The building that houses this Niagara Falls attraction was the original Spirella Corset Factory, built in 1907. It was one of the first poured concrete buildings ever made in Canada. The building then became home to the famed Niagara Falls Museum in 1958, with its world-renowned collection of Egyptian artefacts. Amazingly, it was discovered the museum had been home to the actual mummy of King Ramesses I! Unfortunately for the museum, that fact wasn’t discovered until after the museum closed and the mummy was safely returned back to Egypt.
Bird Kingdom also features a Small Aviary, where smaller birds make their home; the Javanese House, a 125-year-old nobleman’s house from the island of Java; Nocturnal, an exhibit which stays light at night and dark during the day so night-living animals will be active during the museum’s hours; and the Macaw Market, featuring bird-related collectibles and gift items. Children can search for treasures from the past in our Kids Archaeology Dig and win a free prize! Be amazed to learn about Niagara in the Historic Niagara room. It’s excitement for the whole family and only a short walk from the Courtyard by Marriott Niagara Falls hotel.
