    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!
