We went out on the water in a kayak. We could see the old industrial buildings of the Buffalo waterfront, such as grain elevators. Many were abandonned, but some were still operating, including two working draw bridges, both of which we saw drawing! Also, there are some old naval ships, which are a favorite of my son, and the view... More

Nice park right on the water. Fun to see the boats going by. Many military displays. Small concession stand. A lot of parking. Very scenic.

This was also on my husband's "to do" list for visiting this area. We have been to several similar sites over the east coast but this was our first destroyer. We were impressed with the destroyer but the cruiser seemed to be a bit more displays/museums than we expected. Despite the pouring rain, 49 degrees, and 30 mph winds we... More

Any patriot, or non-patriot will enjoy this small but impressive area, chock-filled with old torpedoes, jet planes that look like they are soaring above, a narrow, claustrophobia-inducing submarine, Navy ships with flags fluttering and tours available, plaques to read, and memorials to appreciate. There is an option for people (students, Scout troops, etc.) to spend a very unique night on... More

With the purchase of your ticket, you are able to take a tour through three ships - The USS Little Rock, USS Croaker, and USS Sullivans.

Spent just under 3 hours touring three historic naval ships, USS The Sullivan's, USS Little Rock and USS Croaker. Our small group was led by a wonderful docent who explained the history of each vessel, how they operate, who was on board and their specific jobs and, the ship's purpose while in service. Very well informed individual with a wonderful... More

Be sure and take the tour. It includes both ships the USS Little Rock and The USS Sullivans, as well as the submarine. It takes a while to get through them because there is so much to see and do. Check out the inside portion of the tour and the outside. This is a self guided tour.

Get the chance to walk through the different sections of real US ships and a submarine, look at photos and read information as you proceed. Affordable admission fee. Souvenir shop available. My only regret was stopping by at 3pm, 2 hours before closing - not enough time to read and look at the photos.

Five of us toured this just last weekend. It is bordering the Niagra River in Buffalo. The admission is very reasonable at $6 for senior citizens. We toured the two ships and the submarine. There is no tour guide, but we had a Marine and a former corpsman, so any questions we had were answered! We learned about the Sullivan... More

We were looking for the Erie canal when we came across this gem on the waterfront. Walk aboard retired Navy ships and submarine, to see what it was like for our servicemen during WWII. Very nicely set up and lots to see. From the weapons systems setups to the galley, nice restoration job. Kudos to Buffalo for having a very... More
