If you love watching "Modern Marvels," or similar shows on the History or Discovery channels, you'll simply love the museum. It explains in detail how the dam was built, problems during construction, and a lot of other fun details. It also includes a tour into the belly of the dam itself. Well worth the drive and the money!

Love this museum, a must see if you are in Boulder City. They have an informative display about the building of the Hoover Dam. The employees are friendly, service with a smile. Put this place on your list of things to see in historic Boulder City.

The Hoover Dam museum contains a lot of information in a small space. We visited the museum before going to see the dam. All of the information and history helped us appreciate the dam more. The photos are outstanding and history of the dam and Boulder City is fascinating.

We were very impressed with the history and arrangement of this museum on the 2nd floor of a hotel. We easily spent an hour enjoying all there was to experience. The $2 entry fee is amazing! We spent far more for 2 museums in Flagstaff and were very disappointed in them.
