Hoover Dam was built between 1931 and 1935. One of the world's most famous dams, it's an excellent example of the engineering of its time.

The Power Plant Tour shows how the dam generates hydroelectric power by using the force of the Colorado River. In the visitor center, exhibitions complete the visit by explaining the history behind this gigantic building.
