On a whim while in Evansville without much direction decided to check out the USS LST Ship Memorial. This is one of the best historical attractions we have visited with the tours being led by spirited veterans whom some actually served on LST ships or in the Navy during their era. Note the proceeds for the tours go back into... More

It was a fantastic and fascinating history lesson brought to life by the tour guides. Each guide has been a part of the restoration.

Great to see a working WWII ship. The tour last about an hour and it's an hour well spent. Very knowledgeable tour guide.

The USS LST is a great memorial to the veterans. As a veteran I am greatly appreciative of the ship. I have visited the ship several times. It is a great place to visit and since many of them were built in Evansville. If you are coming to Evansville it is a must see.

Great way for our kids to get some appreciation for the sacrifices made by those who serve. Both boys as well as Mom and Dad enjoyed. Tour guide was great. Well worth the modest admission fee.

I took the LST Tour with my adult family and we all found it well worth our while. Our guide, a Navy vet and very knowledgeable, coupled with the fantastic history made this tour great. I would recommend taking the tour when the temperatures are moderate, or at least not on an extremely hot day. Also wear comfortable shoes.

When we were in Evansville, my wife wanted to see this ship. Her dad served on an LST in World War II.. He had a lot of stories he used to tell and his favorite when wan they were in a typhoon. I'm sorry to say it made my wife a little sad since her dad died a few months... More

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.
