Niagara Falls State Park Visitor Center features a gift shop and more

Niagara Falls State Park Visitor Center

In addition to maps and information, the Niagara Falls Visitor Center is home to the Niagara Adventure Theater, the Park's main gift shop, a café, and patio grill, where visitors can enjoy deli sandwiches, specialty coffees, ice cream and America's favorites from the grill.

A great place to begin your visit to Niagara Falls, the Niagara Falls State Park Visitor Center provides guests with interactive displays and exhibits. The Visitor Center is set within acres of brilliant floral gardens that have been designed to depict the Great Lakes region above the Falls, including grassy areas in the shapes of Lakes Michigan, Superior, Huron and Erie, as well as a walkway that follows the course of the Niagara River. It's open year-round.

In addition to serving as headquarters for authentic Niagara Falls souvenirs and merchandise, the Visitor Center is a convenient place to purchase a Niagara USA Discovery Pass, which is available seasonally. The Discovery Pass is essentially a passport that allows you to save on multiple park attractions, like the Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Winds Tour, Aquarium of Niagara and Niagara Adventure Theater. You can use the pass in one visit or on multiple visits to Niagara Falls State Park. Visit our Discovery Pass page for more information. But even during the winter, you can still experience the beauty of Niagara Falls State Park and see the Falls 365 days a year. We're open year-round!
