Loved this bathhouse

It is great, right on historic Central Avenue; with a view of the sidewalks and close to very good restaurants.

Great place to get information about Bathhouse row. The sales associates were very knowledgeable in answering out questions about which bath houses offered which services.

National Park Service has done an excellent job restoring the facilities. The exhibits, artifacts and annotations allow for a self-guided experience. A lot of history in/around the area, and this is a MUST see.

Wow! Pretty Cool, to learn about the "Golden age of bathing" and it's heyday. The price was right, the presentations were good. Really quite interesting to my companion & I. We both enjoyed this! I highly recommend this!

Really enjoyed our tour of this facility. Very interesting seeing how the bath houses operated back in their heyday. The original gymnasium was a unique look back in time.

Admission is free. We chose to explore the house by ourselves rather than touring with a park ranger. There's a lot to see. Mosaic tile floors, antique treatment equipment, elaborate stain glass ceiling, all the elegant trappings of a bygone era.

We arrived later in the day but we managed to walk thru before they closed up shop for the day. It was quite interesting to see what was once a busy place! I need to read more on how they pumped the water in and whether it had to be reheated or was still hot enough out of the pipes.... More
