Great experience. Would like to go again when it's cooler outside so we can enjoy it more.

It can get hot up there in mid day but definitely worth seeing this piece of history

Be prepared for warm temps inside the ship unless you visit during January or February. There are air conditioned refuges, however. Also be aware that some of the ladders between decks, especially on the top decks, can be rather steep and narrow. As someone who has sailed on a ship of this vintage, I was impressed with the overall condition of the ship. The displays are interesting and informative.

Very interesting, but hard to follow the steps marked out on the ground. My ADD kept distracting me so I ended up going way out of order. So much to see!

This was an awesome experience. We did not take a guided tour; we opted to walk through the ship on our own. Some areas need restoration, but it was still great to see all of the areas and memorabilia. I definitely recommend it for anyone who likes history. Great day.

From Our Editors

Since its construction in 1944, the 455-foot SS American Victory has weathered quite a few storms, including World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. From those storms, the steamship developed a rich history filled with stories that echo throughout its three-level cargo holds, hospital, flying bridge, mess halls, crew cabins, and lifeboats. Located in downtown Tampa, behind The Florida Aquarium, the cargo vessel now serves as a museum with exhibits showcasing rare artifacts including photographs, uniforms, medals, documents, and naval gear. Guests on the shipboard museum may take in the history at their own pace with self-guided tours, or book a guided tour led by knowledgeable docents able to walk backward as smoothly as Michael Jackson.
