We were leaving the area when we saw the ship. My partner in travel is a war history lover so we had to stop. I'm glad we did. It is a fabulous tour of a ship and a tour back... read more

We were leaving the area when we saw the ship. My partner in travel is a war history lover so we had to stop. I'm glad we did. It is a fabulous tour of a ship and a tour back in time. You walk in the maw of the ship. It was a ship that was used when they beached... More

Another military attraction by the Muskegon Bay. You can see and experience by yourself the size of this vessel when you're in. There is a lot of other interesting things related to this vessel or the people who were part of it during the WWII. It's interesting place for military and History lovers. RomanP

My children really loved this stop! They didn't realize just how big it was inside or that they'd learn so much.

The LST 393 is in excellent shape. Much larger on the inside than I expected. Lots of exhibits. Beautiful memorial to all the veterans from the Muskegon area.

This ship was talking our troops to Omaha Beach on D-Day. This is a floating museum that has a colorful history. After the war it was a car transport carrier from Michigan to Wisconsin and back via lake Michigan. It's painted in its war colors now. A must see if you can.

Muskegon is so lucky to have this historical ship and the SS Sivlersides. If you live anywhere near and haven't been here, please go. It will give you more of an appreciation for what the WW II soldiers endured.

A visit to Muskegon is well worth it to visit one of the great monuments of the Second World War. It is vessel designed to ferry and land tanks and trucks from the sea to the land. LST 393 was used at Normandy on June 6, 1944 and open to the public on the waterfront just west of downtown Muskegon.... More

My wife and I were invited on board for a cocktail party and found ourselves ignoring the open bar to spend time looking at all the "stuff" contributed by WWII veterans who had either served on this ship (which is enormous, BTW) and exploring every inch of the ship -- which is completely open to visitors. Great reminder for those... More

Touring the LST 393 was not my idea -- I just went along with the group and had very low expectations. Needless to say, I was very pleasantly surprised AND I learned a lot! I also couldn't believe I spent almost 3 hours and was NOT bored. It was really very interesting. Take the time to watch the 'LST Trainng... More
