The Hall of fame and Museum is a really neat place for anyone with a swimming interest or background. The facility is showing its age, but it is still a great place to visit for an open swim or a visit to their displays.

Being a swimmer, I love the idea of a Hall of Fame, however, this place seems a little dated and run-down. Walking around on the outside one can see where repairs are needed and paint is required. I know I am partial to swimming, but...More

This place is open to the public daily. There are 16 olympic size pools. The price is no more than $10. If you love to swim you gotta come here. The change rooms are clean and have showers and lockers.

I have swam quiet a few camps at the swimminng hall of fame. The first time was in the late 70's and the many more times after. The pool is the greatest venue for any aspiring swimmer.

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.
