2006 Museums: USS Midway

After she got decommissioned, the WWII Era USS Midway aircraft carrier was transformed into a floating museum and she is now anchored in the San Diego Harbor.

Even after all this time, she is still quite a sight !  Here are a few pictures I took during my visit:                    The museum's web site
