My husband and I are in the Buffalo region taking our grandson to visit colleges. While here we couldn't miss the opportunity to go to Niagara Falls. One memory I had from my last visit in the 1970's was going to a wax museum. So we decided to check out the Niagara Wax Museum of History. Going into this museum... More

We arrived in Niagara around 4:30 & due to the time most the things we wanted to do were closed for the day . We saw this down from the Hard Rock and decided to check it out . I think it was 7 dollars each and while some of the displays were a little dated the articles they had... More

The wax museums are fun. Don't ruin it for kids by pointing out the outdated stuff. If your doing a day of museums, don't miss the science museum and aquarium.

I found this wax museum to be pretty interesting. You are not just looking at wax figures. You are learning about Niagara Falls history and historical figures. There is even a daredevil section. That was probably my favorite part of the museum. There are some great photo opps in this museum so make sure you bring your camera.

This was just okay, but it was a fun way to get out of the rain. We got some really funny pictures. We made the best of it.

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...

While waiting to check into our hotel we saw the Wax Museum and thought we would give it a go. It's cheap to get in and had some interesting displays. Would have been better with more 'celebrity waxes'
