CORPUS CHRISTI – The USS Lexington Museum is thrilled to announce that we will reopen to our guests on Friday, May 22, 2020, as part of Phase 2 of the TX Governor’s “Report to Open Texas.”

Hours of operation are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily.

Guests will be welcomed aboard by a local marching band and Lieutenant LEX as we kick off Memorial Day Weekend!

The safety of our guests, staff, and volunteers remains, as always, our highest priority. The USS Lexington Museum has instituted safety protocols that are in line with local and state executive orders and guidelines. If you’re feeling ill, or have other health concerns, we look forward to welcoming you on board when you’re feeling better. All surfaces, railings, etc., on board the ship are being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis. We request family groups maintain social distancing from others, and for all guests to make use of the many hand washing/sanitizer stations throughout the ship. Staff and volunteers will be wearing masks. Guests are encouraged, but not required, to also wear a mask or other face covering.

We’re excited to share this historic ship with our guests once again! We look forward to having you on board for a safe and enjoyable experience.
