Who doesn't love N.Tesla?! He harnessed the power of the falls and you can still see the 1st hydropower plants while viewing the falls themselves. Like I say in all my NF reviews... if you plan on spending the night, plan ahead. Either way, drive 15xtra min to Buffalo/Cheektowaga for a much better hotel at the same price. ALL the... More

Take an hour out of your day and check out this museum. Although not a huge venue, the history is plentiful and you will respect what has occurred over the years and how the falls have evolved.

We visited in mid June and as we arrived caught Nick leaving the museum. He informed us sadly that the state has closed down the place. Not to disappoint the kids, he gave us a short tour anyway. It's very sad to the place go.

After reading the other reviews on this place on here I decided to make this one of the stops of our vacation trip. Having a husband and 2 sons that are into this kind of stuff I thought it would be a perfect stop. I got the hours of operation off the website and we headed out. Unfortunately, it wasn't... More

(Visited 21 Sept 2013) This science museum is probably unparalleled with any science museum in the world. The curator takes the time to spend with each visitor, understanding their interest in science and focusing in on it. He is very interactive. He has acquired devices such rarities as an transmission electron microscope and scanning electronic microscope. He can demonstrate Tesla's... More

I'm a science major, and this museum was fascinating, there's so much history that you wouldn't think to put in a museum. This guy definitely knows what he's talking about too; I think he could talk about anything in that place for hours. It's also not a conventional, scripted museum experience where the guides just memorize facts, it's real.

I remember this visit well. That day, families came in one after another; always a kid or two. I was in the middle of a gout attack and hurting like hell. But as always happens to me when I have a receptive audience, I forgot about pain and start preaching science. I realized that the young lady is a scientist,... More
