We were pleasantly surprised by the exhibits and displays at the visitors center. The kids, aged 9-13, did the 4D experience three times. The were issued badges which activated many of the exhibits to be interactive and then allowed to keep them afterwards.

I completely underestimated this place. It’s wonderful and FREE! I think we actually liked it as much or more than the kids. The ID badges were cute but didn’t work well for us. It is educational and fun. Take the 4D Ride! It’s a great place to start out your trip in Niagara

This is a hidden gem for sure! Admission is free and it is full of interactive exhibits and fun games! When you enter, you go to the front desk and you receive a really cool power plant badge. It's got a microchip in it and is what actually makes you able to interact with the exhibits and with the games. There are stations just off to the right of the desk that you take your badge over to, to activate them. You have the option of taking a picture of yourself that will represent you when you use your badge to active the games or you can pick an avatar to represent you. Then you merely swipe your badge over the clearly marked spot and it turns on the game or interactive screen for you to use. You gather points for each time you swipe your badge at a new station...at the end of your experience, you swipe your badge at the station and it informs you if you missed any stations and how many points you've accumulated. You can print out a certificate that shows your points and also prints a sticker of which avatar you decided to represent you. Also, you're given websites you can bring up later on and further use your badge to interact. The exhibits themselves are incredibly informative and so much fun! I was actually surprised by how much fun I had as an adult! I thought it would be geared towards children, but it good family fun!

I did not expect this to be as entertianing as it was. I thought I would be walking out on a deck and looking at a Hydro electric plant. I was mistaken the visitors center has a great view and boats a bevy of interactive displays that are pure fun for Adults and children I am so glad we took the time to s stop

This is a fun stop when you are in town to see the falls as a tourist, coming to visit your child at Niagara University or if you a re a local looking to do something close to home. So let me tell you THIS IS FREE !!!, yes really free, free to park, free to get in. The only down fall is there is no food except for some snack vending machines. Go have fun and lean about how the Hydo power project was built.

I will start by saying that I am an energy geek, but even if you know nothing about hydroelectric power you will find something here to interest you.

While I was blown away by the natural beauty of the Falls, I found the tourist activities in the area uninteresting. I was craving information on the history of the area and the impact of the Falls on the surrounding communities.

So we took s ride up the river to tour the newly updated Niagara Power Vista. It has displays on history, interactive educational displays on energy and outstanding films. The views are also spectacular. And it was great to get away from the crowds.

The Niagara Power Plant visitor center is a wonderful place for small children and adults to spend about 1.5 hours. The staff is eager to help and courteous. It is basically a science museum, but with beautiful views and for free. The exhibits seemed all very new. It is educational, so some may find it boring, but it is done very nicely and all very interactive. The 2 minutes simulator movie was nice for the kids. Definitely worth a stop when in the neighborhood, certainly on a rainy day!

We were visiting on a Friday with all the local elementary kids which did not add to our visit. Luckily they were called to lunch and our visit got a lot better! There are different stations to get photos and other hands on activities including a simulation ride. Geared for those of all ages it was very informative and interactive. This was FREE tour!

Extra helpful staff, great exhibits. This far surpassed our expectations. If your family is competitive they’ll love this museum.
