The LST 325 is a WWll Navy ship that was used during the war to land battle ready tanks and men to the beach. It was designed to be able to drop a ramp through open Bow Doors and because it was a flat bottom vessel, it could get right up to the beach to drop it's cargo of much... More

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

This was one thing we wanted to see as we passed through Evansville. Such a great exhibit. 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

If you have the smallest interst or just what to learn a little about WWII please go here. The cost was $10 for an adult and it's well worth it. We had a guided tour of the ship by a gentleman who knew his stuff and also currently still goes out on the ship from time to time. It's really... More

This is a an actual vintage WWII landing ship tank being lovingly maintained by dedicated volunteers! It is stocked with a lot of authentic memorabilia including a Higgins boat, big deck mounted guns and actual spots where shells have pierced the ship. We enjoyed the information provided by the well informed tour guide. The tour allows for an exploration of... More

This museum ship is important history for all to see. It closed at 4:00, so we came back the next morning and it was well worth it. The tour is given by retired sailors, so there are personal stories that make history come alive.
