    The Carrier was called Lexington in remembrance of the Minutmen of Lexington who decided, during the American Revolution, to be ready without any delay to fight for the freedom.
    The "Blue Ghost" (her nickname) have been involved in WWII and was on duty until 1962. Then she was bought by the City of Corpus Christi to be in exibit in the bay.
    First of all, we were transported to the deck by a small tram driven by a veteran.
    Then we visited the hangar which was just under the flight deck.
    The most amazing was the flight deck which was large as several football fields.
    We passe by the multiple internal rooms and corridors : briefing rooms, dorms, infirmary, barber shops, kitchen, engines, captain's cabin, etc... with the comments of volunteers of the navy (retired). Of course, we lost in the visit...
    Unfortunately, we had not time enough to see the films on wide screens.

    Open : 9AM to 5PM (6PM on Summer)
    Price : 11$95
