“WOW!”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Our northwest history of dams was totally different, from what we learned here, as the dam is a different kind of dam. The tour of the dam was very informative and detailed. To be able to go inside and see the workings was incredible in this day and age...(you must be a US citizen with photo ID to go on this tour).

“If you like to know how things work, youll love this tour.”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

You must be prepared to show ID, this is a federal land so their is some rules you must go by. Especially in the dam: no electronic devices, no purses or backpacks, you must follow in a straight line and in the same sequence and do not vary, cameras everywhere and security. But if you can follow these simple rules youll have fun. You get to see the generators and the flow tubes that are in the dam, all the way down to the fallout shelt that does not exist today but is 170 feet down in the dam. If you like the history channel youll love this place.

“Dam Good Tour”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

Since 9/11, most hydroelectric dams in the US have been closed to visitors. We discovered while visiting Table Rock Dam that limited tours are again available. Within security restrictions, this is a very informative tour but so many areas of the dam are off limits that I couldn't give an excellent rating, That said, the tour is quite enjoyable and instructive. Our guide was a fountain of information and had a great deal of knowledge from when the dam was built. If you like engineering marvels, don't miss this tour.

“Great Time”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Very helpful volunteers and a great place to visit! We found the movie that was shown to be good and it had a nice showing of how the dam was constructed with interesting exhibits throughout the building.
