I found this wax museum to be pretty interesting. You are not just looking at wax figures. You are learning about Niagara Falls history and historical figures. There is even a daredevil section. That was probably my favorite part of the museum. There are some...More

This was just okay, but it was a fun way to get out of the rain. We got some really funny pictures. We made the best of it.

This is a hold-over from the old days of Niagara Falls (pre casinos). Tells local history, but also is kitschy enough to be great fun. Nowhere else will you see a display with Princess Diana, Mother Theresa and Julia Roberts together. Also has Mark Twain...More

They have a lot history about Niagara Falls and United State to learn, about the indians, the power water they show a movie and we can take a lot pictures

While waiting to check into our hotel we saw the Wax Museum and thought we would give it a go. It's cheap to get in and had some interesting displays. Would have been better with more 'celebrity waxes'

A must for family fun. Take lots of pictures with the stars, past & present. I must say not all the wax works looked like the person.

So it's not super state-of-the-art--this is still a very informative museum! It's huge inside. It helps too that I'm a sucker for wax museums--everything is more interesting when illustrated with weird, not-actually-very-lifelike figures.

Really loved all the wax figures, some were so realistic it was scary! The Ozzie stature was really neat! The joker was so realistic that I thought it was a person wearing the outfit!

I don't think even Mark Twain's words could do justice to the EXPERIENCE that is visiting the Niagara Wax Museum of History. It's like a time capsule of a really cool museum that was built 40 years ago, and the owners just wiped their hands,...More

I enjoyed learning about the history of the falls. The wax figures made it a little eerie like walking through a haunted house, but educational none the less. My son was hoping for a bit more excitement but he still learned a few things.
