We went to the gift shop first looking for gifts for our kids. Since we had some extra time we decided to walk through the ships. Both were very interesting and we wished we had more time to walk through the submarine. Hopefully we will be able to visit again in the future.

It's very interesting to be in these historic ships, also, you can learn a lot, you can see torpedos and missiles in the surrounding area.

This is pretty cool. There is a lot of history packed into this museum and ships. You are able to go down into the ships and sub and a get a true appreciation for what our men and women troops go through to protect this great country. The self guided tour is pretty good. We easily spent 3 1/2 hours... More

We have had the opportunity to visit several naval ship museums. However, this one had 3 separate ships that were part of one tour. It was excellent to be able to see so many parts of the ship - all at our own pace. Love the way these ships were made available - just wish we had more time. We... More

This is a great way to spend an afternoon in Buffalo. Parking was relatively easy and you can enjoy the waterfront and Canalside. We ate lunch nearby and then boarded the ships and submarine. Very cool and the docents were really nice too. Be aware that there are steep steps to climb up and down and the submarine will require... More

A stop on our road trip and it was wonderful. Very educational and interesting. Plan on being a couple hours to really enjoy each museum. Very rich in history and was fun for everyone in the family.

This museum is by far one of the finest museums Buffalo has to offer. The Sullivan's and the Little Rock both are beautifully maintained, preserved with history. From scullery to missile launch to the tiniest of barber shops, it sure was quite intriguing. Quite a fun workout. We took about 3 hours to finish. Must visit.

Who knew downtown Buffalo was so cool? The ships in the River were amazing and quite a few of them too. The surrounding parks were clean and had many activities
