“informative & friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

This was a very interesting free self-guided tour, although, the gentleman working was very informative, so it was more like a guided tour. I enjoyed learning about the history of the area.

“Must see, Great architecture of another time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

It is hard to believe this building is not visited by more people. The terrazzo floors. The lighting. The tile work. Inside and out this is a wonderful structure. The young lady at the water bar was very pleasant and helpful. It was very interesting looking at the old photos and reading about a very important part of the past. It is a shame that the pool empty of water and in need of repair. At this time there are no plans to restore this area of the building to its former glory. At nearly eighty years old, buildings like this are becoming fewer each day. Very glad we drove up to Excelsior Springs to take some history. If you are in the area, take some time to stop in and look around.

“BEAUTIFUL! American Art Deco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

We stopped by before the building opened and was given a private tour by an employee who was just arriving. The building is now a City Office building, but the Hall of Waters was decorated with trees from local merchants. Between the decorations and the natural beauty of the structure itself, we were amazed at all we saw. Definitely worth a stop!
