Field Trips

Bring your group on a guided tour of the American Victory Ship and Museum, an American icon, national treasure, and one of the only three fully operational cargo vessels in the country. Your group will walk the decks just like sailors, soldiers and airmen did during the WWII, Korean and Vietnam wars.

Tours Geared Just for Kids

Tours are always age appropriate! Adults will be in awe of the impressive and honorable history of the vessel, learning facts and details from yesteryear to today. Children will learn about core values and characteristics exemplified by our nation’s military such as dignity, respect, freedom, selflessness, sacrifice, teamwork, and dedication.

Youths revel in the thrill of being aboard, ringing bells, climbing on guns, and experiencing the visit of a lifetime – all with fun.

The tour supports the Sunshine State Standards by teaching students about historical storytelling, World War II history, Florida history, and working with primary sources.

Join us and relive history!
