THE PARK RANGER MADE a tour that I thought only adults would appreciate. really fun for my two kids by including them in tour with what woud you do questions an answers. my wife and I were really surprised with all there was to learn about bath houses and hot springs in general. so never underestimate any national park treasures or the amazing people that work and share there time with you. makes great family vacations. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT MAKES THIS POSSIBLE FOR ALL TO ENJOY.

This is a really cool place to check out. Admission is free and so is the tour. The history of the bathhouses and early spa treatments is definitely worth the stop to get a glimpse into a past and way of life that has transformed in so many ways over the years.

The gentleman working here is a true delight! He was very friendly and happy to share information about HS so that we could make the most of our visit. It’s worth your time to stop in while visiting bathhouse row.

The Fordyce Bathhouse is now a museum administered by the National Park Service. There is a short movie that shows the days of splendor that made Hot Springs one of the go to places for the wealthy to cure their ailments.
It was very interesting worth seeing if in the area.

We stopped in on a whim, really not knowing what to do or where to go. We knew we wanted to at least get a sip of the hot, Hot Springs water. Went into the National Park visitor's center and told them exactly that- The drinkable spring access behind the center was broken- they sent us to the mountain fountain, but that one is cold. We toured this building (pretty interesting) saw the open springs (with lots of algae) behind the building, went up to the mountain observation area, and then happened to find a drinkable hot spring access point on the corner on our way back to parking. It was worth a stop, but it would have been helpful if the park employees were a bit more well, helpful.
