Important notice of tourists.
Among the interesting features of the Falls, the Niagara Falls Museum (established on the Canada side in 1830) has been classed, but since its establishment on the American side, with its large addition, is now conceded the next of importance to the Falls. Visitors wonder when they enter its portals how it is possible for an individual to gather such a vast and varied collection in a life time. To accomplish this it has taken seventy years at a cost of over one million dollars.
Space will not allow to make mention of the many thousand special features in this grand exhibition, suffice it to say that the collection is now more varied and instructive than any on the American continent, and the arrangement more pleasing and artistic than any in the world.
To the millions who have visited the old institution, it might be stated, the additions to the old collection have been as numerous and extensive, the proprietors have been compelled to construct a building over twice as large as the old, in order to exibit them in.
The collection of Egyptian Mummies (one of which is the most perfect in the world) are well worth your visit solely to see. Guther B. March, one of the greatest
authorities on Egyptian Antiquities, pronounces them to be the most interesting and valuable in existence. In his description he draws a comparison with those that Barnum spoke of offering the Egyptian Government $ 100,00 for the privilege of exibiting at the Chicago Fair. He says, they are many ages older, better preserved and of more illustrious personages.
The latest addition to the Museum!
Made in the spring of 1891 is the Famous Art Gallery, Long established in Prospect Park, before the inauguration of the State Reservation. It comprises several hundred representations of the most notable scenes in European and Oriental History, ancient and modern; Churches, Palaces and Bridges; Lakes, Rivers and Mountains ; Naval and Land Engagements; Portraits of distinguished men of war, of letters, and of diplomacy; sacred scenes and incidents; all enlarged microscopically to life-size, and so arranged that one hundred persons may at the same time be pleasantly occupied in the enjoyment of the scenes of other days and climes. The Megalfthescopic views of Rome and Venice, which we have added to this collection, are the most enchanting and artistic effects ever viewed through a lens. These are the only pictures of their kind in America and therefore will be of interest to you.
This addition has cost many thousand dollars. We feel assured (by the many gratifying remarks passed by the hundreds who have already visited the Museum to see the latest acquisition) that your visit here will be the most pleasurable of any place you may visit around Niagara.
The observatory view
will amply repay you for your visit. Being elevated above all trees and buildings you are in view of the Falls and surroundings for eight and ten miles. This is most desirable to you, as it will inform you (without the aid of interested persons) where the prominent points on the river are located.
