On a recent 8 day visit to Buffalo my husband, 15 year old grandson and I happened upon the Naval & Military Park. We toured both ships and the submarine, plus the museum. It was a most enjoyable step back into history. Our grandson thoroughly enjoyed seeing the insides of the vessels, particularly the crews' quarters. We at one point... More

Naval history in downtown Buffalo. The ships and outdoor exhibits are very nicely maintained and exhibited. The only downside is parking is not the greatest.

If your a military history lover, or just enjoy exploring ships this place is for you. Warning if you are unable to climb or descend up very steep and narrow stairs do not attempt this tour there are too many to navigate to count. Two ships and submarine are on self guided tour one is an eighties missile cruiser and... More

We had a beautiful day to explore the museum and ships. This is a must see if you are in the Buffalo area. For the 2 ships and submarine, it took us about 1.5-2 hrs to explore. The guy at the front was crabby. He said to look at our sheet to find out which room was used for what.... More

Locals have done a marvelous job of putting together a naval museum on the naval ship and submarine. But, keep in mind these are the real "mckoy" and require good climbing ability on steep ladders to the various decks and the ability to maneuver in tight spaces and in and out of submarine hatches to get around. I say this... More

Visited with my 4 year old and almost 2 year old. My 4 year old was very interested in touring the ships. We went during the week and it was not very busy. Just touring the 2 ships took almost two hours. There was a lot to see and read about. If traveling with young children it would be impossible... More

We only got to see The Sullivans ship before it poured. Very pleasantly surprised at how many areas you could tour. Nicely preserved and lots of explore. Money well spent for sure. Great for all ages over 4. Not the greatest with babies or toddlers (steep stairs)
