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.

If you are into either cool views, big boats or military history, then you should check out the LST. I actually live in the area and have passed the boat a hundred times without ever checking it out. I went to a wedding on the main deck last year and was shocked at how cool the boat is. The inside is a war museum and the outside deck has a great view of Muskegon lake. It's historically significant as well. Apparently, it was one of the ships used to transport tanks to the French Coast during the D day Invasion. Just ask the fellows that volunteer to run the tours, they tell you all about it.
