it changed our naval fleet. They offer a unique experience you will cherish forever.  Let’s take a brief view of each Museum and what makes them so special.

USS Midway Museum

The USS Midway Museum is located on the naval pier in San Diego. The main attraction is the USS Midway, which is the longest serving aircraft carrier, active from 1945 to 1992. This noble aircraft carrier was the only carrier to make it through the entire Cold War. With over 60 exhibits for all ages and over 29 restored aircrafts, the USS Midway Museum is an attraction you will want to visit again and again.

Take a walk through naval fleet history with a guided or self-guided audio tour and preview different versions of aircrafts. Make sure to visit the Hanger Deck, Flight Deck, and Below Deck exhibits to get a feel for what life on the USS was like for the 200,000 sailors that served on the carrier. Of course, there is more than educational exhibits for you to explore, fun-filled activities like flight simulators and Top Gun Movie night, and more are available during your visit. Don’t forget to check out their upcoming event calendar for special celebrations and register to become a member of their community.

San Diego Air and Space Museum

Located in Balboa Park, San Diego Air and Space Museum provides a remarkable visual of our aviation history and how that technology affects our present life and future. Their mission is to preserve and educate the significance of aviation advancement. You get a close look of rare and restored aircrafts used in some of the infamous wars that led to our country’s freedom. Visit their World War I and the World War II gallery to pay homage to those who served. The museum offers exciting events and exhibits to educate and inspire the minds of future aviators. For example, they house a program called Little Engineers, an engaging STEM program for preschoolers. Don’t worry parents, they also offer special membership events for adults too. Celebrate your next birthday or special event with them.

Each of the museums offers ongoing education. It is best to plan an itinerary for each location before you embark on your trip. From summer camps to field trips for kids, online activities and special events for adults, The USS Midway and SDASM will keep you engaged until your next visit.
