Most swimmers set the Swimming Hall of Fame as a goal - my children and I 'lived' here for most of their childhood. They trained here on Jack Nelson's Ft. Lauderdale Swim Team in the 70's and 80's. We were so fortunate to live just...More

Great public facility in the heart of Fort Lauderdale Beach. The facility is old, and the locker rooms are pretty gross. However, it's awesome to have access to an Olympic size pool! Some of the staff can be a little mean, but you just have...More

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting the International Swimming Hall of Fame. It was a fantastic experience! Even if you are not an avid swimmer, but just interested in history or sport in general, you should visit. Certainly, it's one...More

If you swim or your kids have participated in competitive swimming - or if you are an Olympics junky - don't miss this place. We planned an hour but should have planned at least two, maybe three. There were videos of famous swims, an exhibit...More

The pools looked great and the people were very nice. It was such a hot and steamy day, the pools were calling you to jump in to take a dip.

Came here for personal coaching instruction. Once we got a hold of them we easily scheduled lessons. The coaches were great. The facilities are old but large and well kept.

Not sure about swimming lessons we just toured one rainey day in Ft Lauderdale. I do know they have plans to move to California but not sure that is happening.

Is the swimming hall of fame opened on Sunday? And is it free to swim

Response from M23rdPWR | Reviewed this property |
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.
