We always look forward to this stop. We tour the museum stopping at new exhibits, talking with the volunteers and do a little shopping. The exhibits are interesting and well done. I always learn something new.

Nice little museum in the Boulder Dam Hotel. You get a feel for what it must have been like during the building of the dam. Don't miss this little gem.

Facts are interesting, and you can learn much about the construction of Hoover Dam. There are models and many photograps of what took place in the planning and building of this great structure.

It was free when we went (Oct 2018) with a donation box at the end so be sure to bring cash to drop in! It was very informative and the kids loved it too.
