Great to visit Navy ships and submarine used in the WW2. Would have appreciated a guided tour but we visited at our leisure and this is appreciated way to do this visit. Great to see the Buffalo Canal and Wharf.

Visiting dad for Father's Day brings family to reminisce with dad about years gone by and he always enjoys a day at the Buffalo and Erie County Naval Park. Father's Day turns into Father's Week so we could get to all the places he likes to experience. Walking up the steps and through the boats make us only imagine what... More

I've lived in the Buffalo area all of my life. With activities and events for all ages the waterfront is one of my favorite places. I visit several times per year. Lake Erie is gorgeous especially at sunset. There's a great view of the lighthouse and the infamous grain elevators which are now part of the Buffalo Historical Society. Various... More

I obtained a veteran discount which was unexpected. Top of the stairs was a brief history of the U.S. Navy boats, America revolution, War 1812, Civil War. 2 Battleships docked and 1 submarine. Very cool. Give yourself about two hours to go through everything.

If you've never seen Navy ships and submarines, you'll enjoy this. Nice memorial. Real nice park and grounds. Worth taking in while at Canalside. Go in the restaurant and order a spicy Bloody Mary. Best I ever had!

When visiting this museum you are able to walk through old authentic military ships, including one submarine, plus see some planes and other hardware that is on the site. Inside the building the upstairs has a small museum area. The walk takes you through three ships, one after another. You will be inside spaces and also out on the various... More

The home of the USS Little Rock, USS Sullivan and the sub the Croaker. There was also a display of models of many ships and tributes to Buffalo men and women who have served in the military. They also have a wonderful timeline of the events during the wars in the area.

Greatly enjoyed looking at the ships and also walking along the water. Beautiful flowers and memorials for all branches of service. Was almost 5 (closing time) when we arrived after work so didn't pay to go on the ships but still very enjoyable. Saw people getting on and off boat tours. There was also a restaurant in the building in... More
