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.

We love watching the Olympics on TV and our teens play high school sports, but this gave an entirely different perspective on the life of an athlete. Our only disappointment was that our kids aren't interested in any of the sports that are featured at this center. This is definitely not for young children.

The problem here is that they have kids give the tours and they aren't motivated to give a good tour. Our tour guide kept checking his phone for messages and didn't talk much about what we were seeing. There were quite a few places that you counldn't get in to so you have to look through large glass windows to... More

Could not hear our guide. He was an older man and thought he had a voice loud enough for all to hear but he did not. They have microphones they can use and it's a shame he would not use one. Grounds are nice. Of course gift shop is overpriced.

We have a swimmer in our group who is aspiring to go to the Olympics. This was great for her to see!! (she is 12). Tour of the facility is free and you get to walk around to see many of the complexes. Shooting, swimming, wrestling, to name a few. It was a neat experience to see!!

Maybe it was the fact that it rained the whole time and the tour was mostly outdoors, but I walked away feeling l could have lived a full and wonderful life without seeing the Olympic Training Center. On the tour, we saw: an empty gun range! an empty swimming pool! an empty wrestling room! a gym! It just wasn't that... More

My wife and I recently traveled here to visit the Olympic Training Center. It was easy to get to the facility. We signed up for the hour tour and we were impressed. They took us to many buildings on the campus. We were able to see where the athletes trained and how they trained. Our guide was very informative and... More

Adults and kids both will enjoy this tour of the facility (1 of only 3 in the country), beginning with a great video of Olympians. We saw the swimming pool, wrestling facility, shooting facility, weight room, and dormitories. One of the best parts is that it was free too!
