Such an amazing piece of History!

A must see if you're in the downtown Buffalo area. My kids enjoyed it all from ages 3 to 12. First time I've ever toured a submarine. It paid tribute to all armed services.

Well worth the entrance fee. This self-guided tour of three Navy vessels is fantastic. We visited on the same weekend at the USS Little Rock reunion so it was pretty busy. We were able to talk to a few of the veterans. Great stories. The USS Little Rock has several mini museums inside of it.

It was a lot of walking. I have been to other military parks, and I can say these ships are the most comfortable to walk on/through. And the staff was amazing. I have a hard time with enclosed spaces, and the staff was very understanding and accommodating when I needed alternate routes.

Alot too see and do. The ship's history is interesting, the story about the Sullivan family is very emotional.the submarine and aircraft add to the overall experience. The monument layout takes you to all the different wars and conflicts. Beautiful view of the lake,take a walk around the marinara. A nice museum. Easy parking and good places to eat nearby.

I love walking through here to and from any activities Canalside, but I have never paid for any of the attractions, so I can't speak to them. More and more monuments are added each year and the grounds are usually kept up well.

The museum is so so, but kids will love the two ships and submarine. A lot of walking, sweating and narrow stairs up and down on the ships. No easy way out if you get tired. You need at least 3 hours to explore the 3 ships even briefly.

We spent the whole day here at the waterfront area. The Naval Park was very well done and the self guided tour easy to follow. It gives one new respect for our sailors who lived and worked in such close quarters. The submarine was amazing too. Note: parts of the tour may require steep narrow stairs between decks. The submarine... More

The naval and military park is a very pretty spot in Buffalo and a must do if you visit. On Beautiful Lake Erie. Lovely park with gardens and flags a fluttering. An honorable tribute to the navy, airforce and ground forces who fought in all the wars. It is difficult to get to the waterfront but well worth a couple... More

It was very cool to see a part of American history in one location. Also, the scenery was amazing. All for $10 per person it was a hit. Great place to kill 2-3 hours.
