Did the self guided tour. Able to see many of the rooms and areas of the bathhouse set up like they were in their prime. Interesting visit and look back into the history of the bathhouses.

We enjoyed the tour of the bath house very much. The guide was well informed. The only negative about this visitor center is it wasn’t very helpful regarding other things to do in the city.

The gentleman working here is a true delight! He was very friendly and happy to share information about HS so that we could make the most of our visit. It’s worth your time to stop in while visiting bathhouse row.

Yes it is! You can do it guided or by your self. It is very well set for do it your self, you wouldn't feel like you are missing anything. It will take you 1 hour or so. And I strongly recommend it!
