“USS LST 393”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

This is a must see. I loved touring this ship and climbing all over its decks. My teenage son was not bored while on this ship. That is saying a lot for him to not be bored. He found it very interesting.

So many interesting things to see on this ship. If you have clausterphobia you might want to avoid the engine rooms. They are small and very hot. The kitchen, soldiers quarters, bathrooms, captains room, wheelhouse are interesting.

Our military men definitely need our support. The quarters they live in are tiny. They have no privacy. We take so much for granted. This really made me appreciate the comforts of home a whole lot more.

My family really enjoyed this part of our vacation.

“Military History Alive”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

If you enjoy exploring on your own, climbing narrow and steep stairwells, the smell of old metal and diesel fuel, and touching history; this adventure is for you. When our military once worked, slept, prepared and prayed for their lives on board this massive ship, they may have never imagined that some day it would be resting in the waters of Lake Michigan with families crawling over it and exploring its many rooms. I suspect they would have been pleased. Check out the engine room and just imagine the heat and noise. Venture to the pilot house and look at all the equipment and guages. Almost nothing is off limits here. Although children will love exploring, my 11 year old daughter thought it was cool but some below deck spaces were a bit claustrophobic for her. My teen son loved it, it was his third time and my father in law enjoyed the numerous military hardware displays as well as the massive engines, gears and cable. It was fun trying to figure out how things worked. If you like this site, also make sure to check out USS Silversides submarine nearby.

Interesting museum on an actual military boat. I found it very interesting with all the historical memorabilia and actually walking through the ship - all the levels.
