One should not go to the museum at the dam without also visiting this museum. While the museum at the dam focuses on the mechanics and construction, this museum focuses on the life of the worker and their family. It was very interesting. You'll have a new-found appreciation for the conditions that the workers had to go through in order to get us the water and electricity that we take for granted these days.

The Boulder City Museum is an excellent way to see how the dam was made, and the history of the area. I love the antique shops, eateries and there is always something going on in BC.

I love small town museums, and this one offers visitors an overview of the history of the Hoover Dam. I always take out-of-town visitors to this museum, which is located in the Historic Boulder Dam Hotel.

Well worth $2 to see the film and the rest of the museum artefacts. Also worth seeing the art gallery next door. This museum is in the back of a hotel-you have to go through the lobby.
If you are lucky you might meet the great Sandy Nelson playing the piano in the lobby

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