We are science museum groupies. I can't say when I've ever been to a science museum that excited my imagination as much as this one. The enthusiasm of the famous physicist whose concept is reflected here is beyond measure, geared toward the youth, the generation who may save America even yet. Support this effort, for all our sakes.

MissLaura: It was so shocking: I opened casually your review and boom: a very generous and much beyond expectation encouragement. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your appreciation will keep me going in the months ahead. With gratitude, Nick More

Almost, the curator looks like him and the girls loved his accent and the artifacts and the gems and the solar panels and the ancient microscopes and tele comunications and the gift shop and all of it. Right here in their home town, it was a great visit and we will be back.

If you are interested in the history of scence you've gotta check this out. Microscopes, lab static electricity generators, ga;vanometers, really strange medical equipment, barometers, a printing press and much, much more. If you are lucky, Nick - the collector - will explain how that instrument operates and how it is related to others on display.

An interesting museum to visit while at Niagara. It's very much worth a detour if you have some interest in science. The owner/curator, Mr. Nick Dalacu, does a great job of communicating his interest and knowledge, especially to students. Highly recommended.

I think a person is lucky if once in his lifetime he has a teacher who is truly passionate about the subject he teaches. If you are a person who has never had that privilege, then now is your chance. Nick Dalacu, the curator of the Niagara Science Museum, is humble but sharp as a tack. He knows how to... More

First of all--science was my worst subject. I decided on this side trip because my wife is a bit of a science nerd, and the reviews were outstanding. At the end, my wife had to drag me out of there. If she didn't, I'd still be there listening to the Museums curator, Nick, and I'm sure he'd still be there... More

Me and my wife visited Nick and his museum during our stay in niagara falls, and we were blown away. He has some of the most amazing scientific tools on display there, and delights in showing them to guests. He answered all of our questions so thoroughly that I had a hard time keeping up with his knowledge of physics.... More

I was in Niagara Falls, NY recently on business and had the joy of discovering a hidden gem. The Niagara Science Museum isn’t full of neon signs or flashing lights – at least not until the curator begins the high voltage demonstrations; it is full of fabulous antiques and gadgets and gizmos that make a physics geek like me all...

I was delighted to find one true museum,The Niagara Science Museum .It is off the beaten path away from the tourist area but trust me,it is worth the drive.
