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

I am a swimmer so the museum was fascinating for me! Swimming down through history, including in ancient art and literature, early days in America, the evolution of bathing attire, how Red Cross swim instruction and Lifesaving began, etc. Add to that swimming record holders and Olympic greats, swim photographers, celebrity swimmers and even a video replay of Rodney Dangerfield...
