The Niagara Daredevil Exhibit is conveniently located next to the Niagara IMAX Theatre. Enter and see and touch the actual barrels that challenged the Falls!

I went here because I had discount tickets. Even with the discount I felt cheated. There is also an IMAX movie about the Falls that was done by National Geographic. Interesting but not worth the price of admission.

You ask yourself why the “daredevils” do it. Simple - because it is there. A very interesting collection of the vessels daredevils have used to transport themselves over the falls.

Amazing facts and information about the daredevils of Niagara Falls. Wow, unbelievable that someone would risk their life for a stunt! Interesting stories about those who survived and those who perished. Overall worth the time to watch the IMAX show. May be a bit frightening...More

Saw this museum on the tv show Mysteries At The Museum. Wanted to see it for myself and was not disappointed. Located in the IMAX building. Free parking the day I was there.

Yes, you can see the museum separately. The movie does give you a good background of the pieces in the museum though.
