The Niagara Falls Museums is a team of staff and volunteers who are resourceful and enthusiastic in telling the story and preserving the ongoing culture and history of Niagara Falls. We are dedicated to promoting pride of place and engaging the community.
We will be the centre for historical and cultural activities in Niagara Falls through community awareness, participation and engagement.
Our Current Strategic Plan (2016-2017) sees us achieving this through creating partnerships, improving our image and developing and delivering quality programmes and events for the community. For details about our current plan, please contact the Museum.
