Our trip to the Dam was well worth the time. Besides a tour you can wonder around on your own, take the elevator to the top and enjoy the views. Lots of educational spots for children. Staff is very knowledgeable.

We read positive reviews about the visitor centre here and as it was a wet morning we paid a visit. There is a load of information about the building of the dam and its function, as well as a brilliant film about how the most recent turbine was built and transported from Brazil. It is possible to take a lift up to the top and take in the sheer size of the project.

The dam is an impressive feat of engineering. We took a guided tour and it was fascinating to learn not only about this facility, but about hydroelectric dams in general, as well as local area First Nations and history. You can do a self-guided tour if you want, but it's well worth it to wait for a guided tour. It very interesting to view the dam from many different perspectives including an amazing view from the top. Well worth the $30 family admission.

Try to arrive for a tour. Check on line for tour times. Interesting dam. Not that old compared with most of the dams down river. I have had more interesting dam tours, but still this was worth the visit. Also, be sure to drive up the road above the dam for a few miles to get a sense of the big lake it creates.

Wasn't really excited to do this but husband and grandson did so off we go. What a great tour. It is very interesting and impressive. I strongly suggest this. Inexpensive and so much fun. Interactives at the end of tour was a bonus.
