We recently attended one of the movies on deck on a Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. We returned the next night to watch fireworks from the deck, what an experience. Everyone was polite and friendly and there is no better place to spend a summer evening overlooking Muskegon Lake.

This is a very informative floating museum, and I loved that is it self guided. You can walk all over this ship and see artifacts and read alot of info about the ship. It gets hot inside so dress cool.

I had such a good time going back into my element! Since it is now a museum and was a car ferry for years a lot has been done to her, but I was thrilled to see so much like it was then! Great job taking care of her.

What was it like at sea on a ship during WW2? Well, you can answer that and many other questions on board the LST 393. Take the time to look at the pictures of the people that served our country. Look at the equipment, living spaces, medical, engineering spaces, after steering, shaft alleys, pilot house, chain locker, and much more.... More

This is a non-guided tour of a WW2 LST. You would think that most of the museum would be naval in theme, it really wasn't. They have a nice wide array of artifacts and displays. This is a good "side-stop" that should take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours to fully enjoy. Definitely not a "destination" trip but fun to... More

Great exhibits well laid out and very educational. I spent a year on a sister ship LST 821 in the late 60's brought back lots of memories. You do not have to be a gator navy sailor to enjoy this great old lady

We decided to go here on a whim. My daughters, 9 and 17, both enjoyed it greatly! They each got their own experience from it. It has many great artifacts which were donated by soldiers and their families. This is a great place to go for a walk back into our country's history!

Good museum! We were able to go all over the boat and see it all. I would recommend it to families to learn about the sacrifices that were made for us to live in a free country.

Incredible view into the history of WWII and D-Day. Pays respect to veterans of all eras. The museum collection is very personal and you can feel the connection to those who served.

The LST 393 is a fantastic opportunity to see how the sailors lived, worked and contributed to the war effort. This exhibition ship is maintained and presented by a dedicated bunch of volunteers who really know their stuff. It's an opportunity to see how life really was and what they accomplished during WWII. Examples of the cargo carried onboard LST's... More
