Niagara Falls History Museum

A modern way to journey through the past

Originally built in 1874 and housed within the old Stamford Town Hall, Niagara Falls History Museum will take you through the rich history of the city.

The Museum is located just steps from the Drummond Hill Cemetery, the focal point of the Battle of Lundy’s Lane, widely considered to be the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812.

A recent upgrade of the building included the introduction of three beautiful galleries and engaging interactive displays. During your visit, you get the opportunity to try on a replica uniform from the War of 1812, walk on a tightrope, and much more. With plenty of hands-on exhibits, this is an exciting experience for adults and children alike.
