Totally great! The Vets are refurbishing this last LST purchased from Greece or Turkey. Made in Evansville ( I think) these crafts helped win the war. Go in cooler season. Believe me.

This is actually from my experience from early 2011... The tour guide was really knowledgeable. He spent a lot of time answering my questions and a lot of time making sure my kids were not losing interest. It's cool learning about the battles this ship was in. Also, don't forget to ask about the table in the current breakroom. The... More

The LST is an amazing ship that I'll bet most people didn't know existed! The tour is wonderful and it's fun seeing so many parts of the ship. Turns out my husband's step-father was evacuated during WWII on this VERY vessel which made it fun for us!

Location is a bit awkward to reach as it is not on a main road not hard to get to and parking is plentiful and just steps from the ships store and covered gangway to the ship. Hopefully they will be able to relocate to the riverfront downtown Evansville, making access much better. My guide was very knowledgeable and answered... More

Everyone should take the opportunity to visit the LST in Evansville. Well maintained with knowledgeable guides, everyone in your party will get something out of this tour. If you have past military in your party, all the better. Chances are, your guides will be past military, too.

It was Memorial Day weekend and we thought this would be a great place to visit. Our guide was really knowledgeable and you could tell he loved giving tours and sharing information with us. Since it was the holiday, we got a 30 minute FREE tour but we would have gladly paid the admission fee for a longer tour. It... More

The "crew" of this active ship is very helpful and informative. The tour guide we had had actually been active duty on an LST, so he is at home aboard a ship like this. (He also can operate out of the ship's radio station, which houses a ham shack as well, for amateur radio operators running HF. WW2LST.) I had... More

This boat is amazing in the fact it's been maintained, restored and actually RUNS, yes sails! This thing is huge, and holds over 20 LARGE vehicles in it's lower cargo hold (tanks, jeeps, etc.) plus several up on deck. The guides are male volunteers, some vets. It's $10 and well worth it. Small gift shop inside check in and then... More

I do not know how to rate, it closed when I got there. It closed at 4, if you need to see around, you'd probably arrive before 3, it's the last tour begins.
