  • Included in the discovery pass. If you really have time to kill, come there, if not go your way. Dissemination of a film with no interest and a few boards on the niagara falls.

  • Very neat to see the history! The people working here were very nice. Some updates would really make this place a five star attraction. The gorge was awesome. I loved going down the elevator and seeing it all.
  • Way outdated and not much to see. Some cool facts and history, but not worth the stop. There is great potential with all the amazing history, but lack of care.
  • The best part is the self guided tour of the gorge, very cool and free. The Discovery Center is fine for $3 but there isn't much there.
  • Most of the interactive exhibits in the centre were not working. A documentary is shown on a very small screen by a DVD player.
  • Somewhat dated, but the displays were informative, covering the major historical themes of Niagara including power generation and local geology. The depth of information was pretty limited, aimed perhaps at a middle school level. The short (20 min) History Channel produced film was informative regarding development of the area as a tourist attraction over the last few hundred years. Some of the interactive displays were broken when we visited, and the parking lot was completely closed for construction (park at the aquarium and walk over), which also greatly limited the outdoor access around the facility.
