Wonderful Space & Aviation Museum celebrating upstate NY
Jan. 2021
Wanted to get away for my birthday and decided to go to Niagara Falls to see the aerospace museum which focuses on the aviation history of upstate NY and includes actual aircraft from Curtiss Wright, Bell Aerospace and the Consolidated Aircraft Co.

They had a unique one of a kind Cunningham-Hall GA-36 built in Rochester NY (was first plane to feature double motion wing flaps devised to lower landing speeds and not flying speeds) which was exciting to see as well as an actual control panel used by a mission controller during the Apollo moon missions. I love space so it was nice to see what items they had including a Lunar Ascent Engine and Rocket Belt (like seen in "Thunderball").

The place includes a few nice helicopters and lots of items celebrating the aviation history of NY. Being on the airport grounds, you might get lucky to see various planes taking off or landing.

Highly recommended museum for history and aviation buffs.

We have visited Niagara Falls several times over the years and it seems to change slightly by season. This is the first time that we went to the museum and found it not only closed but the building up for sale/lease.

Excellent aerospace museum focusing on aviation history in the Buffalo, NY area
Feb. 2020
If you're interested in aviation at all and in particular aviation history in Buffalo, NY, this is a must see museum. It has extensive photographs and actual aircraft on display from Curtiss Wright, Bell Aerospace and the Consolidated Aircraft Co. You can walk through yourself or enjoy a tour. Our tour guide Walter was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend it and plan on spending at least a couple hours there!

Wonderful Visit
Jan. 2020 • Family
My husband’s father was stationed at the air force base and my father worked for Moog, yet, neither of us ever visited the museum. When we found out about it, we decided to take a tour with our 13 year old son. Walter L. was available to lead the way and he was amazing !!! He knew what he was talking about and he was very educational and not boring. I learned so much about aviation and now it is just more me and my husband can have discussions about and I will have knowledge and understanding. Great visit

Absolutely amazing!

My husband loves anything to do with aviation, especially if it’s near an airport. Fortunately our home is near an airport and husband is a pilot! We have made our backyard a wonderful experience!

Great Museum

I had a wonderful visit with my daughter. The people there made it interesting for my daughter who isn't really an aviation fan. The exhibits are arranged in an easy to follow order and the staff is very accommodating.

So awesome!

Located near a small airport this place is well worth the drive! There is free parking right out front, and wheel chairs inside who need them.

Pricing is reasonable, plus the vet discount is extended to Canadians as well!

The museum is rather large and there is a great deal to see. There is also a play room for kids, with colouring and toys.

Well worth the drive! I look forward to returning.

My 11yr son enjoyed it so much. Walter Lechowski was his personal tour guide and kept quizzing him on his knowledge and he kept wanting to hear more. We will be back to see it again

The great History of western New York
Sep. 2019
Grew up in WNY and heard from Father about all the Factories and Business that supported Aerospace industry and the wonderful Bell plant. Had the chance to see all the great photos and history that We had in the Aerospace development. The Bell built the X1 and Lunar landing trainer. They also made the first helicopters. Sad that we lost all the history and the factories are gone Great visit for history Bufs
Hope they get more space to display the X22 and the TIFS

Niagara Aerospace Museum Tour
Jul. 2019
This museum has a myriad of artifacts, exhibits, and displays. Throughout my time at the museum, the displays and artifacts seemed to come alive. We were fortunate to have a tour guide who knew the history behind every artifact and display, Walter W., his knowledge of the museum fascinated me. Despite the museum's relative small size compared to other museums, it contains countless pieces of information from the history of local flight. I highly recommend this museum, and it is a must-see to anyone visiting Niagara Falls
