was hoping there would actually be water in at least one of the pools... the indoor pool is now an empty outdoor pool so i suspect up-keep would just be too costly. it was interesting enough though

It was interesting to visit the pools that were established at President Roosevelt's instructions. He used these pools and offered them to those that were suffering from polio like himself. There is the natural spring still flowing, however, the pools are no longer in use....More

Don’t miss this hidden gem filled with the history of the warm springs which brought President Roosevelt to this small rural town.

After touring President Roosevelt's house, this place is a must see. The museum is not nearly as big, but it is really interesting to see the size of the pool. Plus, you can dip your hand in the warm spring water.

There is a lot of history in Warm Springs and this is part of it. There are plans to restore the pools and that will make the visit awesome!

My family and I really enjoyed our trip to the Historic Warm Springs Pools. We learned so much about how polio effected both young and old alike and how President Roosevelt welcomed everyone to the therapeutic pools. What a sacred place to visit.

You get to see the pools that brought FDR to the area and see what they were used for. Good explanation of the therapy there.

One sees the pictures but being where FDR worked out in the pools is very interesting. The Museum is small but the stop is worth the fee.
