Ship History
Ocean liner capabile of carrying 2,410 passengers in luxury. Converted to a troop transport during World War II capabile of carrying 5,500 passengers.

During the war, Queen Mary carried troops to the war, including a Pacific cruise. She survived a collision at sea, and carried the most troops of any wartime ship.

On March 28, 1942 the Queen Mary arrived in Sydney Harbor with American troops aboard. Too large to dock, the troops were loaded onto a ferry and transferred ashore.

Museum
Purchased by the city of Long Beach, California Queen Mary is permanently docked at Long Beach and open to the public for tours and events.
