“Wonderful historic spa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

It is a fascinating look at the way folks used the spas when the springs were first popular. It has beautiful stained glass and self-guided tours.

This is an enjoyable guided tour for adults and features the historical bath equipment and luxury enjoyed by elite visitors. The fixtures, stained glass windows and furnishings in the club rooms are impressive.

“So beautiful, so neat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I live near Hot Springs, and I love touring the Fordyce Bathhouse any chance I get. It is absolutely GORGEOUS, and if you are like me and love old buildings, you will marvel at all the beautiful mosaic tiles, marble, stained glass, woodwork, and more. There is so much history there. Take the audio tour; it is well worth it! Make sure to sit in one of the giant bathtubs and imagine yourself back in the early 1900s. This is truly a grand building.
