  • Had a great time visiting this state of the art, interactive museum. We visited on the Friday of the Hall of Fame induction ceremony/festival, and we got our tickets for the last time slot of the day....  more

  • Visited during the Hall of Fame festival, might come back on a less busy day to see if its any better. Seems like the technology of the museum does not work when there are a lot of people in a room...

  • What an amazing museum and building! Saw gold medal speed skater Erin Jackson there--what a surprise! The kids loved the high-tech experience. The food in the cafe and service was excellent. I must say, beautiful restroom, too! Loved the artifacts and history!
  • Hands down, best museum I’ve ever been to!!! It’s interactive experiences and interesting displays are awe inspiring. It was well planned out and designed. Staff was all knowledgeable and personable. Appreciate their hyper-attention to inclusivity and accessibility…it’s poignant. A beautiful, moving exhibit! I would go again and recommend to anyone! Expect a 2-2.5 hour experience when taking time at most displays
  • Our family had a great time at the museum. When you arrive you get a badge that you program with your name and favorite sport. Thoughout the museum you use your badge for the interactive activities! You get to "try" skiing, archery, bobsledding, soccer, hockey and sprinting through their simulators. You also get to see all the torches and medals from each Olympics and so much more. Our whole family loved it!!
  • The museum was okay. I definitely don’t think it was worth $25. While the interactive activities are cool they are slow to work and pick up different people who are standing too close when you are trying to use them. I also understand that the Olympics has a partnership with Visa but for a museum that wants anyone to come you should take all types of credit cards or at least list on your website you only take Visa. I don’t have a Visa card and luckily I had cash on me but then they can’t even give you cash back so I got a gift card with my change on it which I wasn’t going to use there because again everything there was more expensive than what it was worth. Also there was a whole room of the museum closed off because the athletes that were on site were using it for their break so we didn’t even get to see everything after spending all that money. This was a one and done visit and there are far cooler things to see before this there.
  • This museum is among the best I have ever attended! Most exhibits are interactive and sense you when you near them since everyone gets a lanyard with a electronic card upon entry. Additionally, the architecture is a huge selling point since it is extremely unique. There is also a bridge going from the museum to a nearby park that is fun to walk across with a great view at the end. Great place to go to for an afternoon!
