Small venue about the start up of the old mineral waters town. Very interesting. Sad to hear the original spa stopped operating three years ago. Takes about 20 minutes to tour and read documents. Located in old downtown. If coming to this town good to go see.

The building is very interesting from an Art Deco viewpoint, and the information is a look into an era when people still "took the waters." The museum is more a tour through a ghost town at this point, which is sadly appropriate for the community. If you are in town for an event, this museum is worth a look as it is unique and historical.

The Hall of Waters has a lot of history and has a ton of potential, but it needs work. The old pool is drained and being used for storage. The old baths and spa area are pretty neat to see. If someone would invest in this place and get it up and running, it could be a great tourist attraction. The staff was friendly and offered good information about the history.

The displays were interesting and well planned. Some of the original bathing equipment was still set up and was part of the Spring Water bathing programs.

Worth a stop. Total missed opportunity for the town tourism. Could be very cool. Place was manned by one person. the "largest water bar in the world" was non-functional. The pool downstairs looked like a nice piece of art deco history. Too bad it was relegated to storage and we could only view from the windows.

This has a ton of potential. Someone needs to spend the money to make it a functional attraction.
