Wish we had gone to the National Park Visitor Center at the Fordyce Bathouse at the start of our trip. They are extremely knowledgable about everything happening in the park. The tour of the Bathouse itself is very interesting. The short movie they show is a great way to learn the history of Hot Springs. If you have children, they... More

The Fordyce Bathhouse was so interesting. Our family (w/ girls ages 8 & 5) enjoyed the tour of the bathhouse. It's amazing to think about all the people who walked through those doors and sat in those tubs for the last 100 years. At the front desk our girls were able to pick up Junior Ranger Activity books, as well... More

Beautiful building and a lot of neat items for purchase. We stopped in twice during our visit. Different employees and all were so friendly and helpful. Over and above customer service. Not pushy at all - just helpful.

This was our first time to visit the Visitor Center. We actually just stumbled upon this place. Best thing about this was that it was free and the AC was really cold compared to how hot it was outside. We were looking for somewhere to cool off and ended up walking through this whole place. I have never been inside... More

It is the park visitor center, free to the public. If you are in Hot Springs, you have to visit this place. Friendly park rangers will also give you any history information you want to know.

The first floor introduces you to the beauty of the bathhouse. From the lobby's marble and stained glass transoms, to the marble partitions of the bath halls, to the stained glass ceiling in the Men's Bath Hall, you can see why the Fordyce Bathhouse was considered to be the best. This ceramic fountain is at one end of the Fordyce... More
