Dworshak Dam Visitor Center offers three floors of exhibits from displays on power operations, to history and culture of the area, to large interactive maps, and a theatre that plays a number of videos on demand for our visitors. Come and see some of our popular movies like “The Last of the Log Drives” or “Dworshak Construction.” We have plenty of brochures and handouts and would be happy to answer any question you have about Dworshak and the surrounding areas. Dworshak Visitor Center has a small gift shop ran by Discover Your Northwest that sells t-shirts, hats, stuff animals, postcards, lapel pins, and patches. The gift shop takes cash, check, and credit. The visitor center has a number of picnic tables, trashcans, and restrooms to accommodate large groups of people.
