Any aspiring Olympic swimmer or those who appreciate the sport will love this splashy homage to the best backstrokers, frontstrokers, and divers in the world. The museum houses the world's largest collection of aquatic memorabilia and is the single largest source of aquatic books, manuscripts, and literature. Among the highlights are Johnny Weissmuller's Olympic medals; Mark Spitz's starting block used to win six of his seven 1972 Olympic gold medals; and more than 60 Olympic, national, and club uniforms, warm-ups, and swimsuits. For those who don't mind getting their feet wet, the ISHOF Aquatic Complex is the only one of its kind in the world with two 50-meter pools, a diving well, and a swimming flume.
