American Victory Ship Mariners Memorial Museum

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.

Customer Reviews

Super interesting self-guided tour. Ran into a guide who told us a little more about the ship, which was nice to hear. Loved the grittiness of it all, seeing how troops lived and worked.

This place is so cool. You get to walk all over the ship and see the living quarters, bathrooms, kitchen, decks, battle shooter, etc. Best to go when it is under 85 degrees out, as some parts can get a little warm. I loved it! There is even a metal tube that you can talk through from one deck to another. Parking is free if you drive right up to the ship.
