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.
THE MUSEUM IS NOW OPEN FOR THE 2021 TOUR SEASON. IT WILL BE OPEN THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY UNTIL LABOR DAY. MICHIGAN HEALTH PROTOCOLS WILL BE FOLLOWED.
D-Day Commemoration, Swing Dance scheduled for June 4-5
Planners are hard at work getting ready to commemorate the 77th anniversary of D-Day, the massive invasion of Europe during World War II in which USS LST 393 took part. Health restrictions have reduced the scope of activities, but Rolling Thunder Michigan Chapter 4 in conjunction with the LST 393 Veterans Museum is working to mark the important anniversary. On the weekend of June 4-5 (the invasion was June 6, 1944), plans are for a swing dance on Friday evening, military reenactors and vehicles of the era, $5 ship tours, food vendors and on Saturday the popular "Air Raid Muskegon."
They're back! Movies on Deck returns June 25
Lights! Camera! Action! Movies on Deck returns to USS LST 393 this summer for a limited engagement. After a pandemic pause, the popular film series will resume Friday, June 25, with the World War II blockbuster “Dunkirk.” The action adventure “Jumanji” will be screened Friday, July 16, and the all-time classic “Toy Story” will delight all ages Aug. 6. The movies will start at dark (usually about 10 p.m.) and audience members are asked to observe safety spacing rules.
