There is so much to see and do on this ship. Be prepared for cramped areas, but most of the informative sections are in larger areas. We enjoyed looking at the various planes up on the flight deck and seeing the 3D movie. There were...More

Self guided tour is the way to go. Allow yourself 3-4 hours to tour the whole thing. Spent all morning there touring the whole thing and the kids loved it.

If you haven't noticed, most aircraft carriers are rather large. The USS Lexington might be old and "small" for an aircraft carrier, but it IS an aircraft carrier. Therefore, just walking the ship will take a long time. Likewise, remember that the Lexington is more...More

You can spend a few hours with the family here without breaking the bank, Some great history here. The neatest thing about this, the kids get to touch things, this keeps them entertained throughout the whole tour.

A visit to the USS Lexington aircraft carrier is a must and for a few dollars you can spend hours in not the whole day there. It's like visiting a little city, there are lots of interactive displays throughout the vessel and a couple of...More

Had a phenomenal time on this ship. Initially thought it was just going to be an open hangar area to walk around and read, but was I mistaken. You are able to really explore the entire ship into the quarters of the soldiers and captains,...More

Access to main flight deck and elevator to lower area however many inner areas will be limited due to steep narrow stairs which the sailors used to move about the ship - I don’t recall wheelchair rentals - hope that helps
