This military transport has been well reconditioned. The displays of local veterans along the side of the LST tell the stories of many of Muskegon's finest. It is nice to see some interest in Muskegon's military history. I was fortunate enough to also enjoy the ship with many of my classmates. Our 40th High School Reunion was held on the... More

Was a few years back when new, but the museum and tour were nice. Were developing at the time. Need to go back and see what has been added and changed. Love the movies on the deck in the summer. Have taken my niece with me and enjoyed a fun evening with a small crowd. Highly recommend this experience and... More

Very neat to see the LST in person and try to put yourself in the boots of the boys that filled that boat. Photos are neat along with the jeeps on board and the information about the ship.

Well reconditioned, lots of vintage collections, including a Willys Jeep, uniforms, and a tour to the crew quarters and bridge that winds all over the place.Not for the claustrophobic- it was a working ship after all.) Many collections are viewable without climbing lots of stairs. Summer weekends there are 1940's vintage movies on the open air top deck or a... More

Wonderful surprise! Doesn't look like much from the outside but it will wow you on the inside. Items from each WW forward. Volunteers run the ship and keep it open for everyone to enjoy. Well worth the time to visit and will return to take spouse. Highly recommend for history buffs!

Nice self paced tour. Ship was big and lots to see. Would have been nice to see a tour guide who could answer more of the questions we had.

My 15 year old twins loved this ship/museum. They considered it the highlight of a beach weekend. The ships is almost 100% accessible and is crammed full of artifacts and history. What a resource for the average middle school and high school student! This is a do not miss kind of experience for the history buff. Be advised that it... More

This ship saw lots of service in world war II including Omaha Beach in Normandy! There are 6 decks to explore. Between decks the ladders are steep. You can see where the sailors bunked and ate their meals. On the main level there are lots of displays of local men and woman who served in different wars, also lots of... More
