Museum was closed for winter, but just looking at what they have is amazing. We'll be back once they reopen after the thaw. If you still want to look, there's a neat bar - Liberty Call that is worth a visit.

Visit Buffalo's Naval and Military Park on Buffalo's fantastic waterfront. This attraction is both educational and fun for all ages. The site consists of 2 battleships and a submarine to tour and a museum of various artifacts and other transportation vessels. All proceeds help benefit the restoration of these warships as the crew are former members of the military and... More

I've been to this park many, many times and every time I go, I always find something new. All three Ships are very nice to walk aboard and read the things they have done for our military.

They have an excellent outdoor exhibit, a mini-museum and a regular museum... and that's before you get to the three retired craft to explore! Give it a full day and plenty of time otherwise you'll miss some of it

This attraction has grown tremendously over the years and has added tributes to veterans of our wars and conflicts. One of the few places you can walk aboard a sub a destroyer and a battleship. Very affordable as well. Lots of history.

This was a great experience - much larger and more to see than what I thought. We took our three daughters aged 10, 13 and 15 and they all enjoyed it. Good history lesson!

Was very interesting but we couldn't complete going through the ships as it got too cold. But what we did see gave you a good reminder of what people in the army go through. Once you step on the ship you can try to relive how they did during the war and see the conditions they lived in, slept in... More

We are very proud of our naval,park a... More

This place is really cool, you get to tour the ship by your self. Its really awesome if you have a military family member who can relate. We went with our 3 kids. My husband got in free for being prior military. There is a lot of walking and climbing so if you are disabled it might not be for... More
