The tours of the ships was very informative. Beware if you have bad knees ~ stairs are involved. I hear they're haunted. Honestly a great tour for all ages. The new AIM ~ Afganistan, Iran Memorial is heartbreaking, but beautifully put together. Take the time to visit our beautiful city.

I walked through party of them, but my husband went through the whole thing and loved it all. This is the only missle ship of its kind on display. Walking through and seeing the massive equipment needed to move these models around was a real eye opener. My husband considered this one of his favorite parts of the trip.

It was very interesting to visit the 2 naval boats and one submarine. There are clear arrows everywhere to follow and we could take cool photos everywhere. However, it is better to plan to have enough time for the visit (1.5 hour to 2 hours if you want to stop to read the comments and stories displayed) as there is... More

Great time walking through the park and looking at all the displays. The kids enjoyed the ships and climbing on the speed boats on display. Next time we will need to tour the USS Little Rock.

This was an enjoyable visit. Self-guided tour of the ships was informative and interesting. The adjoining park and memorials were well-kept and covered conflicts through Afghanistan and Iraq. Nice area to sit and reflect. The only drawback was trying to find parking. The website says free parking, but signs to parking were confusing and we ended up circling around a... More

I have toured many ships in the past and was pleasantly surprised by the level of access available. The inside exhibits were well done as well covering all of the military conflicts in the area. When done exploring the ships the surrounding park is a lovely place for a stroll or afternoon picnic. WARNING: Don't go here if you are... More

I've been to the park several times, and it never fails to impress. Seeing the war ships up close is cool. But, the best part is sitting beside the Erie Canal at "Canal Side" and enjoying a cold craft beer. Another plus is its proximity to the Pearl Street Brewing Co.

There are three WW II ships tied up here and open to the public: a light Cruiser, a destroyer and a sub. The self-guided tour takes about an hour and a half or more and gets you into virtually every corner of every ship. For an ex-Navy guy like me, it was a great experience and brought back a lot...
