We stopped on our way home from our vacation in Canada. This was a great interactive experience for the whole family. I loved that it was educational for the kids too.

We only added this to our plans after reading the other views. We were pleasantly surprised.We spent a little over an hour here and the best part.....it was completely free! This place is interactive with plenty of gadgets to engage children and adults alike. Great for a rainy day or if you just want to add it your itinerary. My child is 11 and her favorite part was static electricity ball that made her hair stick out like crazy!

This place was fun, creative, and free, with beautiful views. I came alone, and had a ton of fun. The staff was excellent, and the entire facility, including the bathrooms was immacultately clean. If you don't have a car, you can get here via the free shuttle. Make sure to walk the entire observation deck, as the views are spectacular. Best surprise if the entire trip!

While visiting Canadian friends with friends from home, we stopped to view this attraction from across the river on the Canadian side en route to points north. The only ways to get a frontal view of this power plant are from the parking area near the Sir Adam Beck II Generating Station in Niagara on-the-Lake in Ontario and by boat or helicopter. The view from the parking area in Ontario was fabulous and free. This power plant was named for New York City Metropolitan Area planner and master builder Robert Moses. It is owned and operated by the New York Power Authority. It stands across the river from the Sir Adam Beck II Generating Station in Niagara on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada which came into service in 1954. Construction of this plant began in 1957. It opened in 1961. It cost $800 million. It is a gravity dam. The plant diverts water from the Niagara River above Niagara Falls and returns the water into the lower portion of the river near Lake Ontario. It uses 13 generators. We rate the Robert Moses Niagara Hydroelectric Power Station at 4.0. If you found this review helpful, please click THANK below.

We stopped here on a whim and had a great time! We went with our 16 year old and not quite 2 year old, they both had a blast. There was a lot to learn and was mostly interactive exhibits. There was a motion simulator ride, build your own power station and multiple photo opportunities that send to your email. You even get a souvenir badge and postcard. Plan to spend about 90 minutes here (but could probably do a quick walk thru in 30). Worth a stop and even better it was all free!
