Just like coming home. I served on the USS Summit County LST1146 IN THE MID 60'S. The LST325 association has done a remarkable job of restoring the ship and to think they sailed it from Greece to Mobile, Alabama is remarkable in itself. I would hope that anyone who has served in the "Gator Navy" will come and visit. BRAVO... More

The LST is a great experience for everyone!! It really reminded me of how great our country is and when you are walking around and you imagine it in battle, it is really breathtaking! The only thing to watch out for, however, are the big steps in which I tripped several times on!! All in all... This attraction is..... GREAT!!

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.
