“Dam Good Tour”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Since 9/11, most hydroelectric dams in the US have been closed to visitors. We discovered while visiting Table Rock Dam that limited tours are again available. Within security restrictions, this is a very informative tour but so many areas of the dam are off limits that I couldn't give an excellent rating, That said, the tour is quite enjoyable and instructive. Our guide was a fountain of information and had a great deal of knowledge from when the dam was built. If you like engineering marvels, don't miss this tour.

“Great Time”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Very helpful volunteers and a great place to visit! We found the movie that was shown to be good and it had a nice showing of how the dam was constructed with interesting exhibits throughout the building.

“Table Rock Dam Visitor Center”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I did not take the dam tour but went through the Visitor and Interpretative Center. It was excellent. There was an informative film describing the hisory of the area and Dam construction. The building is green construction and LEED certified. The design is artful as well. The exhibits were interactive and informative. Great stop!

“Nice Museum”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

I did not take the tour but the museum was very well done and interesting. The history of the dam is explained in detail. My teen age daughters had no interest at all, but if you like museums and history this is worth the time. Plus it is free!
