Utility information for those who may have special needs: This place has bathroom. Unlike some big ship. Yay. I am looking at you, IOWA. Not wheel chair accessible except for some part of the deck. Stairs are steep in most cases (also narrow). First thing first, this is a place for those who really like navy/ww2 stuff, therefore if you... More

The directions to the ship are easy to follow and visit did not disappoint. Constructed in WWII, this ship languished for many years in Suisan Bay before being selected for conversion to a museum - and what a great job has been done by the volunteers who spent their own time bringing it back to life. All areas are usually... More

We checked out this ship while we stayed at the Queen Mary a couple weeks ago in May 2015 and upon entering, a very nice elderly man got us prepared with our $5 tickets. I don't believe there was a map. If there was a self guided tour, we never got the info. So off we go exploring the ship... More

While not well known, the ship is amazing. You can wander to your hearts content and learn a lot about the merchant marine ships. In addition there are volunteers that will give you some insight - just ask! The ship is away from the beaten path and a bit out of the way but after an hour on it you... More

Excellent ship to visit. Learn the rich history of the Merchant Marine and the role they played, especially in WWII. Many do not know that the Merchant Marine actually had more ships sunk than the Navy during WWII with few to no survivors. We did not realize that until we took this very informative tour. Plan a day and go... More

The Lane Victory is the last working "Victory" ship that was utilized in World War II. It was a supply ship that ferried supplies to allies and US servicemen across the water. The difference between the Lane Victory and the Iowa is that you can tour almost the whole ship on Lane Victory whereas the Iowa is limited. It's great... More

After visiting the battleship Iowa some months ago I was anxious to see the nearby SS Lane Victory sitting all alone at the very end of the San Pablo gentrified waterfront. Parking is extensive and free. Access to the Lane Victory is nominal, so both free parking and inexpensive ship access was a refreshing change from the rather expensive Iowa... More

This is an AP2 class naval auxiliary. Commissioned near the end of WW11 and serving in Korea and Vietnam she is a great example of this duties this type of ship carried out. She is dedicated to the service of the Merchant Marine during WW11. Now operated by volunteers you do a self guided tour that is divided into three... More

We had attended the Tall Ships Festival, which happened to provide us access to both the USS Iowa and the SS Lane Victory. The Lave Victory was by far the better tour. Access to a huge portion of the ship was available including climbing down into the operational boiler room. The volunteer staff were very friendly and well informed on... More
