Triple The Dam Fun

Boulder Dam Hotel Boulder City, Nevada

 

With the kids out of school, and possibly some out-of-town guests hanging about, consider the Boulder Dam Hotel which houses the Boulder City-Hoover Dam Museum and the Boulder City Art Guild Gallery.

Built in 1933 the Boulder Dam Hotel has seen a lot of famous people come through its doors, from Boris Karloff and Henry Fonda to O.J. Simpson. The ground floor has a restaurant (open for breakfast and lunch) and a lovely sitting area with wood paneled walls and a large fireplace. Check out the photo mural down the hallway for a blast from the past.

Upstairs you’ll find the Boulder City Art Guild Gallery with paintings, pottery, charming handmade jewelry and more.

Past the art gallery is the Boulder City-Hoover Dam Museum with exhibits, artifacts and interactive displays (try maneuvering the cargo bucket, fun! ) about the building of Hoover Dam and how Boulder City (“rag town”) got started. The museum’s Facebook page is full of interesting facts too (did you know our downtown streets were named for states that share water and electricity from the Colorado River and Hoover Dam? –  Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, California and Nevada). For more information, visit their website at www.bcmha.org.

And, they’re open this entire Holiday Season daily from 10am-5pm and are open every day except Christmas and New Years day!
