This was one thing we wanted to see as we passed through Evansville. Such a great exhibit. We were the only two people on the tour , had a retired Navy man who had crewed on the boat when they take it to different cities, a wealth of information. Please take your children/grandchildren to see this floating exhibit. It is... More

If you have the smallest interst or just what to learn a little about WWII please go here. The cost was $10 for an adult and it's well worth it. We had a guided tour of the ship by a gentleman who knew his stuff and also currently still goes out on the ship from time to time. It's really... More

This is a an actual vintage WWII landing ship tank being lovingly maintained by dedicated volunteers! It is stocked with a lot of authentic memorabilia including a Higgins boat, big deck mounted guns and actual spots where shells have pierced the ship. We enjoyed the information provided by the well informed tour guide. The tour allows for an exploration of... More

This museum ship is important history for all to see. It closed at 4:00, so we came back the next morning and it was well worth it. The tour is given by retired sailors, so there are personal stories that make history come alive.

This was a great historical trip. The tour guide is very casual, but knowledgeable. Apparently the last LST in existence, it is still fully functional and takes treks down the river to other ports.

If you have any interest in World War 2 you should see the LST memorial. It has been restored, well as much as they were able and according to our guide was brought over from oversea by members of the original crew. The guide was very knowledgeable about the LST and the Higgins boat that is also there. I highly... More

The USS LST 325 currently is in port in Chattanooga, TN downtown First and foremost, arrive early. The lines are long and standing is inevitable. It probably is not good for those with physical disabilities due to the single line ingress and egress. There are steep steps along the tour throughout the ship. For the history buffs this will be...

The ship has sailed as it does during 6 weeks of the year usually September -August . However the Tiki Bar offered a cold drink and a great chicken sandwich as consolation.
