    This is a glimpse of WWII below the deck. It puts an entire new light on what it must have felt like heading out to establish a beach head during WWII. Equipment with the men wondering what would be w...  more »

    The U.S. LST-325 is the last of over 1,000 tank transport vessels built during World War II. Evansville built many of the war ships during that war. This particular vessel, # 325, participated in the D-Day invasion of France, at Normandy, in the second wave at Omaha Beach. Germany had no comparative vessel, helping the Americans to turn the table on the Germans. The vessel later participated in landing tanks, trucks, troops, other military hardware and munitions to fight Germany in the Battle of the Bulge, Africa, the Pacific theater and other locations. Discussions is the roles of Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, workers in the shipyards, including women, we're fascinating. The tour of the ship is fascinating and very informative. The tour guide knew his subject material inside and out, and made the tourists feel like they were there, at war landings. Don't miss the tour. It is very well worth the $10 fee.

    Our trip to the LST was great. It was more than we bargained for. What a great piece of history, and right here in our back yard. Go see it but dress cool in the summer time.

    A must see tour if you are in the area. As the last WWII LST and such an important ship class for amphibious landings, this ship is near the top of my list of ships I have visited. The ship is in good order and the staff was exceptionally knowledgeable and gave a solid tour. Tour cost was nominal and free for active duty personnel. Two thumbs up from this retired sailor.

    Way cool step back in time to enjoy something that people REALLY showed ALOT of TLC in overseeing for a lot of years. There are quite a few steps to get to everything the vessel has to offer..but a ridiculously awesome way to honor the men and woman of our armed services! Support this one!
