The Niagara Power Vista is temporarily closed until further notice

Please note that out of an abundance of concern for the health and safety of visitors and employees, and to meet the primary work of NYPA to generate and transmit electricity to support essential services, the Power Vista will be temporarily closed until further notice. Call us at 716-286-6661 or email us at npvista@nypa.gov for more information.

The outdoor recreation facilities are also closed. Effective Friday, November 13, NYPA fishing facilities including the fishing pier at the base of the Robert Moses Dam will close for the season. For information on the fishing pier, please call (716) 286-6662.

We look forward to reopening the Power Vista at a future date when it is safe to do so, and welcoming you with your health and safety as our top priorities.

When our visitors center reopens you will be able to submit a 'Schedule a Tour' form to connect with us about a tour. Though we are currently closed you can view our Power Vista Visitors FAQ for important information on the measures we’ve implemented to help protect your health and safety. Previously announced events for 2020 remain cancelled. Watch for a schedule of coming events, when it is safe to proceed, in 2021.

To maintain the health and safety of our visitors, we will follow the 'Reopening New York for Low-Risk Indoor Arts & Entertainment Guidelines for Employers and Employees' so interactive exhibits and enclosed theatres will not be available when the Power Vista reopens. 


Discover the Energy of New York at the Niagara Power Vista

The geology of Niagara. The argument between two electricity titans. The chance to design your own dam, to operate a power grid during a storm, and to walk through a turbine. A high-tech virtual ride that takes you plummeting from the sky and into the Niagara River; shooting through the penstocks and swirling around a spinning turbine; then zipping at high speeds along high-tension power lines across the landscapes of New York State. From seat-gripping virtual reality to hands-on experiments to the power of nature, the Power Player experience at the Niagara Power Vista is free and a must-see for all in the Niagara area!
