  • Interesting history. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This would be somewhat difficult for handicapped as you tour three Naval vessels and the halls are narrow and lots of steep steps.  more »

  • This was a great place to visit while in Buffalo. I found that there are quite a few things to do in the city but this was one of the best and if you have the time, it will kill a good 2 to 3 hours if you want to. It can also go as fast as 1 hour if you intend to rush but I would suggest taking the time to read the wall information plates as they provide very interesting facts about the ships, their history and the crew. Outside of this park is a great riverside walkway full of stores and weekend activities (check the city calendar first) for all of the family. In terms of price, it was reasonable but also keep in mind that the ships and sub must be maintained as well! Great experience.
  • Amazing opportunity to tour two great ships and a submarine. There is so much history to discover and remnants that are unique to these ships, including very rare (or only remaining displays of) ship's guns, missiles, launchers, and systems. The USS Sullivans has paid tribute to the heroic five brothers since 1943 - and should do so in perpetuity. The USS Little Rock (after a 1950's conversion) was a flagship that merged a remaining triple 6-inch guns with what were then state-of-the-art Talos guided missiles (and two associated massive radars for guidance). There are plenty of plaques, videos, and staff to answer questions and provide context. The museum also hosts overnight stays for Scouts right on the ship!
  • Amazing place to go, the whole family enjoys going. Everything is kept in amazing condition. The staff are friendly and fun people who know what they're doing. Would absolutely recommend to anyone.
  • My grandfather is a plank owner and served on the Little Rock, so this place has special meaning to me. It's been a few years since my tour of these vessels now, but I aim to come visit this summer! Awesome place. Take your time here and learn some history! It's worth it.
  • Took my parents here when they visited. They loved it. This place is great for photo ops and great if you're just looking for something to do. I recommend NOT going in the warmer months. With the heat and all the walking you can't be faint of heart!
