May marked the opening of the new Dewey Short Visitor Center on Table Rock Lake. The 15,000 square foot facility was built at a cost of $10.8 million, and is sure to be a major Branson Area tourist attraction for many years to come.
The facility is both entertaining and educational for people of all ages. It includes exhibits that emphasize the Table Rock Lake Dam, the lake and the powerhouse. The center includes interactive exhibits focused on water safety, flood management, hydro-power and ecosystems.
The building was designed to be at the cutting edge of energy efficiency, building sustainability and low maintenance.
The center is located on Highway 165 just south of the Table Rock Dam, and is open daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
