The Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park will reopen on May 1, 2021
Take a self-guided tour of the largest inland Naval Park in the country!
Join us for a self-guided tour of USS The Sullivans, USS Little Rock, USS Croaker, the Museum Building, and Gift Shop. At this time, visitors will be able to visit areas above and below deck, although certain compartments will be closed due to social distancing restrictions. Restrooms will be available in the first floor of the museum building and on board the USS Little Rock, and we encourage guests to maintain physical distancing while accessing them.
Naval Park attendance will be limited to 50 people every half hour for self-guided tours. You may begin your tour at anytime within the 30 minute window listed on your ticket. If you miss your ticket window, we will do our best to accommodate you at a later time, subject to availability. Staff and docents will be available along the tour route to answer questions.
Our operating hours are Wednesday – Sunday from 10 AM – 5 PM. The last guests will be allowed to board at 4 PM, but the tour route will close at 5 PM. Admission will be limited through timed ticketing with advance online purchase. You must follow all posted instructions while visiting the Buffalo Naval Park.
