A real unusual museum

This is quite an unusual museum, it consists of many boats and a submarine. They all have quite a lot of history. Quite impressive! These war ships look like brand new, until you visit the inside. It’s fun though to walk up to the top of the ship. Their weapons still seem intimidating! The bridge had lots of room and... More

The Buffalo & Erie County Naval and Military Park offers a fantastic chance for residents and visitors to our area to tour several naval ships that helped protect our borders during WWII. There are many other wartime displays and monuments that document the service of many veterans that served and protected us during wartime.

Recommend good walking shoes, comfortable clothes such as shorts on a hot day. The docents really know their stuff and well they should since they are all vets.

Visit an exceptional site in downtown Buffalo. You will see how many of the military in several wars served their country. World War II, Korean Conflict, war in Vietnam, are all addressed. Other conflicts are treated with models and dioramas. Well worth the admission price. Some of the ship models were built by a world class model builder.

Love the Canalside with this piece of history stationed right at the harbor. Terrific choice for children to visit.

Lots of fun exploring the ships. They say they are haunted, and it does feel spooky on it. It's right on Lake Erie and next to Canalfest, the new area they made up real nice. Also is the marina which is where I go for beautiful sunsets. Nothing more relaxing than sitting there watching the day end and the night... More

We have made a number of visits to Buffalo & Erie County Naval and Military Park. The park is in a beautiful setting adjacent to the Buffalo Waterfront's Canal Side attractions. There are very educational tours through the USS Sullivans and the submaraine USS Croaker and the Naval Park museum building has many interesting items on display. A trip to... More

Sometimes it's nice feeling like you are free to explore, like learning is a big adventure. There are so many different rooms for different purposes, it's truly amazing. Mind, I wouldn't like to get lost on either boat. Not that you would because there are signs and arrows everywhere for you to follow. It's well thought out and there's more... More

I took my nephew when he was in town visiting. He is a military and history fanatic. It was a great sunny day in Buffalo and was well worth the price. You are pretty much on your own to walk around the various ships and some of the displays look rather dated and fading, however if you are not opposed... More

While in Buffalo NY this is a must. It is a great piece of history, and the war POW and MIA is very touching.
