    This is a MUST VISIT Museum! I recommend it to everyone planning a trip to Niagara Falls - whether the visit is on the US side or Canada. The history of this community is important to understanding the fight and flight to freedom from slavery in the U.S.

    The museum brings to life the important role that Niagara Falls, NY and its community of former slaves and abolitionists played in the success of the Underground Railroad. Our tour guide Jasiah was EXCEPTIONAL as she educated and engaged all in our tour group. The journey through the museum introduced me to heroic individuals whose names and courageous actions have been untold.

    I am so very pleased that my family and I made this museum a part of our Niagara Falls experience. If you are traveling to/from a visit to the Falls, I recommend you include a visit to the museum on your agenda. You will leave enlightened and inspired by the knowledge of those who came before us.

    A very special thanks to the leadership and staff of the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center!

    We had been to this museum many years ago. My husband more or less accidentally stumbled upon its web site, and we decided to go again. It was an interesting museum to visit, even if you are not an aviation fan. There's lots of local Buffalo regional history, and our docent Walt was really interesting.

    We enjoyed learning about the history of the area from the displays. These were some of the worst wax figures I've ever seen, however we were thoroughly entertained. Poor Abe Lincoln, with his forehead pressed against the display and a droplet of wax dripping off his nose, made us howl with laughter! If these figures are truly made of wax, one would think that a much cooler environment with proper climate control would be essential to maintain their structural integrity. It was a great place to pass the time and learn about some local history. There were several nice areas with props to take photos. The five of us gave it 10 thumbs up.

    for students of the history of german tribes and immigration, this is an intriguing little stop, proudly staffed by second-generation germans (who really had a tough time over here during the '40s) but it really need to be open a little more
