In 1915 reviews proclaimed the Fordyce Bathhouse as the best in Hot Springs. Now you can tour the Fordyce and see the splendor. In May 1989, the Fordyce Bathhouse opened as the park visitor center; the bathhouse had actually gone out of business in 1962. It took extensive restoration, but the result is a look at the bathhouse as it was in the early years of business, complete with beautiful stained glass ceilings, marble walls and statues. You can tour the building, look at exhibits and watch movies on taking the baths and the park story.
Open from 9:00am to 5:00pm 7 days a week except on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
