The Niagara Historical Society & Museum seeks out the details of local historical events to highlight the stories behind the history. This quest for the details began when the Historical Society’s first president and museum founder, Janet Carnochan, wrote about the history of the community and collected artifacts that represent the history of the region. The museum collection began in 1896, and grew to chronicle the battles, refugee emigrations, and recreational developments that shaped the region. Today the museum houses more than 8,000 artifacts and 40,000 documents that rotate through the permanent exhibits, including a powder horn belonging to Chief Joseph Brant, uniforms from the War of 1812, and early Canadianna furniture. The museum’s historical significance even extends to the three separate buildings that house its artifacts. The high-school building was originally constructed in 1875, and Memorial Hall was recognized as the oldest museum building in the province by the Ontario Heritage Trust.

The Niagara Wax Museum of History has molded 46 exhibits depicting the history of Niagara Falls and the famed individuals who helped shape the area. More than 10,000 square feet of viewing space display the region's history, from the longhouses of Tuscarora Indians to the 21st-century scientists who vowed to reverse the waterfall's flow. Life-size wax figurines and authentic artifacts depict notable historic figures such as Father Louis Hennepin, one of the first people to discover the falls in the 1600s, or Annie Taylor, the first person to survive a trip over the watery summit without the assistance of an antigravity ray. Glance into a recreation of an 1800s general store, or imagine diving over the falls in one of many wooden barrels replicated in the museum's daredevil exhibit.

Ripley?s has enthralled audiences for more than nine decades with its dedication to revealing odd and unexplainable rarities from around the globe. But it all began with one man: Robert Ripley, a wildly successful and eccentric character who rose to fame during the first half of the 20th century. After selling his first cartoon to Life magazine at age 14, he set out on a quick-paced career of drawing sports cartoons for the New York Globe. During a slow day at the office, he sketched nine unusual sporting events and finished his work with a title: ?Believe It or Not!? It became immensely popular, allowing Ripley to travel the world in search of more bizarre stories to put into his comic strips. While visiting relatively unknown areas in locales such as India, China, and the inside of his neighbor?s chimney, he picked up a slew of unbelievable souvenirs that later became fixtures in several of Ripley?s museums, or as they?re affectionately called today, Odditoriums. Ripley?s now encompasses publications, attractions, a television show, and a blog, all of which carry Ripley?s tradition of reporting on the world?s curiosities.

A 1968 photograph of Joel Dombrowski shows him as a small boy, peering over a guardrail at Niagara Falls. Awestruck by the crashing waters, he looks as if he's trying to taste the mist. Exciting that sense of wonder in others would later become his profession. Today, Joel escorts first-timers through Niagara Falls State Park as a popular tour guide. He draws upon his training in journalism, experience as a standup comedian, and a lifetime obsession with history to share the story of the park with wit and elegance. For more than 10 years, his approach⎯merging stray historical facts with compelling anecdotes and comical accounts of waterfall lore⎯has made experiencing the Niagara landscape doubly memorable for his tour companions.
