327 Foot museum ship from WWII and Viet Nam. It is a National Historic Landmark. INGHAM served our country from 1936 to 1988 and in 1985 was the most decorated ship in United States Service as noted in a letter from President Ronald Reagan in the exhibit room. It is the last American Warship afloat to have sunk a German U-Boat (626) in WWII. It served as the Flagship for the seaside operation of General MacArthur's return to Corrigedor in the Philippines.

The cutter is not only an amazing ship to tour, but Friday and Saturday nights you can sit on deck and watch the sunset. One of the best kept secrets. You have to check out the self guided tour, then come back later.

Kudos to the extremely knowledgeable staff. Loved talking to the 'owner' and general manager. Tour was fascinating - loved the pictures and memorabilia. A couple of very steep staircases between levels of the ship but manageable. A true treasure with an owner and staff preserving...More

Forget the craziness of Mallory Square, and take your sunset pictures here! They limit the number of people they allow onboard, so you'll have plenty of room to sit, take photos, and have a drink. What a great surprise to discover this gem!

My husband was in the Coast Guard for 22 years and it was an honor to be allowed to tour this wonderful piece of history. If you can't do narrow stairs, not a tour for you!
