In this Wax Museum it had information I iknew and a lot I didn't know. I had no idea about the woman who went over the falls and made it back safely. I also learned about other people who went over the falls, some who made it back and others who didn't.

Niagara Wax Museum was a great display of American history. Lots of history about the falls and people who have gone over the falls in the old days.

I loved this museum! We were there alone and we had a lot of fun playing around making jokes taking photos lol! I like the way that they made the museum and the price is great! 7$ for adult. I recommend it!

We were the only people there that day and it's $7.00 a piece to enter. TV's that explain events were staticky and difficult to understand

It was a fun little museum. Wax figures were scary looking but very educational. No air conditioning and it was sooo hot. Would have been more enjoyable if I was anxious to get out of the heat

you have to take this place for what it is - a roadside attraction. The kids and I were cracking up. It is old and creepy and incredibly dirty but it we will never forget it.
