“telling the story of the Boulder Canyon Project”
The Boulder City/Hoover Dam Museum tells the story of the Boulder Canyon Project as it was experienced by the men and women who braved the desolation of the Southern Nevada desert to build Hoover Dam and Boulder City. The Museum's three-dimensional, interactive displays and exhibits describe the great social and economic forces surrounding the 1929 Stock Market Crash and Depression that drove thousands of unemployed citizens from their homes into the isolation of the Nevada desert where the Boulder Canyon Project was one of the few places in the United States where men could find work.
We’ve been through the tour of the Dam before and at that time we got some history of the dam.
But this museum gave so MUCH more from the beginning to the completion. There is videos, pictures and a lot of info. You can spend 2 to 3 hours here.
By the way...no one is buried in cement!
The Hoover Dam is a great stop. So much history here. Loved it.
