Building is pretty neat and spots are beautiful. Tour can be a bit depressing, but it isn't necessary to explore the building.

I love museums you can touch - this is just amazing. Even my 5 year old was interested in this place. You are transported back to the 1920s and it’s opulence.

This is a must-see if you’re in Hot Springs. The museum showcases how the bath house looked when it was in use. Several stories to explore. All in beautiful condition.

We would recommend viewing the history of the bath houses of Hot Springs. Everyone thought that every floor had great things to see.

We thoroughly enjoyed our self-guided tour thru this 3-story bathhouse. Very good insight into bathhouses from years past; so educational; gives one an appreciation for conveniences we have today ... and we take them for granted, unfortunately.

We really enjoyed touring this old bathouse. There was a lot of information. Plan on spending about an hour there to see all the floors.

It was quite interesting to learn about the history of the bath houses and to see the original tubs, pipes and rooms that were used. Don't miss seeing the hot spring that fed this bath house when you view the exhibits and films. The chairs...More

Definitely worth visiting! Takes about 30-45 minutes to go through. 3 levels...make sure you ride the elevator as it is from the period of the bath houses. Right outside around the corner be sure to stop at the hot springs coming out the ground...get up...More
