Plan Your Visit

 
 

The LST-325 calls Evansville, Indiana home and is open for tours with seasonal hours throughout the year. Every year in late summer she sails to visit various other ports. In 2019 her volunteer crew will take her to Chattanooga, TN; Decatur, AL; and Aurora, IN. See a complete schedule below.

We are a FULLY OPERATIONAL ship and all tours in Evansville are guided. Standard tours include the Main Deck, Troop Berthing, Tank Deck, Mess Deck, Galley, Stern of ship (Guns and Anchor), Wheel House, Officer's Country, and the Captain's Cabin. This tour includes up to 6 ladders (sets of stairs).

If your party would like to avoid ladders we offer a shorter Main Deck Tour (subject to guide availability) that consists of the History, Guns, the Stern of the ship (Guns and Anchor), and Officer's Country and Galley if possible (must be able to step over hatches).  We also try to make every tour special.  Please call ahead for all Main Deck tours. 

You are allowed to ask questions and take pictures at any point during the tour. We recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes. Heels of any type are not advised. During the summer we recommend carrying water during the tour (available in the Gift Shop) due to the increased temperatures onboard ship. During the winter, bundle up for the weather.

Where to Find Us

The USS LST 325 is located just off Waterworks Road just east of downtown Evansville, Indiana 11 months out of the year. During the months of August and September the ship sails to other port cities to share a piece of our nation's history and to educate the public about LSTs and the men who served on them.
