Restored in 1985, the SS American Victory saw action in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. The warship was towed from Texas to its permanent location in Channelside in downtown Tampa behind the Florida Aquarium in 1999. Now, as a museum, visitors can experience an unforgettable voyage aboard the ship. Explore the three-level cargo holds, hospital, galley, weaponry, flying bridge, engine room and more.
