Historical view of the bath houses

A very interesting historical view of the early bath houses. Well kept and clean. We chose the self-tour, but wish we had time for the guided tour.

This is the National Parks Visitor Center and is FREE! I am all about finding fun and free things to do with the kids when possible to help on the budget. They give free tours of the first floor and the rest is self guided. If you go on the guided tour, FREE, you will learn a lot of history... More

We got to the bath house about 25 minutes before a tour was due to start. The ranger who was going to lead the tour suggested that we explore the second and third floors on our own while we waited as her tour only included the first floor. We did so and came back down when they announced the tour... More

Very well restored facility and well laid out self guided tour. The bath house has been fully restored as an exhibit in itself. Some of the interactive features could use updating, but the building itself is fascinating. A don't miss for history buffs!

I really enjoyed touring the bath house and learned a lot from my visit. It was interesting to see everything and honestly felt like taking a step back in time. The visitors center worker seemed pretty knowledge about the park, but she eventually sent me down a block to the city's visitor center to get more info. I thought that... More

I was with my husband and and his sister. I had never been to the baths, and wasn't planning to on this trip, so this was a good introduction to the history of the "hot springs" and how they are operated.

Very clean, historic. Guided or self-guided tours available. A great look at 1930s Hot Springs. Interesting, and not the everyday attraction!

I've been here several times but I still like taking the free tour every time. The history and the well kept appearance make this a great learning experience. Highly recommend 👍🏼

You can visit the bathhouse for free. The sights were interesting. My teenager enjoyed the visit. It is a nice place to relax from the heat. It even has a theater.

This is a great way to see how the old bath houses were run! There are informative signs at each section. You can take a self guided tour or wait for the guided tour. It was neat to see some of the things people in our past did for health benefits. It was also a little scary to see some... More
