“strong spirit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

This place does have Olympic spirit - come and taste it. Staff is friendly and knowlegible. Unfortunately, they show most of the facilities just from the outside, but it is still worth a visit.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Lots of this can be seen at high schools - and in better condition. I was surprised at how old everything seemed. But fun to be where some famous athletes trained.

“Got a view of Olympic life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

This free tour is worth your time. It starts out with a movie about the olympics and then you get to tour where Olympians train. It was impressive to see the size of the mat for floor execises and learn secrets of the pool. The tour is about 1 hour in total time and you look around in some areas by yourself. Make sure to take the time well worth it.

“Tour guide and tour boring”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Save yourself some time and explore the site yourself. The movie uninformative and a waste of time. The tour guide wanted to set a record for the quickest tour ever. waited a half hour for a 15 minute tour? The WWII aviation museum was a much better experience. I've been to two olympics, trust me, do it yourself. You'll have a much better experience.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Although free, what you actually get to see at the training centre is rather limited. The guided tours only take you to around 4 areas, and you usually have to peek in through the windows. The video presentation is definitely worth viewing.
