Visit the Center
Open year-round, the Center charges no admission and has a staff eager to share their passion for racing. We urge visitors to pick up a book, study the displays from our library, archives, model car, and racing art and photography collections, or watch “25 Years at Speed: The Watkins Glen Story with Brock Yates,” a historic film on the early history of racing on the streets of Watkins Glen and our local track in the Center’s theater. Throughout the race season, the Center features a notable race car in a rotating display in our main hall.
