  • Had an amazing tour this weekend with our tour guide, Sarge! My father served on LST 391 in the Korean War and am so grateful he was able to visit this lovingly refinished LST run by an all volunteer crew. The tour is very information and interesting. LST 325 is a jewel in Evansville and a beautiful piece of american history.
  • This deserves 10 stars! Got to visit this on Labor Day in Nashville. What a treat and an honor. It's amazing to get such a real, up close and personal experience like this. The incredible gentlemen that host this tour are amazing. So polite, attentive, respectful, kind, informative... I'll be here for days describing them. They are SO knowledgeable of this ship and stories about it. They take the time to explain things clearly. No question is too dumb. Never felt rushed. My kids loved it too, ages 9-19. No documentary could provide such a personal experience, especially from such a humble, witty and serving group of men like these!! Excellent time!! Gives you goosebumps when you realize you are walking on and actually visiting history! Thankful for our servicemen!
  • Great place to visit! Really interesting guide! If you enjoy history, you need to visit!
  • Very COOL! Stumbled across this ship museum on one of our trips, and sure​ glad we did. Amazing history and inspiring story of this ship's journey back to the U.S.
  • 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.
