Reviewed March 14, 2012

i never been on a ship before and thought this was cool. The ship is a retired tank carrier that was relocated from Greece. The older tour guide was knowledgable about the LST. leave your camera in the car, goto flickr and type in lst 325 for all kinds of photos. worth the ten dollar admittance. make sure the cashier gives you your change back, she "accidently" kept mine but returned it after calling.

“Living history”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Had an amazing experience! Got a tour from a WWII vet. Not sure if that's the norm or was a special thing, but the ship itself is an amazing opportunity to step back in time and experience a WWII warship.

“Great Historic Visit”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Went with my 2 little kids (under 5) 16 yo nephew, sister and husband. The only complaint I had was that it was really hard to hear the tour guide, but it was really fun to go through.
