Niagara Science Museum 


The Niagara Science Museum is located about two miles (3 km) from the Niagara Falls. The museum is housed in the original Union Carbide building constructed in 1910 and the abandoned Union Carbide plants can still be seen behind the museum. The Niagara Science Museum opened to the public in 2009 and is devoted to the history of scientific discoveries through the preservation, restoration, and demonstration of scientific instruments and technologies. The museum opens throughout the week from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from mid-April to late October. Outside the period, the museum opens to visitors only by appointment. 

The Niagara Science Museum was founded by Nick Dalacu, a physicist who amassed a personal collection of significant instruments and technologies over four decades. There are more than 2,000 scientific instruments and technologies dating from the 18th century to the present era. There are rooms dedicated to high-voltage electronics and galvanometers, microscopes and optics, minerals and gemstones, communication and media technologies, and medical technologies. Others include solar cells and modules, hydraulics and vacuum technologies, meteorological instruments, and heat.
