This is a great museum and full of information about the bathhouses and city. Lovely stained glass and fun to wander around.

Took a tour of the old bath house! Super fun! It's free and worth the trip. We didn't go with the tour guide because we wanted to go at our own pace. But either way it's educational and really neat.

An ideal respite at the end of a busy weekend walking all around Hot Springs. The lobby is clean and the information about how to proceed is plainly displayed. the Staff was friendly and the location was very clean.

This was a real bathhouse and many areas are as they were back then. Really a good look into what it was like in Hot Springs many years ago.

Great self guided tour, everything just as it would of been in the early 1900's. Amazing the exercise equipment that had been developed at that time. So similar of what you see in the gyms of today. It's well worth your time to explore this building!

I've been to Hot Springs about a dozen times, but never visited this place before. Boy was I missing out! It's free, there is a guided tour to learn all about the history of the bath houses and it's nice and cool inside to get out of the summer heat. We had our 12 year old and 9 year old... More

Cool that the facility allows a self guided tour throughout all 3 floors of the building. Everything within the building is very well maintained and really gives you a feel for the history of the area.

This is a quick either self led tour or you can jump in a group led by a guide for a periodic tour. The facility is amazing especially considering the time it was built in. Only think I wish was different would be to be able to touch/ feel the hot spring water. It seems like this would be a... More
