  • The pride of Evansville, IN LST 325 is the only Navy monument capable of independent movement. LST 325 is a faithful restoration of a working "workhorse of the sea" that carried US soldiers and Marine...  read more »
  • Surprised our 10 yr old history loving son with this tour. Very interesting. Tour guide had a lot of interesting facts and knowledge. 
  • We found the LST on the Ohio River near Evansville while on a road trip. We are interested in history and decided to take a tour. Volunteers conduct these tours so don't expect them to start right on ...  read more »
  • Very interesting and informative. A must see for those curious about war history.
  • I toured with two gentlemen who served on her. My boys were 7 and. 8. Former naval officer's spoke of what she (LST) had been through. They also spoke of Normandy. At the end of the tour is when they told my boys she was built here in Evansville. Whirlpool. Where papa makes washers? They laughed. You know the Pledge to the Flag when you put your hand on your heart? That is the Allegiance. When needed everybody does whatever they can. The squirrel on frosty says like that. RED SKELETON 7yr, shoke my kids hands and thank you for letting them talk to a new generation.
  • I went to tour the LST-325 a few weeks ago with my father. The tour was great! My Dad and I got to bond together more, and it was an overall fun experience. Our guide went into great detail about everything to help us all get to know how it was like to be in the LST-325 during wartime. He also was able to tell us about the history of the LST ships in general. The tour went through many part of the LST-325 and we got to see a lot! This includes the vehicles aboard the ship, the cafeteria (you could actually buy food there when it is open), the crew's sleeping quarters, and more! Before the tour, the lobby was a pleasant waiting area. There was a lot of well placed merchandise to buy and I felt like I needed to buy it all! I settled on just a blue wristband with "LST-325" engraved into it. The cashiers where friendly when we bought it, too. In the waiting room, there was a television that showed the history of the LST ships in general. It was short and looped, however. It was still interesting to watch, though! They even had chairs in front of the television. Overall, touring the LST-325 was a brilliant experience to have! I am glad we went there, and it makes me want to tour more ships from wars!
  • Visited LST 325 while she was docked in Pittsburgh over the Labor Day weekend (2015). She is in superb condition and the tour was a delight. The staff/crew were more than eager to explain anything and take the time with you to share details. The vessel does not have air conditioning (except in Officers Country) but they had plenty of floor fans moving the air around in other parts of the ship. There was a nice gift shop with souvenirs and books set up in the main hold forward. Definitely a GREAT tour which will take you about 35 minutes minimum. Highly recommend!
  • We visited in Marrietta, OH a few years ago. Absolutely loved being able to walk through the ship. Hats off to the volunteers for their hard work and dedication. Couldn't be possible without them.
