I had no idea what exactly this would be, I just thought it sounded fun for my husband, who too often has to do "girly" things with me. This was amazing. The ships are super, and the exhibits in each room gave super details. I learned so much, and had so much fun exploring the ships. A real treat was... More

I spent a Saturday afternoon at the Naval and Military Park on Buffalo’s waterfront and I am glad I did. I parked my car and walked along the water to the Park. Toured the ships and submarine, viewed the tower of the USS Boston, spent time relaxing on the lawn, and enjoyed some good food from a local food truck.... More

Its nice to be able to teach my children about the history and to actually have them be able to visit and experience this for themselves.

I really enjoyed walking around the park area. There are quite a few boats including PT,cruiser and ship.There were also tanks,a torpedo,submarine,military trucks and jeeps. We did not go inside so I can't comment on that. There are also several monuments to the local fallen heroes of several wars.

Enjoyed navigating through the ships and submarine while learning about their history. The self guided tour takes you through many areas of the ships and gives you a good feel for what life would have been like for sailors aboard these ships. I would recommend a visit for anybody with an interest in military history.

If you enjoy history this is for you. I really enjoyed going through all the ships. I was especially interested in the submarine and just how people were able to be in them for any length of time. A nice trip if you are into that type of thing

I've loved this place since I was a child. Touring the USS Sullivans or going through the Croaker (submarine) is pretty amazing. The history, recognizing our Veterans and active service people by visiting the memorials is pretty nice. Another relaxing place to visit and people watch.

We brought our five year old who was excited to see ships and submarine. While much of the historical content was beyond her comprehension, she enjoyed navigating the boats and submarine. My husband and I enjoyed touring the ships. great way to spend a couple of hours in buffalo.

Having lived in Western NY for much of my adult life, and never having been to Buffalo to see the waterfront, we decided to do this on the spur of the moment. Wow, was I shocked at the improvements that have been made on the waterfront in Buffalo. There are 3 ships which you can tour for one very low... More

This exhibit was the best opportunity to wander around two ships and a submarine that I have ever had. I stumbled upon the park looking for the waterfront. The museum and gift shop were excellent and I jumped at the chance to take the self guided tour of the ships and the submarine, museum and tour for $10 total. My... More
