  • Excellent history of the War of 1812 and some history of the Falls themselves. Also has a great, ever-changing program of local-oriented events (from yoga to film nights).
  • Great place to visit, very informative, clean location
  • Interesting place. Very nice and small but it has very limited exhibition
  • Cool Museum - wish we had more time to spend here. - Rick Trus review
  • Great museum to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the Falls! A must see for history buffs or anyone interested in how Niagara Falls arrived at where it is now! Go check it out and be pleasantly surprised!
