Higgins Landing Craft

A “landing craft, vehicle, personnel” (LCVP), also called a Higgins boat, is part of the Louisville Naval Museum’s collection. Although currently located in North Carolina, the LCVP will be brought to Louisville, Kentucky for restoration. Ultimately, the LCVP will part of the museum as an interactive exhibit about the LCVP uses and the experiences American soldiers had in such vessels.
