Niagara Gorge Discovery Center

About:
Robert Moses State Pkwy, Niagara Falls, NY 14303 716-278-1070

Description: AMERICAN SIDE. Charting geology’s effects on this part of the world, the Discovery Center educates visitors about Niagara Falls and the Gorge. Interactive exhibits and displays show how the river has carved out local terrain and how, 12,000 years ago, the Falls were created. Fossils and rock formations provide clues to the long-ago event and a short film helps clarify the process. Outdoors, an overlook offers a vista of the Gorge itself and a trailhead leads trekkers directly into it.
