This place is open to the public daily. There are 16 olympic size pools. The price is no more than $10. If you love to swim you gotta come here. The change rooms are clean and have showers and lockers.

I have swam quiet a few camps at the swimminng hall of fame. The first time was in the late 70's and the many more times after. The pool is the greatest venue for any aspiring swimmer.

This place is old , ugly and disapoint of all point of view. In the 21 century , this place still up because there is no money for renovation and so stay the fame from the old time and nothing else.

I swam competitively growing up, but I never learned so much about the history of swimming and equipment until I visited this museum. I did find the video highlights to be US centric. Wish there would have been a bit more on swimming highlights for...More

Our 7 1/2 year old daughter has been taking swimming lessons here since she was 2 years old. Excellent instructors! Only criticism is the facilities definitely need updating. It is definitely a "landmark" in Florida!

Yes, it's open on Sunday if there is not a swimming event going on. There is a charge to swim anytime unless you are a resident of Ft. Lauderdale. I would call in advance.
