This past July the Niagara Falls History Museum revealed the new Ferry Street museum and all the hard work that has gone into the renovations. Not only does the museum look wonderful but it also offers some great programming to the city of Niagara Falls. There are currently three galleries in the museum for us to enjoy: The Gale Family War of 1812, Niagara Falls and Ontario Power Generation galleries.

Thursday nights the galleries are open free of charge from 5-9pm, perfect for a cheap date night or showing the kids some of the town’s history. Along with the free galleries, there will also be Thursday night programming throughout the year with the Philosopher’s Cafe and Niagara on Screen. Niagara on Screen is hosted by Professor Joan Nicks and starts at 7pm, exposing films that involve Niagara Falls.

Throughout the last month of the summer, make sure you take advantage of Summer Sun Days. Taking place at Battle Ground Hotel Museum with a donation to participate, there are different themed activities happening from 11am-5pm once a week.
