There was a lot of effort put into this little museum. The museum is definitely dated, but some of the models are well done. The wax figures are sad but there's a lot of content. The ticket price is fair for what you get. This would be a good activity to do if its raining.

This place looks like it hasn't been touched or updated since the 70's. It was only $6USD per person, so I didn't feel cheated, but it would be nice to see that place renovated. On the plus side they had a lot of information!

Was very pleased at the price to enter a wax museum for a family of 4. After 1/2 way through it then hit us why it was so inexpensive. The wax figure were old and run down. Nothing modern that kids under 13 would of even known. They were bored and uninterested. Not worth the time or $

In this Wax Museum it had information I iknew and a lot I didn't know. I had no idea about the woman who went over the falls and made it back safely. I also learned about other people who went over the falls, some who made it back and others who didn't.

It was so hard to get past the smell. It was a small wax museum of the timeline of the Falls. It really only took us about 20 mins complete the museum. Maybe it was because of the smell?

This was a great history lesson for hubby and I, our younger kids and teenager who actually all enjoyed it. This was the missing piece answering all our questions about the local history of Niagara Falls and even had a lot of humor interspersed between the facts. This was also the only attraction that felt long enough compared to many... More

The exhibits are fantastic as well as the history you will enjoy. As with most attraction in the area there is a fee but not too bad and a good rainy day killer. Have fun
