Overview

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.
