Informative, but not very well presented, dated, and a little cheesy. Ok place to kill a little time, but don't make it a destination.

Curious about the crazy and/or courageous people who dared to go over the falls in a barrel? The Daredevil Exhibit not only shares the history, goals, and reasoning these adventurers had for their deeds, but also displays the actual contraptions designed and used, sometimes unsuccessfully,...More

I went here because I had discount tickets. Even with the discount I felt cheated. There is also an IMAX movie about the Falls that was done by National Geographic. Interesting but not worth the price of admission.
