We visited the Hall of Fame with relatives, who for 17 years brought their children to participate in international swimming events. The venue was open to visit and if swimming is in your area of liking you may very well enjoy this visit.

Located aa short left turn from A1A it has the Olympic items as well as pool info. It looks as though a renovation of the outdoor performance theatre needs a upgrade as well

But also not very appealing in terms of aesthetics; many of the descriptions for the exhibits are written on a tiny, crumpled sheet of paper. But if you are really interested in the history of swimming, this shouldn't matter a thing to you. The museum overall is very informative, containing everything from the evolution of paddles to swim meets from... More

We visited ISHOF a few days ago after Christmas. The museum is packed with treasures. It is more than just olympic swimming, which in and of itself is already interesting. The history of bathing is eye-opening. A great place for kids and adults alike. Their staff is very friendly and knowledgable. We were surprised to find many artifacts about China... More

I have 4 kids who all swim and this was a perfect stop on our way down to The Keys. The exhibits were interesting and educational. The guy who gave the kids a little tour was clearly excited about his job, which is always refreshing! Definitely worth the cost and the stop! My kids just wished we had time to... More

Stopped by to see what it was all about, not worth it. A swimming pool and photos of historic events. Unless you are into shimming not worth it

We stopped by last spring so my son and I could get in a fast workout on vacation. This was his first experience swimming in a 50 meter pool and he wanted some experience before the upcoming long course swim season. The entry fee to the pool was a tremendous bargain and I would highly recommend any swimmers to check... More

This is a huge and not very busy swimming complex, which is great for laps, either in the main pool or on the side pool. There is a lot of guards on duty making the place particularly safe and staff are really friendly.
