An interesting museum to visit while at Niagara. It's very much worth a detour if you have some interest in science. The owner/curator, Mr. Nick Dalacu, does a great job of communicating his interest and knowledge, especially to students. Highly recommended.

I think a person is lucky if once in his lifetime he has a teacher who is truly passionate about the subject he teaches. If you are a person who has never had that privilege, then now is your chance. Nick Dalacu, the curator of the Niagara Science Museum, is humble but sharp as a tack. He knows how to... More

First of all--science was my worst subject. I decided on this side trip because my wife is a bit of a science nerd, and the reviews were outstanding. At the end, my wife had to drag me out of there. If she didn't, I'd still be there listening to the Museums curator, Nick, and I'm sure he'd still be there... More

Me and my wife visited Nick and his museum during our stay in niagara falls, and we were blown away. He has some of the most amazing scientific tools on display there, and delights in showing them to guests. He answered all of our questions so thoroughly that I had a hard time keeping up with his knowledge of physics.... More

I was in Niagara Falls, NY recently on business and had the joy of discovering a hidden gem. The Niagara Science Museum isn’t full of neon signs or flashing lights – at least not until the curator begins the high voltage demonstrations; it is full of fabulous antiques and gadgets and gizmos that make a physics geek like me all...

I was searching for museums in Niagara Falls and kept getting Guiness Book of Records,Ripleys and the usual tourist pablum. I was delighted to find one true museum,The Niagara Science Museum .It is off the beaten path away from the tourist area but trust me,it is worth the drive. Imagine our surprise when we walked in and were greeted by... More

My girlfriend and I visited this museum this fall on our way through Niagara falls. For a history of science buff like me and a storyteller like her it was a wonderful hidden gem. The place is literally stocked to the gills with instruments, machines, and devices - in many cases hand made in a lost age of craftsmanship. The... More

I decided to visit the museum after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. I am very glad I did so - it turned out to be one of the life experiences! The museum is the love affair of a physicist, Nick Dalacu, with science. Nick really wants people to get the best out of their visit and experience the beauty of... More

The Niagara Science Museum is the personal collection of one man, Nick Daclau, a physicist who has spent his life curating this collection of scientific instruments, both historical and contemporary. Even if you have little interest in this topic, don't miss this museum! Nick will give you a personal tour of the museum, and is not only passionate about his... More

I arrived to the Niagara Science Museum and parked in the rear. The parking was behind the building but I was still able to follow the signs to the museum. The museum was not clearly labeled out front but my trusty GPS knew right where to go (signs pointed to parking). We arrived and were the only ones there because... More
