We were guests at the hotel and got free entry. It was super interesting and learned more than I knew, even as a local. Nice little perk to the hotel.

This was a great museum to visit. It’s $2 for adults and $1 for kids. This would be a great place to stop and learn a little more about the history of the dam before actually heading over to the dam itself.
