Re: State aquarium and USS Lexington Corpus carry allowed?

I haven't been to the aquarium in a few years, but last I was there, it was not posted. It is not listed in Texas3006.com, and I would think that would be the kind of place someone would put a listing for if it were posted. That's not a difinitive answer, of course, but it's a good indication. IIRC the parking lot is close by the Aquarium, so you should have the opportunity to secure your pistol(s) in your vehicle fairly easily, should the need arise.

As stated earlier, you can carry in state parks in Texas, exempting COE land. Additionally, you can carry at Padre Island National Seashore under the relatively recent changes to the law regarding carry in national parks. The exception to this is the gift shop and office/exhibit area, as they fall under the exception of parts of buildings where federal employees work, and they are posted with gunbuster signs (binding in a national parks for those specific areas). The restroom/shower areas adjacent to the office and gift shop are OK for carry.

Re: State aquarium and USS Lexington Corpus carry allowed?

atxbandit wrote:I am heading to Corpus next month and was wondering if concealed carry is allowed? Has anyone been to either the aquarium or the Lexington recently? My gf wants to take her kids to both. Personally I would rather just go to the Lexington but as long as concealed carry is allowed I will visit both.
Thanks,

The aquarium was not posted when I went last year.

I have not been to the Lexington yet, so can't say whether or not it's posted. As far as I can tell, the ship is no longer federally-owned, but by the museum organization that maintains and operates it and not automatically off-limits to carry. There was a post regarding this last year, and folks reported that it is not posted. See the thread here:
