Troop carrier has been wonderfully restored. Great museum located on the main deck. During the summer, they FREE play movies on the top deck with snacks, donations accepted. Pancake breakfast is also very good.

This is a real piece of History, the enlisted mens comforts are very small compared to the officers quarters including the mess area, someone told us the LST stood for Large Slow Target, or that is what the enemy thought. The ship has a lot of history and should be seen by anyone interested in WWII.

A first class look at the ship that changed the war in both the Pacific and European Theaters. A true life understanding of what both the sailors who were stationed on the LST and the soldiers and marines who were transported on the LST had to endure

This is an amazing museum with so much history from WWII. This ship made several trips to The Invasion of Normandy. It's incredible how it has been preserved all these years later. We actually held my Daughter's wedding on the deck & had her reception inside the boat. It was very affordable & such a neat venue. I was told... More

This museum was interesting....the big question is why it and the submarine aren't combined. Must be something local .... politics would be my guess....anyway, we got to both museums.....this one was interesting....kind of let you see what it would have been like just before landing on a beach during WWII.....pretty frightening.

I had planned to visit this site months ago, but did not realize that their season ended October 1. When we arrived we met a gentleman who worked there. When I mentioned that my late grandfather had served on an LST, he was kind enough to allow me and my friend to look around. I can't tell you how much... More

Actual LST from World War II now docked in Muskegon. Museum inside tells history of the role of LST's during the multiple invasions of WWII. Visitors are encouraged to walk through the LST to visualize the gates, the bridge, and other important parts of the ship. Preserved LST's are very rare. This is a must while in Muskegon, MI

Landing Ship Tanks were a valuable vessel used in WW2 & were heavily relied on with the D-Day landings & the retaking of islands in the Pacific. Only a few still remain, this is one that has been turned into a museum ship. After WW2 she was sold to transport new cars in the lakes area. The new owner made... More

The ship was very interesting and fun to explore through. It was nice that you could actually go to the top of the ship and look out over the water. We went on a humid day day so it was quite hot inside the small sections of the ship. My niece and nephew went with us and they enjoyed exploring... More
