Facility:USS Lexington - Museum on the Bay
Description:Come aboard "The Blue Ghost", a true living legend, for the most educational, exciting and entertaining time you'll ever have. Commissioned in 1943, LEXINGTON served longer and set more records than any carrier in U.S. Naval history. Decommissioned in 1991, the 910-foot, 16-deck, 33,000-ton aircraft carrier now serves as an important historical repository and museum. Because of the historical significance of the USS LEXINGTON, the ship is maintained as a tribute to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and as a memorial to the people who died serving the US, in the defense of freedom, especially in World War II. Displays, ceremonies, and other programs emphasize the heroism and sacrifice of those who have served the nation in the Navy and the Marine Corps. Historical reenactments vividly portray the service of the people who fought in World War II.

This is a fantastic field trip opportunity. Wonderful history. There are several airplanes on the deck. You can walk through several areas of the ship on many different levels. There is a lot of walking, it can be a bit cramped and is not a good for strollers. It can also be very hot during the summer.
