The Naval Park and the entire Buffalo waterfront is an exceptional experience! We also took the river boat history tour of the harbor. There are plenty of restaurants and activities for every age. The waterfront is another wonderful Western New York discovery.

The park consists of four parts - 1. The General information section on the second floor which gives insight to the history of early 19th century when there was serious battles between British & US forces. The minute details of then are described and detailed meticulously. 2. The second one is the tour of the second world war veteran of USS Sullivans. The story of how she got the name is sad. That was incredibly fantastic. The way the old ship is preserved and the access to most of the details of the war ship was very interesting. 3. Tour of USS Little Rock. It is believed that this is the only ship with a guided missile system open for public view. The way everything was managed is well described in the audio provided. History of the second world war is easily understood by the excellent displays. After the visit to USS Sullivans, the ship with the name Little Rock appeared quite large and spacious. The Korean war Museum and the Polish section were unexpected pleasant surprises here. 4. The last one was USS Croaker, a submarine. A very exciting tour which gave a lot of engineering details in an entertaining way. When we came out of the USS Croaker, I was feeling unsatiated after more than two hours of tour since the whole tour was such a wonderful experience making one feel like asking for more. The entrance fee is USD 15 per head but there are serious discounts for veterans, senior citizens (over 65 years) and children. The tour was worth much more than the fee collected.

I made a solo tour of the two ships and sub. It took about two hours. May take longer if you read a lot of the articles and spend more time at each exhibit. Was extremely interesting, having never been on a ship or sub. (I am an Army Vet) They give Veteran and Senior discounts. Enjoyed my tour very much. Would recommend it to any Navy enthusiast,

We stopped here on our way back from Niagara Falls. I am so glad that we did stop. Honestly, I would probably make the 6 hour drive, just to come here. There was a submarine and two destroyers that you cam tour. The volunteers and staff were absolutely amazing and answered any and all questions. You will need about 2.5 to 3 hours to go through all of ships. There's also a very small, but very informative display upstairs of where you buy your tickets. Parking is either in a lot down the road or on the street down the road. I highly suggest visiting this piece of history. You will not be disappointed. As a side note, I suggest wearing sneakers and nothing with open toes as you will be exploring the ships and going up and down ladders and in and out of smaller doors.

Tour the ships, view the aircraft, observe memorials from the Civil War through Afghanistan. Real-life is WAY bigger than the big screen, please take your children (boys AND girls) to see how their freedoms have been earned and defended. A humbling reminder for us adults too, the park celebrates local service members but embodies the patriotic warmth of our nation for those who have, and continue to serve.
