We visited on 04/19 and were completely blown away by the quality of and engagement with the exhibits. Almost everything was designed to touch and manipulate. It was a great way to learn about power supply and demand. My 12 year old nephew was fully mesmerized by everything we saw, and I did not want to leave. A definite must... More

This was great. I wish we had more time. Not really teenagers but there is a 4d experience. I was reluctant. But it's worth it. Lots to learn about electricity. Even if your not the engineering type.

There are so many attractions at Niagara Falls that have nothing to do with The Falls and cost significant $$s to visit. This attraction is 100% free, including the photos! Its interactive, educational and entertaining. So much about the falls and how their energy is harnessed is explained so all levels can understand. I was here several years ago and... More

We loved this Visitor Museum. It is a wonderful place to learn about the history of the area and how the power in the water makes a difference.

A nice place to visit with the kids. It has a good description of electricity generation and a decent view of the gorge downstream of Niagra falls. You do not get a very interesting river view.

So many interactive things for kids to do! We spent an hour and a half here. We could've easily spent longer, but had to start heading home.

If you were here years ago, you will be stunned by the change. Magnificent scenery complemented by educational and entertaining exhibits. Very interactive and a great rainy day activity. Not really suitable for babies or strollers, but the school aged children will have a blast. Plenty of free parking right outside the entrance, which is very friendly and welcoming. It's... More
