The Naval park is a great reminder of the struggles of war and the heroic efforts of the US military. The park has 3 war ships docked in close proximity. There is a World War II era vessel USS Sullivans that has been restored beautifully. It is possible to see the change in living conditions between the World War era and the 1970s, when the USS Little Rock was still in operation. There is also a submarine stationed here where you can get a firsthand look at how the naval officers stayed for days together under water. There are a number of mini exhibitions within the ships where details of various groundbreaking wars unfold in front of your eyes with the help of documents and audio-visual presentations.

Excellent experience. Kids loved it! This great historical park pays homage to the great warships of our US Navy. Friendly staff (veterans) and full of knowledge. Multiple ships to explore every inch of as well as a submarine. Very well maintained and very informative. We learned a lot and want to come back again. Lots of walking, climbing, steep stairways and tight spaces. Recommended to all!!!
Growing up in Buffalo I had always heard of the Naval Park, but never visited until this past weekend. It was a wonderful experience. Walking through the two ships and submarine were quite something. It took a few hours to cover all the ground and we could have easily spent more time. Definitely recommend.
This is a must see for Naval and military fans! There is a museum, gift shop, restaurant and tours. The museum has planes, boats, tanks, etc. The must see part is the trio of vessels moored together along the walkway by the water. For a very reasonable fee you can board and tour a destroyer, a guided missile cruiser and a submarine, all decommissioned but well maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers. I prefer the self guided tour but you can have one of the volunteers take you through and get a ton of great information and stories. Take as long as you want but be aware that there are many tight spaces and lots of stairs.
I'm retired Navy living in the Virginia Beach area. Every time we go to Buffalo we always visit the Buffalo Naval Park. Looking at the USS Little Rock brings back old memories when I was on the USS Seattle we would refuel the USS Little Rock at sea. It's a nice small park to enjoy.
Amazing attraction with lots of history to learn. I was surprised at the amount of things to see! You get to go on two battleships and on a submarine. They also have a museum area and their own seafood restaurant that smelled amazing. The tours are self guided with lines to follow so you can go at your own pace and not get lost. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. There are several sets of ladders you must go up and down so not advisable for people who have difficulty with ladders.
