  • It is well equipped but the whole place was built decades ago and has had zero renovations. The pools are falling apart, so are the locker rooms. In the locker rooms, the bathroom stall doors have had their locks removed and pieces of trim are falling off. The ceiling is full of holes. Half the toilets don't even work because the the flushing handles are broken. The water that comes out of the water fountains tastes terrible. The lockers are all rusted, some to the point where the bottom has collapsed. The floor tiles are cracked and broken in many places. Personal anecdote: I was there and one of the pools had so much chlorine it tasted like cement, and there were bits of chicken floating in the pool, including a drumstick, that were there the whole week I swam at that pool. At least the place has two large long course 50 m pools that can be converted to 25 yards side to side, along with a diving well with the ability to dive from any height from 1m to 10m.
  • What an amazing place, especially for anyone that loves swimming. So much history and information and stories. I could've stayed all day
  • Great pool for swimmers as there are so many lanes. If you're not there to do laps then it may not be the place for you as most of the pool is cut into lanes. The facility is dated and can do with a makeover but it's very functional.
  • Fun place to spend some time... Esp if you're a swim fan. Amazing photos, old suits, trophies, videos and more. Olympic pool.. Kids swim practice was going on. Nice gift shop.
  • My niece and I really enjoyed visiting the Swimming Hall of fame during our visit. What we found really neat is that when we were there, there were several Olympic Swimmers and Divers training. They did not mind at all if we sat in the bleachers and watched them train. This gave us a great insight as to how very difficult the trainers are, and what they go through during training. We watched them use a trampoline with the divers hooked up to a cable system to practice some of the dive moves. The museum is VERY expensive for what you get to see, and the gift shop offers OUTRAGEOUS prices, but it is worth seeing one time.
