Grand Coulee Dam Visitor Center
Grand Coulee Dam Visitor Center Review
Colorful displays about the dam, a 13-minute film on the site's geology and the dam's construction, and information about the laser-light show are on offer here. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, which oversees operation and maintenance of the dam, conducts tours year-round, weather and maintenance schedules permitting. You can also pick up a self-guided historical walking tour that will take you from the visitors center through the old part of town, across the bridge, and into the old engineers' town.
