Welcome aboard USS LST 393

Walk where heroes walked, right in downtown Muskegon! History jumps out at you from every deck and every corner. Discover LST 393's outstanding wartime record as you tour a nationally renowned veterans museum with artifacts and displays honoring those who served America and fought for the freedoms we enjoy today.

USS LST 393 Veterans Museum is now closed for the 2016 tour season. It will reopen for tours 4-29-2017.

LST 393 damaged in freak windstorm

USS LST 393 sustained thousands of dollars of damage during a Dec. 28 storm that brought 65 mph winds from the northeast. That unusual high-wind direction pushed the ship away from its dock, snapping lines and dragging the anchor. The warship is back and secure; all plumbing, walkways and ladders have been replaced at great expense so the museum could open on time in May.  If you wish to help, tax-deductible contributions can be sent to USS LST 393 Veterans Museum, 560 Mart St., Muskegon, 49440, or use the credit card link on this page. You can also call 231-288-4503 or 231-725-5918.
