Housing a vast collection of Niagara Falls history, this museum provides a showcase for the unique history of the famous city. After $12-million renovations, a dynamic space to examine and explore our diverse history now greets visitors. The renovation and expansion was designed by Toronto firm Moryama and Teshima; three unique galleries tell the most compelling Niagara Falls stories with engaging and hands-on exhibits. The museum is located within steps of the Drummond Hill Cemetery, which is the focal point of the Battle of Lundy’s Lane, the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812. The starting point for any trip to this battlefield will be a visit to the museum.

Free parking and a gift shop are available onsite. The museum is fully wheelchair accessible.
