Niagara Gorge Discovery Center Reviews & Ratings

  • Are real Hidden Gem. Well worth the few dollar donation. Lots of interesting information that you never knew the best part is the elevator down to the gorge on the outside of the museum Center. Once you're down into the Gorge all the information in the Discovery Center starts to make sense. Very unique well worth the time to stop. Parking can be challenging but there is a bigger lot across the access Bridge

  • Wow!!! You can use the discovery pass to enter the aquarium. They have tons of marine species, best marine life to watch is jelly fish, sea lion show and penguin feeding. Find the right appropriate times and watch the shows there. It’s amazing.

  • Only 3$ admission but it is a small building. Great if you want to see the history of how the falls came to be, types of rocks, etc. Nice stop if you're exploring. Across from the aquarium via a bridge and about a mile walk to the falls and prospect point.

  • Besides the Discovery Center there is an elevator where great, unique views await at the bottom. Taking the elevator down to the water and looking up at the remains of the old power plants that used to be along the Niagara River ages ago is really cool. The stone walls and intakes are still visible. The maid of the mist boats are stored on the platform at the base of the elevator in winter but in summer you're able to walk in that area and view the river and the Rainbow Bridge from below. There's a small hiking trail that takes you along the Niagara river a short distance. There's another much longer hiking trail from the bottom that takes you along the gorge to the top. Or you can just take the elevator back up top.

  • Definitely didnt know there was an elevator that takes you down and brings you up to the top. Pretty sweet
