Niagara Gorge Discovery Center
Located north of the Rainbow Bridge in the Niagara Reservation State Park , this geological museum offers visitors a multi-screen show on the 12,000-year history of the Niagara Gorge and Falls. Built in 1971 on the site of the Schoellkopf Hydro Electric Generating Station #3, destroyed by a rockslide in 1956, the museum was designed to look like a water turbine. The museum features a 13-minute show, hands-on displays such as 400-million-year-old worm trails, and a spectacular view of the Niagara River and Gorge.
This is a tiny "museum" - 4-5 exhibits (meaning a poster or two with some info - all the info you'll get at other attractions). The "movie" is ridiculous. This comes as part of the "park pass" but I'd suggest buying tickets to the Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Winds, and the Visitor's Center Movie separately and save a couple of bucks. The place looks like it hasn't been updated, renovated, or painted since the 80s.
We stumbled upon Discovery Center when we were heading for the Rainbow Bridge and found the Aquarium. After touring there, our 7 year old son decided he want to go oer the bridge and see what was there. We found the Discovery Center.
Once inside, we found it full of the geological history of the Falls, and also how the Falls have helped the area develop and grow. As someone who was born and raised in Northern NY, it was actually a bit of an eye-opener. For my son, it was great fun looking at all the rocks and playing with all the different cameras that have located throughout the region.
