I've been to several wax museums and expected a few more wax figures than this museum has. Many of the exhibits featured local history, though I noticed one, I believe, bit of misinformation. I enjoyed reading some of the articles and looking at the photographs hanging on the walls. We used an Entertainment Book coupun so only paid $3.50 each.

We made a one day trip to Niagara so our two kids, ages 11 and 12, could see the amazing falls. We had hoped to make this one of our stops, but it is closed and for sale. It might be a great place if it was open.

The one on the New York side is closed. Canada has one though. Don't waste your time looking for this place.

Very cool and interesting to learn the history of the falls daredevils. To see their inventions and see the courage it took for them to go over the falls.

There is a for sale sign on the building and we were told by a local business owner that it officially closed the week before. There is however a daredevil museum on the canadian side... More

This museum is located alongside the Imax movie. Those movies make me ill so we skipped that and just visited the museum.

The Daredevils Museum looked mostly like a newspaperkiosk from outside. I was at Niagara Falls for two days. The first day I tried to get in at 12 oclock, the next at ten oclock. Both days it was closed, though not announced closede.
