Absolutely loved learning about the history of the land we stood on and the stories shaped our future today. Honestly such an amazing place with interesting displays to accompany the stories as they are being told! Worth the price for sure!!!

Staff were very helpful and made sure safety was top priority. They definitely helped made us feel comfortable and at ease before we went up. Excellent experience! Highly recommend!

A lot of pools to choose from which was fantastic. I did enjoy going during the week as you have less people there and more time to soak in the pools which was really relaxing.

It was a great day, staff were super, my second time to visit the mud bath. Thank you Linda Stevens

We loved the place. All the Pools. Everything. We are considering going back as soon as possible.
