My daughter (15) and I enjoyed our visit to the Hoover Dam. It was an easy drive (under an hour) from the Strip and I was glad we rented a car and drove ourselves rather than taking a tour bus. Parking was easy and only $10 - suggestion on TA reviews to get an early start and arrive ahead of... More

Ask for the treasure map thingy - it's really fun and you'll learn more about the whole way that the Boulder Damn was built. It was pretty cool to see how the day-to-day stay-at-home-moms and the children lived while the men worked. The building the museum is in - incredibly beautiful with a lovely dining area.

Great way to learn a little about how/why the Boulder Dam (aka Hoover Dam) was created. Nice interactive things for the kiddies as well as adults. The short movie is informative for the adults, however the kids may start fidgeting. The Museum is located in a hotel - just walk up the stairs and to the left...some little art galleries... More

Were told about this museum at the Boulder City visitor center! Easy to find right inside the hotel. Price is $2. What a steal! Video on building of dam & then interactive museum. Given a quiz to fill in so you really have to read & pay attention to exhibits. Very easy to maneuver around & information easy to read... More

A must see to get the bigger picture on the construction of the Hoover Dam. Good place to start before heading to the attraction

We thoroughly enjoyed the museum and the film they show about the making of the Boulder Dam. The artifacts were displayed in an interesting way with interactive exhibits. The docent was very kind and she pointed out some less obvious pieces.

Found this by Accident when having lunch in Boulder City. Not advertised, but found Statues with information on how to get information and a website to view the various stops, with a map. Use you cellphone to follow this trail Many statues are only given names and some have a detailed description of the statue. Interesting bit of Boulder City... More
