We arrived 10 min. before their opening time and were told to wait 10 min. and then they would start around 10:15 a.m. We waited 10 min. and went in, paid for our tour and were told the tour would start shortly. After a while they turned the video on about the ship so we watched that for a while.... More

Run by vets and historically one of the last working models of World War II. The veterans and guides are very knowledgeable of the history of the area and the role played by LST 325. A destination place soon to be moored in a newly updated facility on the Ohio River with hotel accommodations nearby along with restaurants and other... More

Took 1 hour tour of LST docked in Evansville. Interesting, well informed tour guide. History of its being brought back home from Greece by WW2 vets very interesting part of American history.

My Dad served as a Jr. Navigation Officer on LST 42 during WWII. Visiting Evansville for a music festival, I saw this tour as an attraction and made the time to get there. A good decision. The tour guide served on this LST and our group was just 3 people. We had lots of opportunities to relate and discuss conditions... More

Our tour guide was very knowledgable and was eager to hear my dad tell his experience as a soldier in WWII. Every thing was very well preserved and they explained some of the small things that were not exact? Not easy to get around in a wheel chair but that's to be expected. Still worth the trip.

Went on a tour with friends from Australia and had a great time learning about the history of the LST. They could not believe how many LST were made right here in Evansville. Looking forward to have the ship move to the river front.

This is an awesome piece of history. Very interesting and informative. It is something that everyone should see. You can really imagine how awful it must have been crossing the ocean during war time in this ship. Any WW2 vet or their descendants should visit the LST. Evansville is very proud of it's contribution to history.

Took the morning and drive here. The tour was educational. Our tour guide and former army was riddled with stories. The tour was an hour long. Parts of the ship were very warm. We took the tour with 10 camp kids. I think if it had been mostly adults the tour would have been a bit different.
