Lots of good history and information to learn about the Lexington. One of the top attractions/historic monuments to visit. My dad is a retired navy veteran so I loved visiting.

Spent 5 hours on the ship with a teenager. Both of us enjoyed the exhibits and the vast amount of history. Wish more of the ship was available to tour.

The staff was very organize. There was plenty of free time to explore the ship. Dinner was hamburgers with chips. Breakfast was eggs, sausage, cereal, and a biscuit. Sleeping quarters had a/c.

First class experience. Don't miss this, and while you're there try to reflect on all those who served on this ship and especially those from WWII that never returned!

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

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.
