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.

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.
