Hoover Dam Discovery Tours

Overview

The dam is named after America’s 31st president, Herbert Hoover.

It is a world-renowned structure that has been rated by the American Society of Civil Engineers as one of America’s Seven Modern Civil Engineering Wonders!

A National Historic Landmark, Hoover Dam is the highest concrete dam in the Western Hemisphere, standing at more than 725 feet above the Colorado River. With 17 generators producing 4 billion kilowatts of electricity a year, it also is one of the country’s largest hydroelectric power facilities.

The view from the dam also offers a breathtaking look at Lake Mead, the country’s largest man-made reservoir and the Colorado River.

The guided Powerplant Tour takes about 30 minutes, while the Dam Tour lasts nearly one hour. If you take one of these guided tours, and want to discover all the other features at Hoover Dam (not included on the guided tours), plan about two hours or more for your entire visit.
