    I have been here countless times and I am always impressed with this structure. The work that went I to this place is amazing. Take the free tour, watch the laser show nightly on the face of the dam. ...  more »

    Amazing site to visit, be sure to take the tour. The evening laser show on the dam is a must see too.

    I really enjoyed the dam tour, I took a lot of dam pictures and asked the guide a lot of dam questions. He was great, gave us a great dam tour with a bunch of dam information.

    They say this dam can hold back the entire Coulee Reservoir? Really?? All 600,000 tons of it? Oh please! This dam wouldn't stand a chance against the raging torrent that would ensue were it not held back so tightly by the government's secret powers! You do not fool me, you slab of concrete basked in high daylight! There is clearly more at work here than simple stoppage of water by thick concrete walls. Behind the walls of these dams lies not undrinkably massive volumes of water but the darkest magicks which our species has ever coerced from Earth's blackest soils!

    My visit was nostalgic, last time I was here was the mid 90's. Brought my boy here for the laser show and he loved it. Then before everything closed up we toured the inside to learn more about the history. Good times.

    The Grand Coulee Dam is an amazing feat of engineering. Check out the laser show or visit the museum for some fun an interesting details.
