  • This was a stop on our Hoover Dam tour. Nice and quaint museum located in an historic building/hotel. Nice little art gallery included. You don't need that much time in the museum so, if you can...  more »
  • Historic hotel in Boulder City houses a free museum detailing the building of the Hoover Dam. It's a nice exhibit, and the stop is very worthwhile - good to understand what all went into...  more »

  • The most beautifully kept and restored historic hotel. I used to go to all the Hollywood memorabilia shops in here weekly. They had the best vintage jewelry and interesting collection of little stores selling old Hollywood glam lingerie. Sadly that was 20 year ago and this weekend I went to find just 1 thing open inside and that's the hoover dam museum. The museum is nice and interactive which is great for kids. The boulder city historic hotel will always have a special place in my heart. It's still worth checking out, sign the ledger and donate few dollars to help keep the hotel alive.
  • After moving away 20 years ago and coming back to show our children where we grew up , my husband and I were so happy to see how well this hotel is being cared for. It was in very poor condition in the 90s. The mini Museum about the construction of the dam is a lot of fun. Definitely worth the stop if you are traveling from Las Vegas to see the dam
  • Very historic local landmark with hotel, restaurant, gift shop, and very interesting museum featuring history of Hoover Dam. Located in the heart of historic downtown area.
  • When you think of Boulder City, the first thing that comes to mind is, of course, Hoover Dam. The 2nd is the Boulder City Museum and Historic Hotel. An absolute treasure and landmark that anchors the historic district of Boulder City. Free museum, a great restaurant, knowledgeable and friendly staff along with a lobby that whisks you back in time with its captivating and inviting layout. It's always a great place to relax between stops while touring this historic town.
  • Small museum inside a very historic building. Not a lot to see but enjoyed the video about building the dam. Fascinating history!
