Who knew we were “bathing” incorrectly! Take the guided tour. Very informative about the bathing process and history of Mr. Fordyce. Take the time to check out the 2 nd and third floor rooms and displays. You really get a feel for what it was like.

When in Hot Springs, you must stop by its visitor center. They have a nice self-guided tours of what bath houses originally looked like. You will learn the history of the Hot Springs and the bath houses. Best of all, it is a free activity. It won’t take you longer than 30 to 60 minutes. If you are collecting passport stamps of national parks, you can collect one there.
They don’t have onsite parking, but there’s a parking garage nearby and free street parking close by too.

Building is pretty neat and spots are beautiful. Tour can be a bit depressing, but it isn't necessary to explore the building.

I love museums you can touch - this is just amazing. Even my 5 year old was interested in this place. You are transported back to the 1920s and it’s opulence.

This is a must-see if you’re in Hot Springs. The museum showcases how the bath house looked when it was in use. Several stories to explore. All in beautiful condition.
