We just kept getting blown away by all of the information displayed, the history behind the pictures, and most of all being able to walk through the walls of the ship and really get a feel of the history within. Totally worth it!!

We loved our trip to the Lexington. I had gone many years ago when I was a kid, this time I had my fiance with me and wanted to take him along. It exceeded both of our expectations. I had no idea how long it would be but we were there for 3 hours and could have done a lot... More

I can't believe they fought a major war with this small ship. As a US Navy Veteran, I was very impress with the size and the use of the ship. The "self" tours were very educational. If you are a history buff, you could spend all day here. Ask questions, and learn.

Authentic representations and reverent acknowledgement of the service of this ship and its crews. The lecture area was perfect for my group's presentation ceremony.

It was a very large battleship to tour with a lot to see. The price was very fair and it included a free iMac movie :). There were fighter planes and jets on display all over along with photo ops and lots to learn about Pearl Harbor. We spent almost the whole day here. It was not nearly as hot... More

My husband and I took our toddler to the USS Lexington and we all had a good time. There was so much to see that we stayed there for a good 4 hours or so and the little one, usually with a very short attention span, was occupied the whole time. I really liked that the tours are in shorter... More

This is for history lovers. Lot of stair climbing. Take an a/c break in the theater there. Plan about 3 to 4 hours for a visit.
