Fordyce Bathhouse offers a glimpse into the history of water therapy in the United States within an opulent Renaissance Revival setting. Step into the marble-lined lobby edged with fountains and paved with ceramic floor tiles. The bathhouse was part of the original bathhouse row that Hot Springs grew out of due to the discovery of mineral-rich thermal springs in the early 1800s. The fountains in the lobby once spouted this mineral-rich water constantly. Examine the intricate, stained-glass ceiling of the men's changing room, festooned with mermaids, fish, and bubbles. You can watch a short film outlining the traditional bath routine and also see the music room, which has an intricately patterned tile floor and stained-glass ceiling.

This is a cool place to visit and learn about the history of Hot Springs bathhouses. The exhibit is free of charge and open to the public. There are 4 floors, with artifacts and panels, images, and a brief history of the people that came to hot springs for thousands of years starting with Native Americans. If you're fascinated by history and a glimpse into how hot springs once looked, come to this place.
Really cool self guided tour experience! Really gorgeous in some areas. My youngest sister however did accidentally lock herself in one of the men's dressing room stalls. Watch out for that one.
