Great place to spend an afternoon

Loads to see and do here if you love history. A couple of restaurants for lunch or a drink and great Lake Erie views!

I've been trying to visit here for years! Unfortunately I couldn't stay long enough to soak up the whole experience. But what I was able to see was breathtaking! You never realize how big these ships are until you get up to them!

You could easily spend 4 hours here if you looked at all the displays or, like me, you could skim the exhibits and just enjoy the chance to be aboard and see the ships and submarine which can still take 1-1.5 hours. My kids and I all had a great time!

We loved loved loved this attraction. We would recommend this for all ages. There are some tight places on the ships so if you have any size to you it may be hard to get around. Overall a great attraction

I enjoyed the visit to this site. It was filled with history. I did get tired before we finished the entire tour. Be prepared for lots of steps. Still, completely enjoyable.

This venue consists of 2 naval ships and a submarine which you can tour from bow to stern. Everything is carefully marked so that you can take a self-guided tour at your own pace. Fascinating! There is also a museum to tour in a separate building, which offers a restaurant on the ground floor overlooking the Erie Canal. Food was... More

The museum is great and worth the visit. Overnight encampment is not worth the time or money. The museum offers 3 naval vessels to tour; a sub, a destroyer, and a missile cruiser. The Cruiser is stock full of exhibits....almost to the point of overkill as a lot of the exhibits are just general info that has nothing really to... More

As a naval family we really enjoyed this experience. The park, trees, & flowers were beautiful & the monuments moving. The 3 ships were well preserved & the self guided tours were easy to follow including all parts of the ships & aspects of ship life. The two museums depicted all of the wars up through Vietnam Nam & honored... More

Veterans and non-veterans alike will enjoy everything in the Military park. Everything is so well kept and clean. Much of the work is done by volunteers - giving back and honoring their service. Don't miss this amazing display.
