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

You can go into the pools and feel the water from a spring. You can also see the old bath house. Best to go to the Little White House first as it gives a better appreciation of the positivity of FDR. Lots to see and...More

Interesting to see where President Franklin D. Roosevelt would go to swim and do therapy to seek relief from his polio. You can just visualize how it was for him and the hundreds of others who came here hoping for help.

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!
