This historic vessel is worth seeing. It lets you walk back in time to where our sailors and soldiers were during WW2. The walking tour is great, I did some research before we went and it was pretty interesting. The best thing was my father in-law was aboard one of these during pre-Vietnam War and would haul stuff up the... More

Took my kids as week as my 2 nieces (5 total ages 8-13)to check it out on a hot day in July. The kids and I were mesmerized by the tales of our guide as well as getting to see all the nooks and crannies on the ship. We have recommended it since then to other families. What I though... More

My grandfather worked on this ship, in the Evansville Shipyards, during the war and was very proud of his job.

This a last of its kind ship. The tour is guided. It takes about an hour. Be prepared if it is a hot day, most of the ship does not have air conditioning. Well worth the few bucks for admission.

The tours begin in the gift shop, on the hour. The tours are given by volunteers. Most are prior military and they are very knowledgeable. The tour, takes... More

The LST tour was a little over an hour long and was interesting throughout. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. It was clear he has a passion for these ships. For $20 the experience was one of our favorites during our Evansville stay.

Just like coming home. I served on the USS Summit County LST1146 IN THE MID 60'S. The LST325 association has done a remarkable job of restoring the ship and to think they sailed it from Greece to Mobile, Alabama is remarkable in itself. I would hope that anyone who has served in the "Gator Navy" will come and visit. BRAVO... More

The LST is a great experience for everyone!! It really reminded me of how great our country is and when you are walking around and you imagine it in battle, it is really breathtaking! The only thing to watch out for, however, are the big steps in which I tripped several times on!! All in all... This attraction is..... GREAT!!
