Sunday morning. The place was empty, and the lady at the information booth never even acknowledged our presence, even though we were the only ones there. You can enjoy the architecture, but the spa area is kind of creepy when it's just two people looking around. That said, it was kind of interesting to take a mental step back in time. The nearby street was almost completely empty of stores and restaurants. No need for a return visit to this town.

You'll need to see the stunning art-deco here, and the original water bar! Interesting facts and photos posted throughout. Free to walk through, donation jar available.

Great History lesson

This is a diamond in the rough waiting for the right investor! Seriously, I think this town could make money again if they tapped into those old wells and started back up in the ‘healing waters’ / personal health business.

I loved the history of this place and the amazing representation of the Art Deco period.
The building has really fallen into disrepair and is no longer used, but it is still fun to venture through. Check out the old water bar! I can envision it open again one day selling water!

Interesting and beautiful

The architecture of the hall is stunning along with the light fixtures and other details. I enjoyed seeing and reading about the history. Make sure to see the hall, the bath house section and go downstairs to see the pool. Was probably a very amazing place to see in action years ago. No entrance fee, donation only.

No waters, but still worth seeing.

There is a small museum, uncurated, and the hall has a self-guided signage tour. No water, though. But it’s free and historic.

Beautiful Example of Art Deco Architecture
Jul 2019 • Solo
Sadly there's no longer much to it. It was very hot in the building, there was no water to sample, nobody is bottling anything from the springs, seems to have steadily gone downhill from my past visits over the years. I have no idea where the actual springs are, saw no signs in town, probably not even accessible. Too bad, it could be a thriving destination place like Eureka Springs or Hot Springs, Arkansas, which are very cool places where you can see the springs and fill containers with spring waters in several places (more accessible in Hot Springs).

We went to the Car Show with a group. It was very clean. And the building was very beautiful. Staff was very nice & knowledgeable.

Historical

Hall of Waters is housed in a beautiful building. The building currently serves as the City Administrative Office and also as Excelsior Springs Visitor Center. On the Saturday I visited, I could visit the VC, and the docent there was very helpful in explaining the history of the Water Bar. Additionally, the hall has artistically designed plaques providing pretty detailed history of the various aspects of Excelsior Springs. The grounds are also neat to walk around.

Do forget to stop at the marble statue of Napolean Boanaparte's sister at the entrance to the Hall.

Interesting History
Apr 2019 • Couples
I had no idea about the history of Excelsior Springs. The building was unique and filled with great information about the town and how it was once 'the place to go'. It does need some restoration. It would be even better if you could view the lower level (it was closed due to safety issues). I think its a great little stop if you make it to town.
