We visited in 2003, and they have made a lot of improvements since then. New visitor center with incredible exhibits detailing all kinds of history tangential to the creation of the dam, a really great introductory film, excellent processes for moving the tour groups along,...More

We were thrilled to find that you are still able to drive across the dam, even if only to the free car parks. The car park on the Nevada side costs $10 and is slightly closer to the visitor centre but I would recommend a...More

Interesting construction and history. Worth a stop to get out and walk around. You can park free if you drive past the ramp to the parking lots and walk back to the dam. Take water and comfortable shoes.

My family of five took the Dam tour for $30 each. I would recommend this tour if you love to learn. You start off with an educational 10 minute movie about the dam. Our tour didn’t start for an hour, so we spent the time...More

Let me clarify, you cannot pre-purchase prior to day of your tour. Once doors open and tickets go on sale, and then you can buy for later in the same day.

Sure! It's not a bad drive. But, if you are wanting to go on a tour, plan to get there early in the busy season, We arrived just before opening and still stood in a line and ended up in the second group of tours. (That was... More
