We were walking around downtown Boulder City and stopped in - it was late and we were surprised the museum was open. Museum is in the back of the hotel and was "self serve" operation. Free and donations requested. Worth a stop if in the area shopping or browsing.

This is a 20 minute stopover to wherever you are going. The museum is on the 2nd floor of the Boulder Dam Hotel. It is small, however, it housing quiet a bit of cool info on the dam, city and hotel.

My recommendation is to see this museum before you go Hoover Dam. By doing this everything will come together once you see Hoover Dam. It will give you a better perspective. There are lots of information at this musuem on how the dam was built. The museum is free but donations are accepted. The layout is good at the museum.

Lots of great information about Boulder city and the building of Hoover Dam. Donation only and is an inexpensive way to get a good sense of the history of Hoover Dam if you can’t get to Hoover Dam. It’s tucked away at the back of the hotel so don’t get sidetracked when you walk into the main doors and don’t see a museum

Small museum but very informative and nicely laid out. Lots of interesting facts and details. Located in the lovely Boulder city hotel. Also has a small gift shop with lots of local art for sale. Makes for a very nice outing.
