“Walking through the state of the art at the turn of the century”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

A free tour of three floors of history - see it if you can. The displays are well done and almost all of the areas are open to walk through and experience. Rangers are on staff to answer questions. Walking around the building is also very interesting.

“Excellent Introduction to Hot Springs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We were very fortunate that the Fordyce Bathhouse Visitors Center just reopened after a year of remodeling. Park Rangers are helpful as usual and seeing how life was in earlier years is well worth the visit. Also, the videos on how the hot springs are formed were excellent.
Definitely worth a visit,

“The remodeled bath house is a can't miss stop in Hot Springs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

The Fordyce Bath House has been remodeled and reopening for visitors. It's excellent and provides great background to the what and why of Hot Springs. It was very educational and well worth the time.

“Thanks Government”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I just have to say, I planned this trip for months then a week before we went the government shut down. Shame on you politicians, if you cant run the parks, give them to the states. I'm sure the city of Hot Springs could run these places and keep them open. Tax dollars not at work.
