    Although it is a national treasure and a fun museum, an aircraft carrier is not the best for strollers so plan accordingly. Be sure to check out the 3D MEGA Theater; it's free with your admission!

    If you are a history nerd, you should definitely go check out the USS Lexington. It is a tight squeeze in parts, but worth it. You can even go on the top deck. Watch out for ghosts though ;)

    Go early before crowds pour in midday and you'll have better freedom to explore the huge ship. The IMAX that is included in ticket is a must. Take your pics of Texas State Aquarium from flight deck.

    Wear pants and good walking/stair climbing shoes. If you can check out the entire ship, it's worth it! Don't forget the flight simulator!

    Lots of things to see here. My six year old enjoyed climbing through the ship. I wish I could do the live aboard experience. Highly recommended.

    The USS Lexington, an Essex-class aircraft carrier, was the oldest working carrier in the U.S. Navy before it was decommissioned in 1991. Watch this video for more info. Read more

    Was fun! Went with kids that didn't care about the history. Steps are a bit steep and was sore the next day but was fun!

    Maybe don't wear a dress or a skirt due to the wind and the stairs. Or just wear your best skivvies.

    If you have young children bring a sling or other carrier. Lots of steep stairs!
