Having the opportunity to go on the Lexington was an amazing learning experience. Came off the ship with a great admiration for the people who were stationed on the ship. Thanks for your service.

The museum on board the "Blue Ghost" is superb. You need to be in good physical shape to navigate the ship. Most of the museum is not accessible by wheelchair. This is a must for any Corpus Christi visitor.

Went with my children to visit the Lexington. There were alot of interactive exhibits and the volunteers were a treasure trove of information. I would reccomend paying the 3.50 for the lexingtons parking lot as the street parking can be a nightmare.

I've never done a guided tour on the USS Lexington. There are some great exhibits and plenty of signs to guide you through. Save time for the IMAX theatre as well.
