The Niagara Falls Aviary

Call the aviary or check with their Web site for the daily schedule, as it changes seasonally.
Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks
Another worthwhile excursion in Niagara Falls is the Louis Tussaud Waxwork Museum. The museum has recently re-opened in a new location and houses over 120 wax figures that are startlingly life-like. Some of the figures you will see here include Albert Einstein, King Henry VIII and, yes, even Beyonce. The museum is open every day, including holidays, but check ahead as the hours of operation change during the year.
Do You Believe in Magic? Visit the Greg Frewin Theater
The Greg Frewin Theater hosts a magic show done in a kaleidoscopic-Las Vegas style. The show is a big hit with families who've brought their small children and young adults along on a Niagara Falls vacation.

Greg Frewin never fails to entertain the audience, and he’s been known to come out and meet the audience to sign autographs after the show.
