Couldn't see much because of too many people, staff didn't seem friendly & overpriced. Not my idea of fun.

This is a MANDATORY stop for anyone going to Hoover Damn, or as you will learn, Boulder Dam! So much history and its only a couple bucks!

I liked how the things they displayed about the hoover dam. I also liked the film they showed how the hoover dam was made.

I came here on the way to the Hoover Dam almost by accident...just drove through town, saw it, stopped, and looked around.

The museum has quite a bit to offer for the $2 you pay to get in, making it an amazing deal! Everything has an old feel to it, and you get a very good idea of the building of the dam and the story behind how it came to be. There are lots of exhibits, artifacts, and some movies you can watch, too. You can easily spend an hour or two here and not realize it!

The dam itself does not explain much of this history, so this gives you a really good view into the economy and the lives of the people that built it.

Lots of visitors to the Hoover Dam go straight past Boulder City (we have on several occasions) and miss out on this excellent museum. It explains just about everything you want to know and lots you didn't know that you would like to know about the dam, its planning and its building plus the building and development of Boulder City. Well presented and only $2. Great value.
