This was a great museum to visit. It’s $2 for adults and $1 for kids. This would be a great place to stop and learn a little more about the history of the dam before actually heading over to the dam itself.

How did they do all of this, you will be asking yourself as you marvel at the views. It is simply amazing that 80+ years ago, a group of determined men created such a wonder.

Quaint little hole in the wall museum depicting the early building days of the dam workers and their families. Worth all of the $2. Upstairs of the Boulder Hotel

We were stayng at the adjoining hotel and popped in to the museum, thinking it would take only five minutes. However, it was more informative and innovative than the exhibits at the Hoover Dam, so we spent longer than planned. It made the era come...More
