My husband and I took advantage of a free tour of the naval park on some random day last summer (fall?). It was something we wouldn't have necessarily gone to if it weren't free, but now that we know what it is, we would be more than willing to pay the price of admission! Nice setup, although I would suggest... More

Money well spent. Self guided tour aboard USS Little Rock, USS The Sullivan's and the submarine, Crocker. Lots of construction so was a little tricky navigating to the waterfront but def worth the trip.

A hands-on self-guided tour of a destroyer, a cruiser and a submarine -- a great history lesson and tribute to US Navy

You can spend as much time you wish to do so. We spent several hours. Loved the self guided tour. It is sobering, makes you appreciate the men who spent months or years in those tight spaces in the vast oceans fighting for our country. Great visuals, artifacts in perfect condition! Lots of stairs to climb, but it is safe,... More

This park has a museum that contains 2 ships and 1 submarine from the second world war. The exhibits also include other military equipment and personal exhibits about various conflicts since WW2. A worthwhile place to visit to help maintain this legacy and history as it is all volunteers who run it.

Great location, excellent ships and we were lucky to be there while it was manned by a group of military re-enactors. Very informative.

As part of Boy Scout Troop 37, we took a complete stay over package and tour of this wonderful park. As part of the Scout program, we were fed on the USS Little Rock for dinner on Saturday night and breakfast on Sunday morning. Meals are served in the actual galley of the ship. Scouts and leaders sleep in the... More

We visit almost every year for 2-3 hours, easily following the self-guided tour at our own pace. Our boys and girls ages 5-17 all enjoy it. It's a unique experience navigating through these diverse ships, then walking thru an actual submarine. Very friendly staff; informative tours are available if interested. There's aircraft and land vehicles to see as well, surrounded... More

We spent a few enjoyable hours at this park on the Buffalo River. There are some interesting exhibits outside the museum on the history of the area and the western terminus of the Erie Canal. Since one of us was in a wheelchair we decided not to go into the museum. It is a great way to spend an nice... More
