Activity Overview

Surround yourself with various aquatic memorabilia for swimming, diving, water polo, and synchronized swimming in the International Swimming Hall of Fame (ISHOF) Museum. The journey of the world's greatest athletes, such Esther Williams and Michael Phelps, are on display along with their medals and recognitions. The place also has a theater, two 50m pools, and a diving well.

Things to Do

Watch videos about water safety and Olympic Games coverages in the Huizenga Theater.

Check the latest displays hosted at the Exhibition Hall. The museum also has an exhibit dedicated for Swimming for People with Disabilities which highlights the swimming programs for individuals with visual and hearing impairments.

Visit The Henning Library and Archive to know more about the history of competitive swimming and other aquatic sports.

Have your photo taken with the wax figures of Mark Spitz and Johnny Weissmuller, get to know which American presidents were swimmers, and marvel at bronze sculptures with an aquatic theme at The Tripp Family Art Gallery.

After seeing the displays, end your tour with a few laps at the outdoor pool and practice back flips on the diving board.
