We enjoyed the time we spent at the dam. Lots to see and learn, we especially enjoyed the hands-on exhibits and that was great for all ages! Loved the little beaver house!

This is an interesting place. It's perfect for a family with children. The displays are well done but the ride to the top of the dam and the lookout is amazing. There is a very good movie that explains how the final turbine was built in Brazil and transported to Canada and constructed in 2010. We have visited other dams and found this one to be fascinating and we'll worth the visit.

We were pleasantly surprised when we visited the centre. If you want to learn about the history of the dam and Columbia River then it's a must see. We spent an hour there but could have stayed longer if we arrived a little sooner since the centre closes at 4. The highlight is taking the elevator to the top of the dam.

Very inflexible because it was already closed at the beginning of September & we still had very good weather. With GPS bad to find. It should be specified with coordinates. And the visitor center should be informed regarding the closing.
