One short movie and some geological facts about niagra. The best thing was the view of niagra from outside the centre .

Information on this movie was very helpful to tell the story of the Falls. Took the trolley here and watched the movie.

The Disovery Center is a great stop to learn about the history and geological history of The Falls. Definitely for the older children or those who are able to be sustained while adults read more. The movie is very informative. A great stop.

This center in the state park is well worth visiting even if you do not do the boat trip, it is full of interesting facts about the fall.

My family came here to buy discovery passes and trolley tickets. We were a group of nine, so we didn't all go in the place, but every woman working there was so testy with us. We are paying customers and they were acting like we...More

I believe this building is around 3 dollars to get into and 2 for kids. But I agree with the comment above- grab the discovery pass!
