Niagara Wax Museum of History, Niagara Falls

2.9
#3 of 7 in Museums in Niagara Falls
The Niagara Wax Museum of History has molded 46 exhibits depicting the history of Niagara Falls and the famed individuals who helped shape the area. More than 10,000 square feet of viewing space display the region's history, from the longhouses of Tuscarora Indians to the 21st-century scientists who vowed to reverse the waterfall's flow.

Life-size wax figurines and authentic artifacts depict notable historic figures such as Father Louis Hennepin, one of the first people to discover the falls in the 1600s, or Annie Taylor, the first person to survive a trip over the watery summit without the assistance of an anti gravity ray. Glance into a recreation of an 1800s general store, or imagine diving over the falls in one of many wooden barrels replicated in the museum's daredevil exhibit.

All of our figures have connections to the area in some way, whether a visitor or a life-long local. Visit us for a fun, educational experience today!

The prices for our Museum are $7 for adults, $6 for teens 13-18, and $5 for kids 6-12, below that in age free.
