The Museum's three-dimensional, interactive displays and exhibits describe the great social and economic forces surrounding the 1929 Stock Market Crash and Depression. This event drove thousands of unemployed citizens from their homes into the isolation of the Nevada desert, where the Boulder Canyon Project was one of the few places in the United States where men could find work. Photographs, artifacts, oral histories, and the sounds of Hoover Dam construction ringing off the walls of Black Canyon provide a sense of the complexity, danger, and immense scale of the construction project. It provides a picture of ordinary life in an extraordinary time and place. Listen as these pioneers tell about their lives in Boulder City and down at the Hoover Dam construction site in the desperate years of the early 1930s. Admission to the Museum is always free. Historic items are available for sale at our front desk.
