History Museum · Hidden Gem · Specialty Museum
The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Museum will be a premier international cultural destination, welcoming people of all ages and backgrounds, to come together in the spirit of the Olympic Games. The Museum will be highly interactive, featuring 20,000 square feet of exhibition space, a state-of-the-art theater, broadcast studio, and Hall of Fame. Visitors will journey through engaging, highly interactive exhibits which share the history of the Olympic Games, the stories of the greatest U.S. Olympians and Paralympians, and the latest science and technology behind their training. The Museum promises a chance to test your own physical prowess, experiencing first-hand, the rigors of athletic competition and fortitude of Team USA, along with a unique opportunity to march into the pulsating, adrenaline charged opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games, a highlight of an athlete’s career.

A few minutes away from the new Museum, the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center will offer visitors a companion experience: an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look into the daily lives and training regimens of America’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

An all-encompassing experience, the U.S. Olympic Museum will be a timeless institution that reflects the thrill and spirit of the Games and our pride in Team USA.

Like the athletes themselves, the Museum’s goal is not simply to match expectations, but to exceed them.

  • Friendly knowledgeable staff walked us through using RFID and stylus. Started on 3rd floor worked our way down through interactive displays, stylus (pen) used to access information easy to use. 10 minute theater showing brought me to tears. Special effect rooms, clean very clean. Torches from Olypics and other historical momentous articles behind glass. Some items are not behind glass. The lighting is incredible as you lose where you are, in a good way. Excellent gift shop and on site restaurant. Keepsake and more.
  • Brand new high tech interactive We were able to get tickets easily online for a Saturday. They had only been open 1.5 weeks! Able to park for free on the street as the parking meters have not yet been installed. Parking in their lot will be $6 Lots of staff on hand to direct you and get you checked in. Multi steps to get you set up and a demo to make sure your badge is working. Then you take an elevator to the top floor and work your way down through the history of the Olympics and interactive areas where you can try several sports. Very well done and lots of staff to assist and answer questions.
  • We had the best time at the Olympic and Paralympic Museum. This is truly an amazing place! We brought four kids ranging from 8-13 and everyone had a blast. There is so much interactive things to do. The website says 1-2 hours but you can clearly stay much longer if you choose. This place is full of so much information. I can’t pick a favorite thing, but the torches from every Olympics were pretty incredible. Also seeing how equipment has evolved is crazy. There are lots of sports equipment to see in person. Neat for kids to realize how things were when their parents were younger. I would highly recommend this for locals and visitors. There is also a digital locker so that you can go back and read more on anything you tagged in your visit, as well as any interactive activities you participated in. The job they are doing to keep everyone safe during COVID-19 was amazing. I rarely go inside places during this time and I felt totally safe. They are constantly sanitizing and there are stations everywhere to sanitize your hands. They even give you a stylist pen to use on all the screens. I will visit again if back in this part of Colorado.
  • This museum is INCREDIBLE! My husband and I are on our roadtrip honeymoon this week and unexpectedly found this place and it absolutely blew us away in so many ways! First of all, the building is gorgeous and amazing architecturally. The exhibits are higher tech than I have ever seen in a museum or anywhere for that matter! Amazing movement sensing screens, many interactive exhibits in which you try an Olympic sport, and huge screens for very moving films! Each of the staff we interacted with were notably friendly, kind, and helpful. Many of their staff are olympians themselves and I found myself a little starstruck in their presence! We heard two of them tell us some of their Olympic stories, and it was absolutely inspiring and wonderful to hear. The whole museum is accessible for people with disabilities, more so than any other place I have been, being designed specifically with this in mind. I cannot say enough good things about this museum. I will be telling all of my friends and family about it! I can’t wait to go back!
  • Truly extraordinary! The interactive displays are fantastic and the staff is the most helpful I've ever seen! This is so much more than a museum. There isn't a boring square foot in the whole place. Gorgeous, modern, and light. This is a must-see in Colorado Springs!
