    This is a small museum in the old Boulder City Hotel. I was impressed with the movie showing the building of Hoover Dam. The displays were wonderful & very informative. It's free, accepts donations & definitely worthy of your time.

    This hotel and museum is the place to be seen, and for casual dining in its rustic restaurant and lounge. It is historically significant nationally, and forever tied to Hoover Dam. Close to old town antique shops, it's a great place for rest and recreation away from the Las Vegas strip. Suggest overnight or weekend stay at the hotel. Highly recommended.

    This is not the museum at the dam. This is a very small museum at the back of the Boulder dam hotel. That said, it was fun and informative and very cheap ($2).

Where to stay in Boulder City

Staying in one of downtown’s comfortable hotels keeps you close to the town’s stores, restaurants, and museums while on vacation. There are several theme hotels to choose from, reminiscent of Las Vegas’ glitz and playfulness. A motel located on the outskirts of town is often a cheaper option, and will usually provide convenient access to the highway if you are passing through. Many accommodations offer swimming pools, a great way to cool down after a day exploring in the Nevada heat.
