Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was obvious he had a true passion for this ship. We really enjoyed our tour and the entire experience was fantastic. This ship is a true treasure for Evansville and a must visit for any family.

fantastic experience...makes you appreciate what the men and women of WWII did for our freedom. Great for families and even just a great place to wander around by yourself.

Andrew was a great tour guide with a great voice with volume and enthusiasm. As a southern Indiana native now living in the south, I was so proud of the cornfield factory that produced this WWII powerhouse. May it be docked in Evansville forever

The outstanding tour of this LST gives new, human dimension to a war we can no longer imagine. But it is also a link to the Evansville Shipyard, which poured these specialized crafts into the war effort. Finally, the story of this particular ship and its journey to Evansville is a fascinating footnote to history. I highly recommend this.

We have not gotten to tour the LST, but the recent reenactment was fantastic. Really looking forward to touring the boat.

We thoroughly the tour and history of this salvaged WWII ship. It is well worth the time. And, you will be moved to learn the history of the ship known to it's sailors as the "one trip" vessel. Prices are family friendly. Great photo opportunities. And, the LST volunteers are very happy to share their vessel with your family.

My son and husband went to the USS LST tour and absolutely LOVED it. They learned so much, even after reading about it online. They came back from the tour super excited to fill me in on everything and show me the pictures. We went back the next day to buy a t-shirt so my husband can proudly display his... More
