Very informative tour that gives you a piece of WW2 history. Amazing story of how it was found and restored by a very dedicated group of retired navy men. Our tour had people of all ages and they all seemed quite interested in the story.

Wonderful historical piece of equipment that everyone should see. See what our fathers and grandfathers used during the war. It's great that this piece has been saved and put on display!

Excellent tour of the LST from a member of the restoration team. The history lesson was really well done, well explained. The history was awesome. I had no expectations of seeing just about everything on the LST, but the tour was really complete!

You get the full tour of the LST, there were very few spots we didn't get to at least look into. The guide was knowledgable and professional. Lots of history in this ship to be shared.

The museum is interesting but hard to keep attention up with small children and teenagers. Unless you are a history guroo this is not your thing.
