The only floating maritime museum in Florida is also one of the only four fully operational American WWII ships. Frequently touted as a national treasure, the self-guided tour of the ship will lead you through cargo holds, radio/gyro rooms, the hospital, the galley, signalling equipment, mess halls, crew cabins, lifeboats, the Captain's quarters, cargo and engine rooms. Furthermore, enjoy artefacts from the war such as maps, weapons, documents, photographs and uniforms. The museum is geared towards helping visitors understand the impact of maritime culture and industry. To this aim, it offers educational tours, semi-annual cruises and event hosting options. Contact the museum for further details. Getting a docent to show you around is great idea – these guys are so knowledgeable about the ship they’ll make it come alive for you.

Ss American Victory Mariners' Memorial And Museum Ship Reviews & Ratings
Amazing museum, however be aware of the heat. Not the best place to visit in the summer due to the heat and no air conditioning. Have an awesome haunted house every Halloween that is so much fun. I can't wait until it gets cooler. I want my 95 yr old Grandfather to tour the ship, as he served in WWII!!
Great experience! Seeing a ship that went to war and how well maintained is until today. The staff is very pleasant and friendly. Just one thing... Be ready to sweat if you go during times of heat.
It’s great to see a part of history that is living on and still set sail!! Go early in the summer as it gets extremely hot onboard.....their are a few areas that are air conditioned so you can cool off but most is not. Their are gorgeous views of the area from up top side of the ship. The movies are worth watching and have many facts that you may not have known!! Price is $10 but veterans and military get half price, definitely worth a look!! Would love to sail on this ship when it takes a trip out to sea!!
It was fun. All the people involved were so very nice. It was.pretty cool. Could've been a little longer. I would go back.
The story is not the ship itself, but those who sailed on it. The ship is still active and annually puts to sea, only one of four that do, so it's a living piece of history. You could rush through in an hour but a more leisurely pace will let you see things you hadn't imagined on other museum ships. You don't have to buy a hat, but if you do, you will be proud to describe to family and friends what you discovered at the American Victory ship.
