Loved looking at the memorabilia from the 1932 and 1980 Olympics. They had torches from many other ones too that were really interesting. The fact that it is in the Olympic training center where the hockey team won was great. We got to see that too.

As a person who remembers watching the game at home this is a must stop for any USA hockey fan. Filled with history

It is just a room and takes about 10-15 minutes to go through. Don't think it is worth the full ticket price.

If you were around during the 1980 Olympics or are a fan of the "Miracle on Ice" US Men's Hockey Gold Medal history, this is a nice little museum. It's housed in the same field house where the "Miracle" game took place and you can see the ice rink and locker rooms. They have assorted paraphernalia from both the 1932... More

The Lake Placid Olympic Museum is a small, but very detailed and nice venue. It is located inside the massive Lake Placid Sports Center which contains the famous 1980 Rink, 1932 Rink and USA Rink. The representatives put a lot of hard work into this museum chronicling all the major Lake Placid sporting events, torches, ice skates, helmets, outfits, videos... More

The museum was nice. Very small. I think we spend 45 minutes there and kids kept going in circle. The exhibits are small as well. It has exhibit about hockey (miracle on ice)

The museum can be seen in less than 30 minutes. It was very limited in scope and focused primarily on Lake Placid Olympics and people who competed in the Olympics who were from the area. It is located within the Olympic skating complex. I found the museum interesting but I had thought it would have been larger and included more... More

Just watching the Miracle on Ice game and seeing the hockey memorabilia is worth it for us. I consider the entrance fee a donation to the Museum :)
