The tallest dam when originally built the photos take you back to a time when heavy machinery did not exist and there were many setbacks. The museum is small but worth the stop. Looking over the edge and down the canyon is beautiful and the water is an unexpected aqua green.

We made a quick stop, and it was worth seeing. It's a long walk from the parking area to the dam, but there is handicap parking close and a drop off spot. If you have little kids, make sure you go into the bathroom stall with them if they have to go while you are there. It's a giant hole...can't... More

Loved the information and gift shop and they even had escort cart to take you up to the shop and back to your car. Had a video to explain the site with maps and all. Really should see. Even my 10 year old son loved it!!

We learned about this on the Trolley Tour, and are glad we went back to visit the Dam. It is exciting to listen to the guided tour, and see the individual items being talked about at the same time! The Dam is a wonderful piece of history, and a really cool site to experience!

Just the ride out to the Dam is impressive enough. The dam itself is a fantastic sight to see. Very impressive! A must see.

you have to travel through several tunnels to get to the parking area of the dam. from the parking area, someone in a golf cart will pick you up and deliver you to the front door of the visitor's center and will do this at no charge to you. once inside the visitor's center, there is a store to purchase...

The dam is on a narrow part of the river through the gorge which makes it dramatic and worth a look and there is an excellent visitors centre. It's on the route to Yellowstone and a good stop off point.

This dam is on your way if you are going to Yellowstone. There is a very peace sensation. Take a ride to see inside to get a bit more information about the Dam.

We spent an hour or two learning about the history of the Dam. Always interesting to hear the stories. They picked us up at our car and took us to the visitor center at the Dam, the museum was full of information and they had a very interesting film they showed of the history of the construction. Nice time
