Corpus Christi


Texas

USS Lexington

..is docked at Corpus Christi Beach just over the Harbor Bridge. Walk her deck and corridors and discover the significant role this ' Blue Ghost' and her Sailors played in our nation's defense for nearly 50 years.
Her World War II record is second to none, and she remains a memorial to the Americans who served her, those who served her country, and all who died defending freedom.
She continues to serve today as a museum and educational facility.

More than three fields long, the museum has air conditioned tour routes of exhibits and restored vintage aircraft.
Tours include the hanger deck, Foc'sle, commanding officer/admiral quarters, sick bay gallery, flight deck, and bridge. Exhibits include the "Above and Beyond," an overview of the last ditch Kamikaze campaign waged by the Japanese, and a high-tech flight simulator for those who want to capture the sensation of flight. Experience the new Joe Jessel Mega Theater and take an amazing journey in sight and sound. Immerse yourself in three-stories-tall giant screen images and thundering digital sound. It is the first and only theater capable of showing movies filmed IMAX and other large screen format installed on a historic naval ship.
