We had a great time in this park winding our way through a destroyer, a cruiser and a sub - up and down ladders, through narrow hallways, and across decks. What I learned during this visit gave me a whole new level of appreciation for people who served in the Navy - and also made be glad that I spent... More

This is a def fave to look at if you are into history and old ships. We loved searching into the boats and finding the history that may be hidden in them. If you are disabled it is not as easy to explore the area--you will be limited on what you can see. The sub was def interesting to see--so... More

Went to a concert saw Extreme on the waterfront, watched the sunset, and walked around town. Very nice place and very clean. Always something to do.

My husband took my two sons here and said it was great! Lots of historical facts and tours and exhibits. My youngest said the sub was pretty tight spaces but very interesting. Reasonable fees. I have claustrophobia so spent my time at Walden Galleria Mall instead :)

A great family destination. Kids can have fun exploring three Naval vessels while learning at the same time. Plus great views of the harbor.

We went on our first day in Buffalo. There were several things happening. Yoga in the park, boat rides, all kinds of water rides, food stands, and the military ships exhibits. It's located in the downtown section of Buffalo but quite easy to find. There are bicycle trails and walking trails, and a coast guard station. The only down side... More

All three vessels for one price; military are free. Lots of history, and great detail. Vessels are in need of repair, but still we'll worth the visit.

Actually went twice two weeks apart taking two sets of grandkids. Everyone had a great time and I would recommend this! By the way, Grandkids ranged in age from 4 to 9.

This is truly a hands on experience, we told our 13 yr old grandson and he loved it as did we. seeing how these men lived and worked on these ships and the tight quarters was truly amazing. How five brothers gave their lives in defense of our country was inspiring..you won't go wrong with a visit here.
