We looked forward to seeing the Herb Brooks Arena during our visit to Lake Placid. The arena was just like any other hockey rink. I expected to see more memorabilia from the 1980 Miracle on Ice. We did pay $16 to see the Olympic museum....More

Had a great time visiting the arena. No admission fee, and there were skaters practicing on the ice when we were there.

The Herb Brooks Arena is a must visit for anyone who remembers the Miracle on Ice. One of the greatest moments in US sports before “dream teams”.

The tour of Herb Brooks arena was great. The arena is just another hockey rink, but Sean’s knowledge of Olympic history makes it really special. Being a native, he also has many facts and stories of Lake Placid athletes. It’s an hour well spent.

Nestled right in the middle of Main St in Lake Placid. Free admission to the arena. It has lots of memorabilia posted throughout the hallways with facts from the 1932 and 1980 Olympics. Very cool!

There is a very little bit of free parking behind the rink up the side street between the rink and the hotel. There is paid parking in front and in a large town lot of the far side of the rink
