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

This place was very nice. I found it to be very educational and interesting. The children enjoyed it also.

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

We enjoyed the wax museum. I was a bit hesitant based on some other reviews but I am glad we went. There were some interesting facts about the falls and a portrait hall of presidents. The wax figures are not well crafted but the museum has other things to offer. We went in with an open mind and read the... More

Yes it is a little old and cheesy, but you can't miss it! We had a blast in here. This was one of our favorite things. And, at the end they have an area where you can take your pic so it looks like you are going over the falls in a barrel (priceless) and sitting on a bench in... More

This place is set up directly across the street from the Falls State Park. We saw it & stopped in. It was not previously planned but we did want to see a wax figure museum. This place was very disappointing & a waste of money. Even though it was only $20 for 3 of us, it was not worth $10.... More

Nice and clean museum. It was nice seeing the wax figures portrayed in action scenes, instead of just standing in dead space as with other museums. They had several interesting items including several modes of transportation for going over the falls. This place really has not changed in over 30 years - something I enjoyed. It brought back a lot... More

This place was such a disaponting waste of time! My husband and I didn't plan to go to a museum while visiting the falls, but when I saw a sign for one I was excited. I've been to a few wax museums and they were fun and exciting. This place was a joke! $7 admission, it should be less than... More
