  • We weren't charged admission but the only thing you could see was the Ice Rink. It wasn't lite up so it was kind of boring. Would have liked to see someone skating or playing Hockey!  more »
  • Museum focuses almost exclusively on the two Olympics held in Lake Placid, 1932 and 1980. Information not just on athletes and events, but what it took to prepare this small town for the international...  more »
  • There was no way I was going to get to Lake Placid and not visit the site of the 1980 'Miracle on Ice". No fancy tours, but just to walk around the arena was thrilling.  more »

  • Beautiful Olympic Museum with a lot of great items on display. History of events and athletes in a thought provoking layout. Great for families and anyone interested in learning about the Olympics in General.
  • I read an unfavorable review and completely disagree. If you enjoy Olympics history or followed 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympics, this museum is worth the visit. Located next door to the ice rink where the 'Miracle on Ice' occurred, and just inside from the outdoor speed skating rink where Eric Heiden earned 5 gold medals, the museum is surrounded by history. Inside, you will find everything the drones the Olympics and Lake Placid. You will be surprised by what you find. Don't be afraid to ask questions because the staff knows their stuff. Very entertaining and a bit educational. Touch history. Worth every penny!
  • Really cute and interactive. Lots of exhibits from the 1980 Olympics and others. Recommended for everyone.
  • Awesome smoked BBQ, I am a snob and this is great!
  • Great displays and exhibits on all things Winter Olympics, plus the history of Lake Placid.
