USS Midway Museum

deafREVIEWer

Having seen this battleship driving by and then getting up close while on a dinner cruise, I had to go visit. I was surprised when they said they had interpreted audio tours, which is actually done via a hand-held screen. The audio portions are pre-recorded for the hearing people, and for the deaf, we see a great guy who signs very clearly what is being said. Even though not every stop had an interpreted version, this was by far a great option and I didn't stop and watch every one of them as I'd rather take in the sights with my own eyes. They had signs with descriptions that are easy to read and understand when learning about each spot as well.

Quite a tour that left me awe-struck!

My family and I are really enjoyed this museum. The museum is really United States aircraft carrier. It is really HUGE than you can imagine when you watch the battleships on the television. At first, I was concerned about the stroller for my 2 years old child. I entered this place after ticket booth and relieved when it has an elevator for strollers, handicapped individual or wheelchairs. The staffs are very friendly when they learned my wife and I are deaf. They used their body gesture to communicate with us. This ship has a restaurant, Fantail Cafe so we had to order some for our lunch. The guy who worked there know some sign language. I think his name is Daniel or Danny. This carrier are very accessible for anyone.
