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

Does a great job with the life of dam worker! Has an older era movie at end. Highlight is the operational model of the concrete delivery buckets on cables!

This is a good museum adding to the story of those who worked to build the Hoover Dam and the life and conditions which they experienced
