We stopped by the dam for a short visit, and we were duly impressed by the size of this project. The visitor center had a lot of information and the staff was very friendly.

The Grand Coulee Dam has an interesting history and is in a unique geographical setting that made it worth driving the extra miles to see it. The tour of the dam is free and fun for the family, especially the opportunity to travel across the top of the dam and look over the side.

Grand Coulee is an amazing example of engineering. A visit to the dam is not complete without going to the visitor center. The dam is impressive but you will be more more impressed when you watch the film showing and telling how it was built. The engineers and workers had huge obstacles o overcome. Put this on your bucket list... More

The history, the magnitude of constructions. The light show was fun also! As someone who grew up in Eastern Washington and lived part of the history, 1962 and on, it was interesting to see how all the stories wove together.

Great tour of the dam by very knowledgable guides. The museum has fascinating information on the history of the area and the building of the dam. The laser light show is average. But the are redoing it for next year. A must see if you are in the area. and it is all free!
