The Revelstoke Dam Visitor Centre is now closed for the 2018 season. We will re-open next year on Saturday, May 18 to welcome visitors to the dam. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Our guests park directly in front of one of the most powerful dams in B.C. You'll have a chance to get up close to the second largest generating facility on the Columbia River. When the powerhouse started generating power in 1984, it produced 1,980 megawatts with four generating units. Since the addition of the fifth unit in 2010, the dam's output increased by 500 megawatts.
With guided or self-guided tours, guests can take in a breathtaking view of the dam and the Columbia River Valley from the dam crest at 175 metres above the river.
The Revelstoke Dam Visitor Centre is open for the 2018 season from Saturday, May 19 to Monday, September 3, 2018.
We're open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please note, adult visitors will need to supply valid photo ID to cross a security checkpoint prior to arriving at our Visitor Centre.
Daily guided tours
We offer guided tours or you're welcome to enjoy the Visitor Centre at your own pace. If you're part of a larger group, contact us in advance at 250 814 6697 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your tour.
Our daily guided tours are scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. each day. Please note that this is our regular schedule, but because we are a working dam and powerhouse, unforeseen issues may arise that force us to cancel tours.
We offer audio tour rentals in many languages. Our visitor centre is also fully wheelchair accessible and we have a great gift shop where our guests can take home a souvenir from their trip.
The visitor centres welcome licensed service dogs. All other pets are not allowed.
