I was very surprised at he size of the park. It was cold out but we managed to visit all of the displays representing the branches of the US military. There were many name plaques commemorating service of locals for the various branches. There is the aircraft park (US Navy and Air Force) as well as the "Big" ship in... More

With my father being a navy man (God rest his soul) this park holds a special place in my heart for me. I have visited this park on a couple of occasions and each time I enjoy it more. I plan to go back again in the Spring and will recommend this park to anyone. No one should ever miss... More

Very cool way to check out the ships that the US Navy used. Up close and personal with the equipment. Probably one of the better Navy Ship museums. Very reasonable prices. If you're a history buff, there is a lot of information in the main building upstairs.

Located along the waterfront, it is a fantastic place to visit. You can go aboard each ship and walk through. It gives you a first hand look at life at sea. Also a lot of history.

An amazing display of military appartus from 3 wars, & peacetime, history hits one in the face. The USS Sullivan is surprizing, how so many sailors lived in such small quarters, everything is utilized perfectly, not one square inch wasted. Great day trip for all...

I visit the Marina and Naval Park several times throughout the year (mostly in the spring/summer). It's inexpensive (or free to just walk around and look). It's located in downtown Buffalo, which is convenient if you want to take the rail, but there is also plenty of parking.
