The first time we've been the only customers anywhere but this added to the charm! Lots and lots of exhibits but perhaps not as up to date as we were expecting. Wonderful displays of bronzes and trophies, a veritable collection of treasures. Some footage too of swimming's memorable moments. Would love to have seen this on up to date computer... More

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,...

The staff is very friendly and all the displays are put together beautifully. Admission price is very reasonable. This is one best attractions in all of Florida. Great gift shop situated in a lovely area.The... More

Actually, I swam laps in the adjacent public pools. Amazing. It was finding the Holy Grail of pools.

The best part of this place is you can swim in the amazing pools. They are without a doubt the best pool I have ever swam in. You could do laps forever here and the price is reasonable. The also have a great swim gear shop.

We skipped the Hall of Fame which was $8 each. We opted to swim in the Olympic 50 meter pool. We paid $4 senior, $4 student, and $5 adult. We also paid for parking which was by the pool or across the street. The cool water was the best I found on our FL trip. This is the perfect place... More
