AMERICAN VICTORY SHIP MARINERS MEMORIAL MUSEUM
The popular American Victory Restoration Tours allow visitors to view firsthand the on-going work to restore this icon of America’s merchant maritime might, a functioning, 1940s-era merchant cargo vessel which served during World War II and the Korean and Vietnam wars. Visitors experience virtually the entire ship. The developing museum contains photographs of the American Victory and other period merchant ships, U.S. Merchant Marine uniforms, medals and documents, personal recollections of life at sea as well as navigational equipment, hands-on displays and weaponry.
