  • Don't let the location fool you, this museum is absolutely wonderful. They give you freedom to walk around yourselves and can go up to the deck of the ship to the captain's quarters all the way down to the engine rooms. It is a beautiful piece of history with many artifacts to look at. For three adults a college student and a twelve year old we had so much fun. (Also it's priced VERY reasonably) I will say many of the coolest areas are not handicap accessible and people may have a difficult time toting small children up and down the steep stairs.
  • A fabulous place. So interesting and educational. You can feel.the history. I love this ship/museum. They also have fun events.
  • Beautiful and well maintained ship. They have movies on board every-so-often so check their schedule for timings!
  • Visited this place for July 4th fireworks. Excellent view right on the lake. Recommend bringing folding lawn chairs.
  • My father was in the engine room of the "brand new" LST throughout WWII and participated in four invasions including Normandy. In 2010 he brought his entire family to this museum so we could see him "in his element." What a treat for all of us. This museum is outstanding.
