We thoroughly enjoyed our day at the Olympic Training Center. Our tour began with a brief, rousing film that shows highlights from the most recent Games. Then we met up with our tour guide. He was good; his presentation was entertaining and full of interesting information. We were given lots of time to wander the grounds, and there's a lot... More

I love visiting this ode to sport. It places a lot of 'Go Team USA' spirit into me. A very interesting place to learn about the sport in the Olympics. Very informative, yet it has a fun side. Be sure to take some photos of the Olympic sign for a keepsake!

The museum was well-done We had a guided tour of the facilities. It was amazing and I'll be even more interested in the olympics now that I've seen it.

Great place to visit on a rainy afternoon. Even though it was raining and we had to walk outside for a good portion of the tour this was a very interesting place to visit. You start out with a short video that has a commentary on Olympic athletes and finishes with highlights from the most recent Olympic and Paralympic Games.... More

We had not planned to make this part of our visit to Colorado Springs but we would have missed out on a national treasure. The opening video of the tour leaves you so inspired of our Olympians and Paralympians that you will be either choked up or have goose bumps the entire time. Our tour guide Brian was the perfect...

Definitely an interesting place to stop by in Colorado Springs. Unfortunately I misread the website and we originally showed up intending to take a tour on Sunday--the Team USA shop is open, but there are no tours on Sundays--so we decided to return on Monday. The highlights video they show is excellent (and will probably make you cry if you're... More

This place has received some mixed reviews on TripAdvisor. I visited with my dad, and we enjoyed the visit. First of all, it's free. You can see one of three locations in the US where our corporations and citizens put our most promising amateur athletes to train for the Olympic Games. There is a neat, 15 minute film to kick...

I come here often as I have the opportunity to volunteer here weekly and have spent over two weeks on campus doing volunteer work. The cafeteria is always the highlight of the day. The food is impeccable. Delicious and nutritious. There are ingredients posted over each buffet style offering. The food also has to be hormone free because of USADA... More

Obviously this is a must see. Call ahead and see if there are any Olympians signing autographs. Great historical record of Olympics in the past and present. Get some cool souvenirs while your there too, that your friends wont have.

Loved everything about the tour, the tour guide was knowledgeable and we were able to see many of the training sites and watch many of the athletes train. Had fun places to take pictures and some beautiful statues. The movie was the best...a place you should not miss.
