This was part of the admission to The Little White House and provided a great deal of insights into the care of Polio during this era. The refreshing warm springs helped many to strengthen and tone their muscles impacted by the virus. Be sure to...More

Seeing the empty mineral pools give you an erie feeling. Having grown up in the polio era, know how desperate people were to find relief from this dreaded disease. No admission fee if you have gone to the Little White House.

As part of the admission ticket, very informative and educational. Because of cracks that need to be repaired, they stand empty. It is nice of them to allow you to feel the water coming from underground but the pools seem ghostly in their current status.

I enjoyed learning about the history of the pools that helped so many with polio. Interesting to touch the water that filled the pools in the past (and will again someday).

I visited the pools after visiting the Little White House. On my first visit several years ago there was a park ranger that had been a patient and had met President Roosevelt...she narrates part of the audio tour. This is a great history lesson and...More

We included this attraction when we purchased our tickets to visit the Little White House. There's really only one thing to see - the pools. The bummer is that there is no water :( and I understand - it's very expensive to upkeep, but I...More

We are interested in History, so this "museum" was fascinating. To know FDR's part in this whole adventure was a real high-lite. To look at it, it is just an empty pool. To know that FDR was here and many people who believed that this...More
