Took Grandsons to visit the Brig Niagara. I thoroughly enjoyed the museum and history but it could use more activities for small children. It also included a tour on the Niagara when in port however with a 3 year old, the tour was over in...More
This museum is really interesting. It tells the tale of the war of 1812 and how the Americans won control over the lake from the British. Included in the museum admission is a tour of the flagship brig Niagara.

Very nice displays of articles and equipment. Inside and outside viewing areas of the actual rigged ships in dock. Was able to watch how the crew worked to prepare for departure. Handicap accessible also.

The tour of the brig Niagara provides a fascinating insight into Commodore Perry and the decisive naval battle on lake Erie. The museum also has interesting displays explaining naval battles and the damage a cannon ball created on board ship.
