“Must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

It shows a lot of behind the scene stuff with out the crowds. We get tons of tourist thru our city wanting to see the dam but no one stops in town to see this little gem. If you want to see some cool history of our city and dam make the stop and avoid the crowds at the dam.

“Engineering Wonder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Hoover dam is one of those places that you just have to see and you will never forget. The dam tour is outstanding and shouldn't be missed. The museum provides a good overview and understanding of the areas surrounding the dam and the reason for the placement of the dam. The details of the construction and the people who built the dam is extremely interesting.

Boulder City is a great little historic town with great food and shops.

“Living history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Nice little museum located in a hotel that was built about the same time as the dam. It gave some new insight into what the lives of the workers was like. Good for all ages.
