Great day spent here with our family and grandchildren The historic elements were very well detailed , the admission cost fair, the ships and planes very well maintained, the guides excellent and over all a great compliment to the Canal-side experience. As a veteran, the whole trip was moving for me and the grand kids enjoyed going in the submarine... More

I have been to several exhibits that are similar to this one but few have had 3 vessels that were able to be toured. All were well maintained and very informative, the park itself was very nice

We enjoyed our visit to both locations. Parking is a challenge, but there are plenty of activities to keep younger children occupied.

I like museums: if they feature machinery, that's good. And if it's military equipment, so much the better. The Naval and Military Park in Buffalo satisfies those requirements, and does so for about the price of a movie ticket. This has to be one of the best museum values in the land. For your $12 adult admission, you gain access... More

We were visiting Buffalo for the first time in 60 years, and my cousin wanted to show us how the waterfront was being redeveloped. I had never really thought of Buffalo as a port...but it certainly was! He drove us down to the water front and we walked up to the Naval Museum. There is a submarine, destroyer, cruiser that...

The Naval Museum provides a great deal of educational information to the history buffs. Very informative! I enjoyed touring the naval ships to see how the sailors lived and worked.

You can take self-guided tours of the ships. The route is easy to follow, and there are informational tidbits along the way. Important note: There are a couple steep climbs on narrow ladders so this may not be for everyone.

My husband being a Navy man was pretty excited to see this when we arrived in downtown Buffalo. Although we were too late to take a tour on board the ships, they were docked close enough to get some good pictures and were able to see quite a bit. It was a nice moderate walking tour that we enjoyed.
