Stricta sensu? Puh-lease. This is not the Latin Wikipedia. I'm changing to English. Nelson Ricardo 23:00, July 16, 2005 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

I suggested this article to be merged with Swimming Pool. The article is currently a stub, and would do better as a section of Swimming Pool. If anyone has any comments, please place them below. --Thedjatclubrock :-) (T/C) 01:47, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

i disagree, they are fundamentally different things.--Buridan (talk) 03:22, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
I also disagree, for the same reason. I came to Wikipedia to look up natatorium and this article told me just what I wanted to know. It's more of a short article than a stub, right? Uranographer (talk) 21:28, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
I also disagree for the reason that this can be it's own article. Not everything has to be on one page. Just put a "see also" section on both swimming pool and natatorium, and it's fine... no? Nesnad (talk) 10:13, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Trivia[edit]

At Disney's Hollywood Studios, in the queue for the the Tower of Terror attraction, there is a sign for a Natatorium. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bhagley (talkcontribs) 15:13, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Additionally, you will find a Natatorium in the movie: [|The X Files: I Want to Believe]

In its own building???[edit]

I could find no evidence that the word natatorum is strictly defined as a structurally separate building containing a swimming pool. The cited article, which is merely the official webpage for Penn State's swimming pool, only says the word natatorium means an indoor pool. No dictionary I looked at says that natatorium derives from the latin phrase cella natatoria.68.103.144.192 (talk) 22:43, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Unsure about what to do about the Latin meaning, but I changed the intro to reflect a less strict stance on definition. If you find anything more, be bold and make additions. --Travis Thurston+ 22:51, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
Agreed that we need some better sourcing on that than what we have. If I find anything, I'll throw it up as a source. SchuminWeb (Talk) 03:54, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
