  • Excellent facility, a Buffalo treasure, a must visit for adults and children, this was probably my fifth visit.  more »
  • Buffalo has the only naval park of this kind in the Great Lakes. The park has two ships and a submarine. An excellent family adventure. Parking is no problem. A wonderful place to visit and remember.....  more »

  • Arguably the most interesting site to visit while in Buffalo. The Naval & Military park is located right by the entrance of the Buffalo River and is home to 2 naval ships, 1 submarine, and a few other military items. You can pay a small fee to get onto the actual ships and submarine, and it's definitely a great sight to see if you've never been on an actual military ship before (be warned, some spaces can be quite tight). Otherwise, the park itself is completely free to visit and plenty of good photo opportunities with the giants ships in the background. Street parking is available, but more likely to be found by the couple of paid lots near the marina.
  • I have visited many Naval museums and toured different ships before, including the Might Mo in Pearl Harbor and this was one of my favorite tours. The museum was small and not all the lights were on. It left a lot to be desired there. But the purpose of the tour was the ships: the destroyer, carrier, and submarine. They recently moved to a self paced headphone tour. Unfortunately they were malfunctioning just a little (and we let them know that. That's when they told us it was a newer feature and they were still working out the kinks). The ships themselves were fantastic. Even my 6 year old son said it was his entire favorite part of our Buffalo NY trip. We were there from when they opened (around 10 am) until 2:30. Check Groupon because we got a great deal and it was absolutely amazing.
