Ok, I have an undisputed bias - I’m a (Westpac) Navy Veteran. Of the two ships - the destroyer (named for the Sullivan brothers who died together while at sea during WWII, may they rest in honored peace) predates my experience in the early 1970’s; while the light cruiser - as it carried missiles - represents an entirely different genre of ships than the old “amphibious boats” I served on. But you get the idea. My family (ages two and up!) loved crawling around these “old beauties,” and dare I say, gained some perspective on Dad’s old “war stories.” They kept asking me questions anyway. The folks there do a very nice job with their displays. If you’re in downtown Buffalo - take a walk over towards the lake and visit these iconic American vessels. Anchors away!

Was here for a ceremony for the sub's 75th anniversary of it's christening, a very moving event. A full tour by one of the docents was just amazing. The various rooms and inside locations are full of original items just as they would have been in WWII. Great restaurant, Liberty Hound, within the building, also wonderful. Walk right inside history at this waterside museum & park.

In addition to being a great place to walk and explore this is a great bit of military history,
Honoring the military service women and men.
You will enjoy a visit to this park, exploring the monuments, the artifacts, and the ships.

Having an opportunity to visit these ships was fantastic. The Veterans on board were great and offered insights and stories. A great way to see and understand some of our naval history.

Great place To visit. They offer a reduced entrance for veterans and seniors. Not for the unsteady on their feet going on and off the ships and through very narrow passageways requires good balance . An Easily spend a few hours here and they also have a small museum.
