With the package ticket purchase (for the Maid of the Mist boat tour) we got entry into the other attractions in the area. This one was the Niagara Gorge Learning Center (I think). I learned that the Eurypterid is New York's State fossil. They even had a cartoon Eurypterid that sported a backward facing ballcap.
This place was small but it did have some good information (but do yourself a favor and skip the movie).
