The Niagara Falls Museums are a municipally-run trio of sites dedicated to preserving the history of the City of Niagara Falls and the surrounding area. Using both artifacts and text, they highlight the large and small things that made up daily life in the area’s rich history.
The Niagara Falls History Museums look at early Black history, the War of 1812, notables like Sir Isaac Brock and Laura Secord, and even historic souvenirs.
The Battle Ground Hotel Museum focuses on early tourism, from a time when tourists came to see not just the falls but also the 1812 battlefield.
And Willoughby Historical Museum looks at everyday rural life, as well as commemorating the Battle of Chippawa. All three sites offer extensive collections, as well as programs and activities for schools and the public. The Historical Museum and the Willoughby Museum also offer research opportunities.
