The ship while tucked away from downtown Evansville and located in marina point is still a sight to see. This is the only LST ship that still sails and does a voyage once a year to places such as Cincy, Louisville, Pittsburgh. I took my dad to it when he visited and he enjoyed his trip as well I did...

You may never have another opportunity to see one of these! Of all of the WWII vessels that have been preserved for display, to my knowledge no other LST has been, and this one is fully operational! A naval memorial on a river? In the mid-west? It often shocks people to learn, that LSTs were actually built in shipyards located... More

This was a great WWII naval ship tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and it was so neat to see a working ship. While it is retired, they do have staff that upkeep it and it does sail tours every year. I highly recommend this and it is worth the money.

We toured the USS LST Ship Memorial today and we were so moved. The "treasure" was not only in the ship itself and the stories we heard..but the tour guides themselves. There were only two of us and another gentleman joined our tour. We felt like it was a personal tour. We started off with one of the gentlemen who... More

If you're traveling thru southern Indiana (like on you're way to Vincennes to see the George Rogers Clark Memorial and the Red Skelton museum) you must stop and see this. Fantastic story about these ships and their impact on WWII. Hourly guided tours by vets who serviced. A working ship brought back from Greece that travels the mid-west. We plan... More

My daughter wanted to take her dad to the LST for Fathers Day her boyfriend joined us. We were really impressed with the tour and tour guide. What an awesome piece of history right in our backyard. Everyone should check it out at least once.

We have lived in the Evansviile area for a long time but have never been to the LST. I wish we had gone sooner. There is a tour that leaves at least every hour but if they have more volunteers they have them sooner. Our tour lasted about an hour and was lead by a very well informed volunteer that... More
