Since opening to the public in 1979, Buffalo & Erie County Naval & Military Park has worked to foster an appreciation for the U.S. Armed Forces. Always an inspiration to citizens, the park features frequent events including demonstrations, festivals, dedications, challenges, celebrations, ceremonies and more, including overnight stays on actual naval vessels. Beyond the museum and outside exhibits, the park also offers a gift shop stocked with items to commemorate your visit. Memberships are available. Visit at 1 Naval Park Cove in Buffalo.
