GRAND COULEE, Wash. – Today, the Bureau of Reclamation announced the re-opening for the Grand Coulee Dam Visitor Center and the return of the “One River, Many Voices” laser light show, both effective May 29. Dam tours will not resume this calendar year.
To safely re-open the visitor center and return the laser light show, Reclamation will be following the recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fully vaccinated visitors are no longer required to wear a mask.

We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding with the new safety guidelines we have in place.”
The visitor center will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PDT, seven days a week. The laser light show will begin at 10:00 p.m. through July 31.
