A great place to introduce your children to the strength and legacy to America's Armed Forces. Tour the USS Sullivan, The Croaker and visit each monument that documents our participation in all wars, past and present. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, the park is serene and peaceful. Take time to sit and relax and pay homage to those that made the greatest sacrifice.

I was very pleased to visit this wonderful landmark. The information and the history you receive when you walk on board is amazing.

This is an underappreciated highlight of the Buffalo waterfront that is a very unique experience. If you love military history, this place with be a playground for you ... everyone else, however might get a little fatigued after the umpteenth narrow hallway to squeeze through or steep ladder to climb up.
I mean, it's three ships tethered together, so it takes a while to get though it all. It's almost overwhelming, all of the exhibits and other stuff to view. Plus, while they do a good job of pumping AC in as much as possible, it can get hot and stuffy below decks in certain areas.
Overall a great value on a good experience.

My wife and I spent a couple of hours walking all of the tours of both ships and the sub. Several great videos onboard and lots of historical information and memorabilia.

We were in Buffalo because my husband worked in the area a few times and wanted to go to this museum. It took a couple hours to go through for us. It does have bathroom about in the middle of the walking tour (which you go thru at your own speed). There is a small store and restaurant at the entrance. The museum is upstairs and the rest is outside.
There is a lot of history here and is well displayed. We did go and were sat at the restaurant afterwards because I was starving. He were quickly seated and that was it. We sat and waited and waited while a couple next to us were sat and got water. We left. Just an FYI

But the ships and submarine... Yes, go see. There are some spots that are tight. The submarine is the most enclosed, in case you don't like small spaces you may want to skip that. It's last on the walking tour. Most of the stairs in all of them are also steep and small steps. Enjoy!
