This is a hold-over from the old days of Niagara Falls (pre casinos). Tells local history, but also is kitschy enough to be great fun. Nowhere else will you see a display with Princess Diana, Mother Theresa and Julia Roberts together. Also has Mark Twain and Abe Lincoln along with history of the falls and more. For the couple of...

They have a lot history about Niagara Falls and United State to learn, about the indians, the power water they show a movie and we can take a lot pictures

A must for family fun. Take lots of pictures with the stars, past & present. I must say not all the wax works looked like the person.

So it's not super state-of-the-art--this is still a very informative museum! It's huge inside. It helps too that I'm a sucker for wax museums--everything is more interesting when illustrated with weird, not-actually-very-lifelike figures.

Really loved all the wax figures, some were so realistic it was scary! The Ozzie stature was really neat! The joker was so realistic that I thought it was a person wearing the outfit!

I don't think even Mark Twain's words could do justice to the EXPERIENCE that is visiting the Niagara Wax Museum of History. It's like a time capsule of a really cool museum that was built 40 years ago, and the owners just wiped their hands, said "welp, we did it," and never once looked back. Visiting here is like going...

I enjoyed learning about the history of the falls. The wax figures made it a little eerie like walking through a haunted house, but educational none the less. My son was hoping for a bit more excitement but he still learned a few things.

Some of the wax figures are just ok.. I believe their clothes dont fit them very good... but the history in this place makes up for all of it.. they have a range of historical facts... one that interested me was when Niagra Falls stopped completely for 30hrs in the 1800's.. as people thought it was the end of the...
