As I have a degree in history, landmarks such as this are automatically interesting for me. However, visiting the LST helped me learn much more about WWII and how the troops moved about. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would recommend this to anyone who has any interest in historical items.

Touring the USS LST 325 brings home the sacrifice and commitment made by the men and women of the military, and especially of those who fought in WWII. The tours start every hour at the top of the hour, but be sure to get there a little early and watch the video telling the story of how the ship was... More

Totally great! The Vets are refurbishing this last LST purchased from Greece or Turkey. Made in Evansville ( I think) these crafts helped win the war. Go in cooler season. Believe me.

This is actually from my experience from early 2011... The tour guide was really knowledgeable. He spent a lot of time answering my questions and a lot of time making sure my kids were not losing interest. It's cool learning about the battles this ship was in. Also, don't forget to ask about the table in the current breakroom. The... More

The LST is an amazing ship that I'll bet most people didn't know existed! The tour is wonderful and it's fun seeing so many parts of the ship. Turns out my husband's step-father was evacuated during WWII on this VERY vessel which made it fun for us!

Location is a bit awkward to reach as it is not on a main road not hard to get to and parking is plentiful and just steps from the ships store and covered gangway to the ship. Hopefully they will be able to relocate to the riverfront downtown Evansville, making access much better. My guide was very knowledgeable and answered... More

Everyone should take the opportunity to visit the LST in Evansville. Well maintained with knowledgeable guides, everyone in your party will get something out of this tour. If you have past military in your party, all the better. Chances are, your guides will be past military, too.

It was Memorial Day weekend and we thought this would be a great place to visit. Our guide was really knowledgeable and you could tell he loved giving tours and sharing information with us. Since it was the holiday, we got a 30 minute FREE tour but we would have gladly paid the admission fee for a longer tour. It... More

The "crew" of this active ship is very helpful and informative. The tour guide we had had actually been active duty on an LST, so he is at home aboard a ship like this. (He also can operate out of the ship's radio station, which houses a ham shack as well, for amateur radio operators running HF. WW2LST.) I had... More
