We had a wonderful experience at this attraction. The price was so very reasonable and parking was free, right across the street. The exhibits were fantastic, the self guided tour of the two ships and the submarine are taken at your own pace, you can go through as quickly or as slow as you want. You are able to take... More

One of the best collections of retired naval ships I have been to. The three different vessels that included a destroyer, a cruiser, and submarine, make the Buffalo Naval Park a must see destination when in Buffalo, NY. It gives you a true appreciation for those who have served our great country since WWII. A museum which is included will... More

This was truly a site to behold! You were able to tour almost every nook of this magnificent destroyer named for the 5 Sullivan brothers ! If you know the history and even get to see the old movie made in the 1940's about the brothers and the sacrifices they and many others have made and continue to make today... More

The tour consists of a self-guided walk thru three ships, a destroyer, a cruiser, and a submarine, all of WWII vintage. You get to see most of the living and working areas of the destroyer and submarine, but the visit to the cruiser is only a 'walk thru' rooms that have been converted into museums. Essentially, the only 'working' areas... More

Our beautiful Buffalo waterfront is home to the USS Sullivan and the USS Croaker . These two amazing floating pieces of military history are gems of our community. Actually being able to step aboard these magnificent vessels as a tourist should give everyone a thrill. History buffs will have a new respect for the massive size of the Sullivan and... More

We love history! These naval boats are awesome part of American history. The sub is hard to maneuver so if you have difficulty with tight spaces this might not be for you. Loved it! Definitely will Ho again!!!
