My hubby always gravitates towards everything historical, mechanical, and/or technological. This exhibit had it all and he wanted to go. Me... not so much. That said, it was a very enjoyable tour, especially for a rainy and overcast day. We toured both the cruiser and the submarine. It was so interesting to see WWII facilities where men ate, slept, worked,... More

Long before the buzz of activity that is now taking place along the Buffalo River front in downtown Buffalo, the Naval and Military Park stood alone as a silent sentry attracting tens of thousands of visitors every year. With the development of the riverfront, the Park has taken on a new, expanded place in the development with a new and... More

Everyone was very nice, well worth the price. They let you view one ship and then you can go eat lunch and come back! Very continent since we have a small child.

Was originally told that this was a Naval Museum and that my father-in-law would enjoy it as he's former Navy. The museum part is not that large and is really only a small part of the park. The exhibits are the major part of the experience. Many stationary examples of the vehicles and munitions used during the wars. The best... More

Great place to visit for all history buffs. Lots of cool memorabilia! You can really spend the day looking at the ship and sub. Plus is right on the water with other things to do. Makes for a great family day out that is cheap.

I found it interesting but I am a fan of history. If you are uncomfortable with close space not a good place.

The Naval & Military Park is 15-20 mins away from my home but I would make the trip even if it were an hour or more away. The park & it's setting are beautiful but there are monuments, a museum,(Civil War & WWI are in the works) the WWI USS Croaker,(submarine) and the two grand ships, USS Little Rock (Missile... More

Aside from steep stairs and some tight walking quarters, this is a must stop trip for people of all ages. Ships are well maintained and self guided tour is reasonably priced.

We really enjoyed our family time! It's interesting place to show kids the history of Second World War period there they can touch everything, climb, try them self in different play roles even try some soldiers forms on. Our kids were surprised to discover the habitat of naval soldiers, their live, their heroism. I recommend this place of everyone who... More

My grandfather was in the navy during World War II. I have always wanted to tour a ship. I was able to tour 3 of them, one was a sub. The cost was $12 for adults, $6 for ages 6-16 and senior is $8. To me well worth the cost. We went on a Wednesday so it was only open... More
