I brought my 12YO and 19YO here and we all enjoyed it much more than I expected. They weren't thrilled when we pulled into the parking lot. Ugh, something educational on vacation mom! But they were soon won over. We spent about 2 hours going through all the new interactive exhibits, all tied into their website where you can download... More

What a fun visit! We were referred by a Helicopter pilot in Niagara. I was doubtful, but my husband was interested do I tagged along. We had such a fun time. There are so many displays and hands on games to play. The views were spectacular. I was so impressed. It's a short car ride to Lewiston but totally worth... More

Try to arrange your vacation to spend some time here. It is well worth the time. Great for families. They have a interesting history section downstairs. The views are incredible. The place is clean and futuristic looking with unique, interactive displays. I was impressed. It amazes me what a herculean effort it was to create this power plant. You can... More

I went with a 12 year old girl....very fun and educational! It was free to get in. Would be especially fun for younger children, but mine enjoyed herself also. Views are spectacular, and there's even an area where you can build and power your own town.

The Niagara Power Project Power Vista museum has always been a fun place to visit, but following an extensive renovation is now an extremely impressive museum of science, engineering, and cultural history of the Niagara region. The NYPA pulled out all the stops on this one...bravo! Worth at least a half day visit.

Brought the grandchildren aged 9 and 6. We stayed nearly two hours and didnt complete all exhibits. The kids loved it, stayed focused and engaged. Had read reviews saying upgrades were needed and was pleasantly surprised that most displays were functional and seemed new. Should mention that the staff were very engaged with visitors, obviously enjoying helping people. Very glad... More

Had been there from a tour company that conducts Niagara Tours- the views from the top were just awesome- the museum itself was very informative & had many displays that explained about Hydro-electric power generation- even though it was bit cold & rainy that day - it was totally worth it- don't miss this on the Niagara trip.

It is breathtaking and captures your imagination as to what mankind can accomplish with the manpower to complete a "vision"!

Right on the Lower Niagara River at Niagara University, the Robert Moses Power Station is a great place to let kids learn about why the water is diverted away from Niagara Falls, USA and Canada.
