Our historic ship which has served this country in three wars.
Be a part of history aboard the S.S. Lane Victory. The Lane Victory served in WWII, The Korean War and Vietnam. It is the only ship to participate in all three wars. Today, the Lane Victory serves as a museum and memorial for the men and women who have bravely served in the Merchant Marines. We are committed to preserving the memory and telling the story of these heroic civilians who are often overlooked in our history books and films.
As a tour guide, you’ll lead visitors around the ship giving them background information on our historical, wartime memorabilia along with sharing the stories of the Lane Victory and other Merchant Marine ships.
We offer training, flexible schedules, school credit and free admission to all our events.
