“Wonderful place to see Naval history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

If you've never spent time on a US Navy ship, (or even if you have), the Naval park in Buffalo is a wonderful place to visit. Located right downtown along the waterfront, this attraction offers three very different classes of Navy ships among the displays; a cruiser, a destroyer, and a submarine. It is a wonderful, static display of these historic vessels, which are open to the public for a very reasonable fee ($10.00). The tours allow you to view almost everything, and the guides are there to answer your questions. Make sure to leave enough time (several hours) to see it all.

“Great family trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

My wife 6,8,19 yr olds and myself went to the park today and all thought everything was really cool. Fun for all ages and educational at the same time! Would definitely recommend checking this place out.

“Military Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

This is a fantastic place to visit. Make sure you allot about 3-4 hours when visiting, because it is very informative and entertaining. Going through the ships and sub was fantastic. Tall people should be careful in the sub. The doors are really small.
