  • If you want to know some facts, see some pics and tools from the making of the Dam this isn't a bad place to start. Some cool stories.  more »
  • We have been to the Hoover Dam a couple of times and have done their ( expensive) tour which I thoroughly enjoyed. Whilst that was about the actual building of the dam this museum was more interesting...  more »
  • We were stayng at the adjoining hotel and popped in to the museum, thinking it would take only five minutes. However, it was more informative and innovative than the exhibits at the Hoover Dam, so we ...  more »

  • Lovely older colonial style hotel with comfortable simple rooms in a historically significant area of Nevada. Flat screens, most channels, quiet programmable in-wall Japanese-made a/c units... Nice fireplace sitting area. Good selection of breakfast choices. Museum on-site. 100 meters to restaurants, coffee and curio shops. Free parking (shady until 10 am in summer). Staff polite and helpful. Only 20 min easy drive at any time of the day to the LV strip. 10 min to Hoover Dam site. Most stores and facilities close by 9-10 pm, so eat in Vegas before returning late. Charming and highly recommended.
  • Small, intimate museum depicting the life and time of the workers, who the built the remarkable Hoover Dam. The quotes and descriptions of their tiny houses, built specifically for them, was my favorite, i.e., "If you sneezed, you're house would fall down." A quality, quick place to bring the family. An adorable gift shop, as well, rounds out this Museum.
  • 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.
  • One of my favorite places to visit.
  • 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.

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.
