A great bit of history right by the beach. Wonderful facilities and sad to hear it may have limited days ahead.

The ISHOF is very much worthy of your consideration for a visit if you are in South Florida. However, you have to match your expectations to reality. Swimming is not like the major team sports in terms of revenue accumulation. Not many get rich through swimming. So if you are looking for a high tech, interactive bells and whistles museum,...
