The volunteers really enhance the experience. They were very knowledgeable about the ship and WWII in general. The fact that LST ships were built in Evansville makes it even more interesting. I knew about LSTs and their role in the war but I was surprised at how large the ship was when we toured it.

Very historic. Learned a lot about the manufacturing of the vessel and it's importance in the war. I was amazed how big the ship is and it's valuable assistance in the war efforts. It was a great lesson in history.

My father was in WWII and the LST brings the past to life. The ship even has a smell of the past. Engine room, the Bay Area of where the tanks would be hauled, and the radio room were my favorites. The tours are detailed and informative. If you like experiencing history then this is the place. They even have... More

We were the only two people on the tour , had a retired Navy man who had crewed on the boat when they take it to different cities, a wealth of information. Please take your children/grandchildren to see this floating exhibit. It is... More
