The Station

The Station

For 100 years, the “Canadian Niagara Power Company generating station” harnessed the powerful energy of the Horseshoe Falls and turned it into a great source of electricity. Now, years after its turbines came to a halt, the wonder of this hydropower pioneer is coming back to life in an entertaining and educational experience that highlights both the remarkable history and unique architectural features of this 115-year-old engineering marvel.

This not-to-be-missed experience offers an opportunity to be part of a thrilling revival, and a chance to discover the incredible history and heritage of this celebrated building. Dive into the history of the visionaries behind it as well as the workers that kept it running.

The Science of Power

Repurposed artifacts, interactive exhibits and interpretative installations offer a first-hand look at how this hydropower pioneer harnessed the power of water to generate electricity for 100 years. You’ll “follow the flow” up close with a scale model of the plant.

From its iconic roof to the tunnels deep below ground, it’s a remarkable demonstration of water to power. Then, roll up your sleeves and take control to learn first-hand how workers harnessed electricity every day at an interactive control panel.
