We took the FREE Ranger-guided tour and learned so much about Hot Springs bath houses and all the history behind them. This is a must-see attraction if you have questions about the history of the city.

We really enjoyed touring the bathhouse. Third floor is the best part so be sure to see it. The elevator was fun to ride. Definitely a must see attraction. Don't miss the Fordyce during your stay in Hot Springs. Love that the admission was free.

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!
