    My husband and I visited the USS Lexington while we were vacationing in Corpus Christi. My husband is a disabled vet that requires the assistance of a service dog. He was looking forward to touring a ship since his dad was in the Navy and he had never seen one. When we finally got there we were surprised that the ship was hardly handicap accessible. No where on their website do they warn you of this. There are only 2-3 exhibits that you can see if you are disabled. I felt really bad for my husband because he could not see a majority of the museum and that we could not enjoy it together after driving all the way down from San Antonio to see it. The manager was nice enough and refunded my husbands portion of the entry fee.

    In case the manager care about the business. Miss Maggie Robles & Amanda Pena were rude and unfriendly. I don’t understand how you can put miserable faces in front to serve as the face of an amazing heritage. What a waist! A colleague of theirs confirmed to us that is how they have been behaving.The boat was amazing but what a shame I had such a bad experience with these two. We will not bring business to this place anymore as we planned to come back in summer with friends.

    This ship is HISTORY! I had wanted to take this tour for years and every time I went to Corpus Christi with friends, they never wanted to go see the ship and said “Oh it’s too hot. It’s boring. It’s not fun.” Boy were they wrong! I went by myself and only wish I had even more time to spend reading all of the great details about every part of this ship. It was very hands on as well. I was able to sit in the seats of giant guns and rotate the turrets and imagine I was blasted back in time fighting the good fight. And it’s not just about the ship. Also on board is a vast collection of fighter planes. I was amazed and awed throughout the tour. Expect to spend at least 2-3 hours on the ship climbing stairs from the belly of the boat to the deck and to the tower. This is a great way to learn about the history and sacrifices and hardships our soldiers go through to secure our freedom.

    Disappointing is all I have to say. To say the least, there is no handicap accessibility on the ship. I took my fiancee, her mother and her grandfather who is a WWII vet and can not easily walk, let alone climb up and down stairs. The ticket was free for him but he was limited to one deck out of the entire ship. The staff advised that there is no elevator at the moment but there will be one installed in the fall… I drove two hours specifically to take our grandfather aboard only to find this all out. Very disappointing.

    Pretty interesting experience; I work with a friend who was stationed on the Lexington during the Vietnam Conflict when it was in service as a training carrier. He said it took a bit of getting used to because his bunk was just below the flight deck. This ship is a pretty awesome piece of history and being able to examine it enhanced my appreciation for the United States Military and the Navy.
