This was a very interesting tour. I wish it was handicapped accessible. I would love to take my parents.

Awesome. If you are unsure where to visit in Evansville. Take the time to see this ship. Guide was of course very informative and you can tell they really love this ship. Seeing this ship will remind us of why those men of WWII were the greatest generation.

The memorial was closed when we went. Will reopen April 1 but we were able to see if from the parking lot. Girl at the shop told us to go to the Evansville Museum and see the model/ cutaway there to get an idea of what it looked like inside. The exhibit that it is in also has some great... More

I served on LST 821 and when I saw how close the 325 was to North Al I had to make the trip. Lots of fond memories of my time on board. The tour guide was knowledgeable and had interesting facts about this particular ship. To walk the deck of a ship that was at Normandy in 1944 what a... More

And when it moves to river front in place of the nasty casino it will be great!!! Evansville is so fortunate to have this piece of history on our riverfront!

As a daughter of a WWII navy veteran this was very interesting and impressive. It is amazing that our veterans fought for this country while at sea on ships such as this. \

The last operational ship of its type offers much for WWII, Naval and History buffs. The whole family will enjoy the tour by someone who actually sailed onboard this or other LSTs. Great gift shop and wonderful views along the Ohio river. Highly recommended.

A lot of fun. Be forewarned, only open on certain days. Cost is $10 per adult, $5 per child. The tours start on the hour, so don't arrive more than 20 minutes before. Since the ship is still actively used, the tours are all guided, there is no time to look around on your own. The tours last right at... More

This is the last operational WWII LST, and was actually used during the DDay Operation June 6 1944. The historical value plus the story of the people who returned this ship from Greece to Evansville is interesting and valuable. A real piece of history.

The LST 325 is a functioning piece of American history that everyone should see given the chance. The boat tours are led by a knowledgeable volunteer group who keep the conversation friendly and make everyone feel welcome to speak up with questions. The gift shop has a few collectibles and other odds and ends. The tour itself is a roughly... More
