  • This was amazing! Not so big you get to the point of uninterested, not so small that it didn't feel like it was worth the money. So many great moments that you remember watching live or watching movies about. So many interactive features, the displays are engaging and well-shown. Don't miss the movie at the end! I can't wait for the next Olympics now!
  • Amazing! Brand new in 2020, this highly interactive and technologically based museum captures the captivating history and evolution of the Olympics from its origins in ancient Greece through modern times. I especially appreciated that it captured the role of inequality and race while focusing on the strength and discipline required of all athletes. The final video montage in the cinema had me in tears. Family friendly for all generations, it's relic-filled rooms motivate and inspire, leaving you cheering for Team USA! 🇺🇸
  • This museum is a great place to visit no matter your age. If you have ever watched the Olympics you will not be disappointed. The history and artifacts are one of a kind. A few of the exhibits are interactive, for instance you can sprint down a simulated track and compare your time with an Olympian. This museum is a great indoor activity and something you can do year around. The U.S. Olympic & Paralympic is an activity that can be enjoyed with people of all ages and a great place to visit on a date or visit with friends and family. I highly recommend this attraction.
  • I was able to take my family down to the museum this past month on a Friday late afternoon, we were one of only a few people inside at the time which made it very enjoyable and safe. The museum is incredible they incorporate new technology into the experience along with a number of interactive games. There is more information than a person can consume, you will want to spend some time investing in the various stories and chronological displays that as well as interactive exhibits at various stages in your tour.
  • How do you give more than 5 stars? This place is awesome. You can easily spend half a day here reading and learning. There are interactive exhibits, torches, medals, and so much history. Staff are beyond friendly, always present with a smile and hello. Stopped for lunch at the Café - it was great as well. This is one of the best attractions in the Springs for sure! You will love it!
