“Great visit!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

In May 2012, I brought a group of 27 12th grade Italian students to the station for a visit as part of an exchange they were doing with a Canadian school. One of the themes of the exchange was energy production so our students really appreciated everything they saw there and especially how well everything was explained. I had phoned earlier and asked to have a guide who was technically prepared to answer science students' questions. In fact, the gentleman who brought us on our visit was great and gave our students lots of interesting information and answered all their questions in a profession yet enthusiastic way. Would definitely suggest going if you're interested in learning about how the dam near the falls works - truly an impressive project.

“surprisingly interesting and fun”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

OK, I was dragged here - this one wasn't my choice, but it ended up being pretty good. About 40 mins for the tour and there weren't many others on it. Tour guide obviously enjoyed his job and he was informative. Interesting to see the inside of a working power station.

Didn’t go for official tour of the power station, but stopped at viewing area along road. The size of it is amazing.

“Nice Tour, Not A Lot to See”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

I would give this attraction a rating between good and very good (3.5 stars). A tour guide brought us through the plant (which you could see through windows only) and was quite informative as it relates to power generation, etc. A movie was featured at the end that tied the entire tour together with how the plant is effectively utilized, which was helpful to my teen and tweens. Tour was about 40 minutes long. We went because the plant was located next to the Butterfly Conservatory. Had these two places not been within proximity to one another we may not have stopped in. Worth it if passing by, but not something really necessary to go out of your way for.

“a little underwhelmed”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

My husband is an electrical engineer and was keen to see sight of more technical aspects. There could have been better access to the turbine floor and control room while still maintaining safe access. The entrance fee was not justified - mainly pictures and a sanitised view of the hall. The Hoover Dam allowed far greater access.
