Sorry, but this attraction is not very interesting. I feel like it is just a made up attraction as a way to get you to buy the discovery pass. It was very small with few rock related exhibits. It's main purpose was to serve as...More

Honestly this whole area needs to be redeveloped walking in this place and the aquarium it’s like I’m in the 80’s. Place is tiny and the show they present is a history channel documentary nothing special that you couldn’t see at home.

As far as museums go, it's very small. The building is rounded, like a gazeebo & you start right & work your way around. The center gives you some focused history about the falls, focusing mostly on rocks & a little about fossils. There are...More

I'm so glad we stopped here. We learned all about the geology and the ever changing nature of the falls. Also the history of the falls. People used to slide down the frozen hills at the base in winter. However they were not solid and......More

Quite a small museum, we didn't spend much time there because we came by closing and we just had time to watch a 10 mins movie. The rest might be interesting for kids: interactive expositions, history and geological samples. It was part of Discovery Pass,...More
