Films from the 1900's helped show the park as it was early on. You can get through this exhibit in 20 minutes. But, go back as time permits for more information.

The center is full of history on the Niagara area, even has a 20 minute movie that was interesting to watch. You can also take an elevator down to the bottom of the Gorge, I highly suggest doing so...it's a neat vantage from below!

Because we got a really good deal on our Discovery Package this was included, so we stopped and learned about the falls, including watching the video. It was interesting, but way over priced for the usual cost of the ticket package.

I was underwhelmed. While the staff were very friendly, there was very little to do for this tour, and so I will never do this again, and would not recommend this tour to others.
