The video of the dam being built was wonderful, very informative, but not too long. Amazing View!! Great photo op. My 10 yr old really enjoyed it and even wanted to go back. Was a perfect addition to our trip.

Very short movie offered history of the area as well of the dam. Observation deck is a good place to take pix of the dam and lake.
