    We were on our annual family vacation and had planned it all out on the computer for things to do and this morning we were supposed to spend at the wax museum but when we got there it was closed.According to the computer they were going to be open so we walked away disappointed and wondered how we were goin to spend the morning. We went up to the hot springs to see if we could figure out how to kill some hours and found the swimming park was open!! OO what fun we had on the slides and in the natural hot springs. Even dad got into the slide and went down! Very helpful people and all friendly. After swimming we toured the park and got to see the buffalo and the swinging bridge. AWESOME view off that. Anyone going to Thermopolis this is a must see even if you cant go swimming.

    In 1896 a treaty was signed with the Shoshone and the Arapaho which gave the public use of the largest mineral hot springs in the world. The hot springs was known as having 'healing water.' The hot mineral water is maintained at 104 degrees Fahrenheit to provide the safest healing water possible.

    The World's Largest Mineral Hot Springs are open year round, including holidays. You can swim, slide, or just relax and soak in the water from the State Park's Big Spring.

    A historic wax museum focusing on the American West frontier and folk history and culture sound exciting? Not really. It includes early Native American life, early explorers & mountain men, cowboys, outlaws and others set in appropriate scenes. Most figures and scenes were done by nationally known wildlife sculpture/artist Kenneth Bunn. If you want to know the folk tales and stories about these historic figures, there's maps, memorabilia and early newspaper etchings & stories that set the scene. There's even a history of wax museums... and a real-life gallows.
