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

We had an amazing time visiting this site. Even my girlfriend who is usually not a military enthusiast enjoyed her visit. We were greeted on the ships by two very friendly Navy vets. It was good to have a talk with guys who actually served on similar ships than the ones we were about to visit. It took us about... More

We decided to make this a stop on our way home from Niagara Falls. There are 2 ships and a submarine to tour. The Navel ships are really cool to go through, the first one especially. The second ship is more a museum but was still fairly interesting. Probably would have been of more interest to us had we been... More

We attended a concert there with the Grandsons. A tribute to "Earth, Wind, & Fire". Great night to wander among the Navel ships, the Submarine, and the different machines like Airplanes, and tanks. Beautiful weather for Ice Cream because the new restaurants are open. You can sit in a restaurant, or in one of the colorful chairs all over the... More
