Revelstoke Dam Visitor Centre

View from top of Revelstoke Dam

At the Revelstoke Dam Visitor Centre, you'll learn about the history of the dam, enjoy fun and educational exhibits, and experience our First Nations Gallery.

When you arrive, you'll be in front of one of the most powerful dams in B.C. Whether you're on a guided or self-guided tour, you'll be able to take an elevator to the top of the dam for a breathtaking downstream view of the Columbia River Valley.

Revelstoke Dam Visitor Centre is located on the traditional territory of the Sylix Okanagan, Secwepemc, Sinixt and Ktunaxa Nations.
