Interesting if you are into swimming but not well put together and gets boring quite fast. A good thing to do if it is raining and it is close to the beach and the restaurant -Coconuts-next door is very good.

In my younger life I used to be a competitive swimmer, a very good one at that, and I used to come here to swim frequently. This place hasn't changed much at all and it still holds many sweet memories.

Great public facility in the heart of Fort Lauderdale Beach. The facility is old, and the locker rooms are pretty gross. However, it's awesome to have access to an Olympic size pool! Some of the staff can be a little mean, but you just have...More

This museum isn't advertised, but it certainly is worth seeing. There are two separate bldgs and both must be seen. There are beautiful medals, bathing suits, videos, photos, sculptures...so much to see. You can spend 60-90 mins. here, with no problem. In between the two...More

If you swim or your kids have participated in competitive swimming - or if you are an Olympics junky - don't miss this place. We planned an hour but should have planned at least two, maybe three. There were videos of famous swims, an exhibit...More

Not sure about swimming lessons we just toured one rainey day in Ft Lauderdale. I do know they have plans to move to California but not sure that is happening.

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.
