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

Found this by chance. Not much advertising compared to USS Silverside. Kind of a home made museum. Yes, could be more professional but i liked the volunteer spirit. One could spend several hours when going in all detail. We spent about one hour. Ideally I would have appreciated a guided tour. The self guiding for is also ok though.

We visited this museum as family and really enjoyed it. There is always something new to learn and if you are patriotic or a veteran, you will definitely appreciate this museum.

The ship itself was interesting and fun to explore. Compared to other ship museums we have visited this one is pretty rustic. Many of the exhibits are home made and there was no flow or theme to follow as you travel through the ship. The museum is all self guided and the sign postings of where to go were poor.... More

We recently attended one of the movies on deck on a Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. We returned the next night to watch fireworks from the deck, what an experience. Everyone was polite and friendly and there is no better place to spend a summer evening overlooking Muskegon Lake.

This is a very informative floating museum, and I loved that is it self guided. You can walk all over this ship and see artifacts and read alot of info about the ship. It gets hot inside so dress cool.
