Good history lesson

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

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!

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.

It does not take too long to visit the whole museum but it's worth the money! especially if you like details you can find a lot interesting things and it will take you longer

There maybe some trivia associated with this museum but overall presentation is poorly curated. Some authentic memorablia can be found associated with the history of Niagara and likewise to the stunts attempted in the past to cross and ump using steel balls, but still the place seemed lacking....

My husband and I are in the Buffalo region taking our grandson to visit colleges. While here we couldn't miss the opportunity to go to Niagara Falls. One memory I had from my last visit in the 1970's was going to a wax museum. So we decided to check out the Niagara Wax Museum of History. Going into this museum... More
