excellent tour of the ship. Guide was knowledgeable and the tour was very interesting and informative. There are many exhibits on the ship as well as the ship quarters and history of the ship. I have the upmost respect for our military and these ships had deplorable living conditions. Thanks to all who served in any capacity and on these ships.

Great tour and guide, plenty of time given for taking pics. There was lots of walking in narrow spaces/steps. I recommend going on a cool day. And bring water and snacks for kids while waiting for the tour to start. We went for a homeschool trip and brought a field trip printout for the kids to fill out afterward. I would consider going back with just the older kids. It was too hot for the baby.

About USS LST Ship Memorial

LSTs were an integral part of the United States' naval endeavors during World War II—LST signifies "landing ship, tank", meaning that these vessels could support amphibious missions, traveling directly onto shore without docking, for a quick release of troops, cargo, and tanks. The LST-325 began life as a war vessel in October 1942, and made her first journey out to sea in February of the following year. After serving the US proudly during the Second World War, the year following, and a brief stint with Greece's navy, she was acquired by The USS Ship Memorial, Inc. in 2000 and sailed across the Atlantic one final time. Now, visitors can take a guided tour of the fully operational ship where she lives in Evansville, Indiana, gleaning a sense of her grand history and witnessing the maintenance of such an impressive barge.

Here's some more information about the guided tour:

  • Covers these areas of the ship: the main deck, troop berthing, the tank deck, mess deck, the galley, the ship's stern, the wheel house, the officer's country, and the captain's cabin
  • Visitors travel throughout the ship's body, even down below via three different sets of stairs.
  • Questions are encouraged throughout the tour, as are photos.
