My husband and I visited this attraction a few years ago when we went to Niagara Falls. I was going through my photo album and decided to post some photos of the exhibits that were on display at this museum & write a brief recap of what we saw there.
The daredevil museum is a small "museum" that basically lines the back wall and side wall of the inside of a Niagara Falls souvenier shop. There was no admission fee to see the barrel contraptions, jet ski, photos, or other exhibits that were on display. It was amazing to see the things that people built for their attempted journey over the falls. At the time we visited (2006), there was also a video playing on a mounted tv screen about one of the daredevils who attempted to go over the falls. It did not take us long to walk around and view all of the displays...maybe 20 minutes at most., including watching the video footage.
I feel this museum could have some potential to be a nice tribute to the daredevils who attempted Niagara Falls. I just wish the place had more space to display their items. I remember walking around the t-shirt racks & having a hard time getting photos without bumping into the clothing racks. They do not charge admission, but I believe there was a donation box if you wanted to give a dollar or two towards keeping the museum going.
It was not the easiest place to find since it is inside a souvenier shop. We probabaly would have missed it IF I didn't go looking for it & know exactly what we were looking for. It is a small "museum", but it is definately worth a peek on your way into or out of town!
