Increased hours & tour size
The New York Power Authority (NYPA) on Thursday announced the expanded reopening of its Power Vista visitors center beginning June 7.
In accordance with New York state indoor family entertainment centers guidelines, the visitors center, located at 5777 Lewiston Road, will be open weekdays for tours of up to 25 people – including school groups, families, or individuals and groups who are traveling together. The tours will be a mix of guided and self-guided experiences with styluses distributed to keep the exhibits hands-free.
To protect visitors and NYPA employees, the Power Authority has added new safety precautions, including state-of-the-art indoor air filtration systems, visitor health screenings and temperature checks, and between-tour facility cleanings. All visitors must wear masks; tour guides will wear masks as well. Further information on health and safety entry requirements are available in the FAQ on the webpage.
NYPA has added a reservation system that allows for limited, timed, guided tours. Reservations are encouraged, but walk-ins can be scheduled if space permits. To make a reservation, or for further information, visit the visitors center information page on NYPA’s website at www.nypa.gov/niagarapowervista or call 1-716-286-6661.
Due to changing conditions in response to COVID-19, up-to-date information regarding the facilities will be available at nypa.gov/VisitorsCenters. All NYPA visitors center events remain canceled until further notice.
