My son loves military history, so being able to get onto a war ship really made his day. It was super hot when we went but the guides didn't let that get in their way. Very proud of their ship and you can tell. Worth the money to take a tour

I took my father who traveled into battle on an LST similar. As we walked through the ship he had floods of Memories. It was an experience to see history alive and hear the stories from the period.

Many people in this region had mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, and other relatives who built these ships in Evansville. It will be moved later this year closer to the main Evansville river front. It is currently anchored at Marina Pointe near the Evansville riverfront. It is a fascinating tour and an amazing vessel.

We went not expecting a whole bunch, but our tour guide let us sit down on old AA guns, hold and put on old war helmets and much more! He was a fun and interactive guy and was in his 20's but really knew so much about the ship and the journey that it has had. He even took our... More

It is actually hard to put into words how we felt upon the visit to the memorial. Our generation has never experienced what this generation experienced...indeed they were "the greatest". It was beyond interesting and the two gentlemen who were our tour guides (one left for lunch due to the hours served and the other took over) were so knowledgeable.... More

We took our oldest grandson along with us through this ship tour. I wasn't sure how he would respond being a teen. He loved it! I think we loved it more because we had no idea what a ship like this involved. The tour guide did such a great job of explaining things and we didn't feel rushed. It was... More

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
