Enjoyed seeing the various equipment, etc. used over the years of the Olympics. Of course especially enjoyed the memory of the 1980 gold, particularly as a huge hockey fan. Well worth seeing for the price.

Very interesting and extensive exhibit. Having been to Hockey at the 1980's games, I also enjoyed walking around the stadium where the American - Russian game was played.

This is a small museum, but the exhibits are especially interesting if you're curious about Olympic skating and the "miracle" hockey game played in 1980. There was also quite a bit about Sonya Henie.

The town if very proud of their Olympic history, which they should be! They have had participants in all of the winter Olympics in history. Enjoyed the exhibits.

Some neat artifacts, but was all contained in a single room, which was not very large. Would have been better if paired with another attraction.

It was a rainy day so we decided to go to the museum. Glad we did. Very interesting. They had a little bit for all. Interactive stuff for kids. Wardrobe items, torches and other neat items.

It is very small museum. Amount of exponents in not big, but what you can find it is magnificent. Is shows how Technic in sport has changed, collection of clothes, equipment and medals. For that price can be bigger....

Museums aren't for everyone, I guess, but this one is near perfect! It is small, but packs a lot in. You guessed it. There is plenty from the 1980 Olympics, and the Men's Hockey Team, but that not all. They have a bobsled from 1932....More

We parked in the lot next to the museum and it was free when we were there. Some places on the street are pay as you go, so be sure to check when you park.
