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 TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY UNTIL LABOR DAY. MICHIGAN HEALTH PROTOCOLS WILL BE FOLLOWED.

D-Day Commemoration, Swing Dance a big success

The commemoration of the 77th anniversary of D-Day, the massive invasion of Europe during World War II in which USS LST 393 took part, was a success. Health restrictions have reduced the scope of activities, but Rolling Thunder Michigan Chapter 4 in conjunction with the LST 393 Veterans Museum worked to mark the important anniversary. On the weekend of June 4-5 (the invasion was June 6, 1944), there was 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."
