There is a lot more to discover in Niagara than the Water Falls itself. Located along Robert Moses Parkway is the Discovery Center.

The Center was created to educate and divulge the history of the area all the way to the present day. The history of the entire landscape and its people are revealed in minute detail.

The Center has audiovisual presentation of the complete history of the Niagara Falls, the waterways nearby and when the Falls evolved and how it has changed today. A giant screen show dramatically portrays how the geological era has changed and evolvement of the Falls to its present day features. Interactive displays and computer graphics are available to learn about the rocks, sediments and the minerals of the Niagara region.

Located just a few minutes away from the Discovery Center is the Niagara Gorge Trailhead Building- which leads directly to the Niagara Gorge Trails. The entrance to the museum is $ 5 for adults and $ 3 for children under 12.
