I enjoyed it

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... read more

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...

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...

Niagara Wax Museum of History is located at 303 Prospect St., Niagara Falls, end of Rainbow Bridge next to the Hard Rock Cafe.. This is not a worth visit. The quality of the figures is not good. As this was nearer to the Hotel, where we stayed, we just walked into the Museum. The entry fee is $10. Though there... More

This wax museum is by the Hard Rock on Prospect - it just has a sign that reads WAX MUSEUM above the windows. It looks like a place you'd just skip - don't skip this one. It is so much more than just a wax museum. It was so cool inside - so many interesting facts about the Falls, history... More

Niagara wax museum of history is definitely that: all about the history of the Falls. If your looking for some updated modern place then thats not history. This place is worth every penny and will visit it again with my grandkids. I noticed on here that some of the reviews are not even for the Niagara Wax museum of History... More
