  • For the visitor this is a fascinating memorial about the dam failure and ensuing flood that killed more than 2,200 people in 1889. The story of what happened and why is well presented in the visitor c...  more »

  • This is a great place to visit, with one of a kind movie not shown anywhere else about the destructive flood of 1889. I was not aware of how the flood started until I visited this National Memorial. W...  more »

  • Very powerful exhibit and information about the tradgety of 1889 flood. To understand it and raise awareness is a wonderful way to honor the memory of the victims and the town's resilience. The film is very powerful experience and highlights the true horror of the flood; not great for kids or sensitive viewers, bit very powerful and sobering experience. The Junior Ranger program (takes an hour or less) is very good and is based on age.
  • Nice visitors center with good displays. Very weird movie. Could have been done in a much better way.
  • Great national park site. Shows video plus hiking trail of where actual dam broke. Nice clean displays inside
  • I have always loved history and have watched this place grow since it opened. The rangers do a great job.
  • One of the best monuments to a sad time in history. You must stay and see the movie.
