Located on the shoreline of Muskegon Lake in downtown Muskegon, the USS LST 393, is an LST-1-class tank landing ship originally launched in 1942. She is one of only two LSTs surviving in their original configuration. Along with ship tours and the expansive collection on board, memorial and special events are hosted on-board. Truly unique experiences include summertime “Movies on the Deck” in the evening and Sunday Yoga on the Deck. Overnight sleepovers are also available for scouts. A recent addition to her grounds was the dedication of the “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” sculpture in honor of Muskegon native, and inspiration for the Andrew Sisters song, World War II bugler Clarence Zylman. The LST welcomes you aboard May through September.
