The Headquarters of History...

Walk through the Olympic Center and you’ll see hallways adorned with plaques and banners toting the achievements of past Olympians. You’ll find a museum filled with memorabilia, photos, and video footage from the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Games. Tour groups following tour guides, listening intently to the history of the building.

In the Olympic Center and on its grounds are skating rinks, open to the public, where gold medals have been won – including the famous Herb Brooks Arena where the “Miracle On Ice” game was played and the speed skating Oval where many Olympic and other international speed skating competitions have been held.

Even the building itself is a monument to Olympic history. It was initially erected to house both sporting facilities and act as the headquarters of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and then later added into for the 1980 Olympics.

Located right in the heart of Lake Placid Village near restaurants and lodging, The Olympic Center is a great place to stop before or after a meal, or as a starting point or cap-end to your day!
