The Niagara Aerospace Museum is an aviation museum located in Niagara Falls, New York, in the old terminal building of the Niagara Falls International Airport. The museum has been located in a number of places in the Niagara Falls/Buffalo area. It had been located in the Niagara Office Building in downtown Niagara Falls and relocated in 2008 to the site of the then HSBC center on the waterfront in Buffalo, NY, where it was known as the Ira G. Ross Aerospace Museum. In the summer of 2013, the museum moved to its current location.Put Niagara Aerospace Museum and other Niagara Falls attractions into our Niagara Falls road trip planning tool, and watch your holiday take shape.
Both Bell Aircraft Corporation and Curtiss-Wright Corporation had corporate headquarters, research & development (R&D), and manufacturing operations nearby in the middle of the twentieth century, and much of the material on display is from these two aviation companies. Among its many displays are many examples of early to mid-twentieth century piston, turbo-jet, turbo-shaft, and jet engines, as well as several static display aircraft including early Bell helicopters, an example of the World War II Bell P-39 Airacobra, and the Bell X-22 tilt-ducted-fan VSTOL aircraft.

We had a great time visiting this museum for my Dad’s birthday. Walter was incredibly knowledgeable and provided us with a wonderful free tour of the facility. His back stories added tremendously... more »
Great place to visit, Walter is an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable. Great local history, discover USA military planes from concept to implementation. more »
I went to their open house which had free admission. It's not a really big Museum but it does have a lot of airplanes, helicopters, and history from the beginning of flight all the way to space. I recommend if you're in the area or really into flight.
So much history. Just an FYI, it's very warm inside. AC was not working. If possible enjoy on a cooler day than the hottest day of the year.
